That wasn't a disaster, it was a catastrophe and not just for the piston, there must have been serious disruption to the entire motor. I don't know if you remember the lighting from almost two years ago, but I'm guessing from good light on the back, front, above and the left, along with the monochrome treatment, it was a fluorescent fixture? Did you skip all the way from a K20D to a K-1?

It was probably my simple still life set up, "S" curved sheet of thick ish paper as background and floor, sitting on wide window ledge, natural light from behind and above and sides.

In this case split toned, highlights gold and a slight blue in the shadows.
