A woman at a street faire painting one of those paintings where the letters are made out of different shapes, usually animals. I forget what it's called, but it's awesome. I'm usually very shy about taking pictures of random people, but she didn't mind a bit. This is a candid, so I know it's not perfect, but I couldn't resist when I saw her painting with her big floppy hat covering her whole face.

The pink color selection was not done in post-prossesing, it was done all in the camera by choosing the "color select" mode. I'm still playing with my new camera and it's fun. I didn't realize how much pink there was in the shot until I got home. Her shirt, flower, nails, paint, paint brush, and scarf were all pink! I am actually a little bias towards this image in a bad way because I HATE pink...ew, I gag whenever I see it. Still, I liked the rosy color on her, especially in the shots where her lips showed a little bit. But of course, this is a faceless challenge, so I'll make due with what I have w/out getting 20 DNMC's. All I did after that was mess with basic brightness, color, contrast and added my soft-glow filter which darkened the background a bit more and gave a smooth look to it.

Hope you like pink!!

Very nice shot. Sorry normally I'm more verbose, but that pretty much sums it up. Nice shot, pleasant to look at.

This is real nice. Like the use of the hat, and the selective desat just works.

I love the softness of this photo. I also am impressed with the way you portray her creativity and passion coming out from her onto paper. Beautiful!

Love this. Very nice use of selective coloring & attention to detail - love the tint of pink on the fingernails, the big floppy hat, everything!
