Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Burst of Color II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 35mm f/2.0D
Location: Pike Place Market
Date: Jun 26, 2007
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/50
Date Uploaded: Jun 26, 2007

Taken at the Pike Place Market in Seattle during Lunch.

Non Crop
Some Curves adjustments (a bunch of times).
As a result of all my curve adjustments, I had a hard time making this fit in 150k with Capture NX.

Pretty difficult shot for me, as there are three light sources (incandescent bulbs, florescent overhead lights, and day light streaming in from the side). Considering basic editing, I managed as best I could.

As for appeal, it is okay. Missing that special something. But finally have some time with the busy schedule at work and at home to go out and take some shots.

I very much like it. Too often things here are simplified too much - here there's enough to see to make the picture interesting and pleasing. The eye can wander and take in the sights. Love the overhanging lights! And your post is very good as far as I can tell.

nice color. I don't get her expression; is she supposed to be angry? Anyway, nice photo.

this looks like it could be an advertisement for something. Good capture, and great use of color.

Very nice candid...catching her daydreaming like that makes for a nice photographic moment. Everything is so crisp and colorful. Well done!
