Leica M246 with Summilux 1:1.4/50 at f/6.8 and 1/1,000

I wanted more bokeh but blew our the background because of the midday sun on the tarmac (note this is Bangkok so very strong sunlight). I reduced aperture and increased it slowly to find the balance at 1/4,000 which is the max speed of the camera. I ran out of time though and the engineers moved and made the picture less interesting. Lesson learned: start with 5.6 on a bright day and increase quickly using Aperture mode and same composition.
