D800 with Lossless-Compressed NEF.
Some of these images would present very nicely in black and white, but I have left them in RGB color so as to provide the full “picture”.
White balance was “to taste”, partly reflecting the feel of the subject. Not that the D800 generally requires +8 magenta to compensate for its slightly green tint propensity.
All comments here based on viewing the 16-bit TIF versions on a wide-gamut calibrated NEC PA301W display. The JPEG versions are high quality, but might not preserve the total color or tonal range fully, in subtle ways.
