a wonderful series Lluis,   dark, eerie, atmospheric...spooky as we say.

re the high ISO...I have never shot above ISO 800... even with film btw.

this might be a good situation to try auto ISO with the lens wide open  
and the highest ISO set to max 1250 or even at 640 with a 1.4 lens......

and see how that works...

in any case I think it all works out fine...and I appreciate seeing  
these very moving reportage images...
