The top image was push processed 2 to 5 stops. The girl was pushed 2 to 2.5 stops. The guys face and surrounding area is pushed 4.5 to 5 stops. Bottom image was not pushed processed. Taken with a Fuji X-E1 ISO 3200
Normally I would consider an image pushed this much to be trash. I was shooting the project in a place where photography is banned. I only had 5 days to shoot enough pix to make the book. I also lost half a day due to rain. So, my quality standards had to be relaxed a little if I wanted to complete this project.
