Talking of challenging lighting conditions - it can't get much more challenging than the high contrast you were faced with here. Excellent control and again I love the wide angle view.

The umbrellas are always bringing a cheerful note to a shot! Though I favour your B&W shots, this one is a most pleasant invitation !
