[EDIT]

Thank you all for the nice comments and votes.
Wow, 3rd ribbon in less than two weeks... happy happy happy!

-------------

I was in Rome for a glamour shooting and I was walking my way back to my car (which was 1 mile away and I had my backpack on and a bag with lights and tripods), when I saw THIS... how could I not steal this picture?!

I quickly mounted my 85mm and after a couple of shots he disappeared behind a corner.
Unfortunately I couldn't go after him, because I had my camera backpack on the ground and it would have took less than 2 seconds for anyone to steal it, so I actually had no idea of what I've got, since I didn't even have the time to set the camera (look at the settings... f/5.6, 1/500 s, ISO 1250!! What the...)

Anyway, as I opened this on my computer, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the shot, somewhat, came out good!

I hope you like the processing i did on this one.


This is another picture I took, 20 minutes later that afternoon.

I think I would have liked it even more in BW... and definitely with less sharpening.

But, I'm probably in the minority.

The hat is just... amazingly wonderful! Ha!

Well done!


Thank you 21_F.gif Lydia :)

You mean something like this?

This was my BW version, but I really wanted this guy to pop out of the screen.
This explains the oversharpening and the color choice! :)

Thank you for your feedback :)
