Working the shadows with the M9 and Zeiss Sonnar

This image might be a bit dark. I'm in the field and don't have the ability to lighten/darken the images till I get home. This is a jpeg right out of the Leica M9. Most likely if I use the file for anything else, I'll go back to the RAW file and clean it up there.

Full sun glaring down, hot and dusty in southern Malawi and I'm spending time in one of the small villages with a crew that works with orphans and their care providers. This women has five children but her husband was murdered last year so she raises them on her own.

I took a few images for the care group that's helping her, then grabbed a couple frames of just her and the youngest. She's just in her doorway out of the sun. This was done with the M9 and the Zeiss 50mm f1.5. I forgot to change the lens setting on the camera but it doesn't seem to have made a difference that I've noticed yet.
