This look was thru an editing and plugins program...The originals came out darker and when I tried to bring out details it was very noisy, then tried a noise removal program but lost even more detail. I use Irfanview alot for editing. There are all kinds of compatible filters and plugins that you can add to it. The plugin's I used for this was Topaz Simplify and Topaz Adjust...

In the camera you can do some pretty cool things. Through "Set Picture Control" (its in the shooting menu) you can use 'standard' 'neutral''vivid' and 'monochrome' and within each of those modes you can do adjustments and get some neat looking photos...Of course this is probably more info than you need right now, didn't mean to blab on!!! but if you have any questions feel free to ask, I may or may not know the answer... ;)
