Exhale and desaturate

I took my K-01 and 40mm lens to work yesterday (as it's so small). I took a few photos. And a few more when I got back.

I decided to "bleach bypass" the photos: boosting the contrast for deep shadows, and lowering the saturation so the colours drained away.

I quite like the finished results. It's a common technique in fashion and advertising and I can see why.
