I found myself near St Paul's cathedral in London last night. I used my x10 to make these:

Fuji x10, 7.1mm (28mm equiv), 1/15th, f/2.8, ISO 800, fill flash, hand held. Auto EXR says that it used multiple exposures to improve dynamic range. B&W conversion done in Lightroom, not in-camera. Also did a graduated filter to reduce the left side of the frame. This is a really hard shot to do with a typical P&S, because it juggles the fill flash (yes from the built-in!) on the statue, the dark trees and the very bright dome. With most P&S I think I'd have had to bring UP the brightness of the foreground statue, while here I had to REDUCE it in post.

This one was shot in A mode, 9mm (36mm equivalent), 1/40th, f/2.2, ISO 400, hand held, no Auto EXR. Captured in RAF and converted to B&W in LR4.

I was really surprised by this one. It's just a shot, no special photography knowledge - literally point and shoot. Given that it's a night shot and the wide dynamic range in visuals, I'm pretty surprised. I did tone down the highlights on the dome just a little; from memory by about 1/3rd stop.

This one took some rotational editing, because I used my 3" tripod on the top of a wooden bench. I ended up getting the shot kind of skewed off to the left, which I had to undo in Lightroom with a considerable (4.5°) rotation. This was 7mm, 2 seconds, f/5.6, ISO 100. Image stabilization was ON, because the tripod is definitely not as stable as a Gitzo 1348!

I'm impressed with the little camera's ability to get things done.
