Snapped this out the car window. I took about 30 shots like this hoping for this one. Manual settings to overexpose and create blur.

Cropped. Calculations to b/w, which I blended in pin light mode. Then I did a high pass sharpen. Then some curves. Then channel mixer. All to create a comic-book sort of feeling.

Thanks for all the great comments. That hairstyle really does remind me of my dad's Aunt Minnie, God rest her soul.

I still don't know what to make of this, she looks to be on the hunt, but the humor takes over for me. Scored her highly. I like Brian's comment.

Oh heck, I just busted out laughing when I saw the title, and felt guilty for being such a simple soul. Then I saw who did it. Then I saw what Pointy surmised. It's a good day.

This has me laughing out loud (!). Don't know why. Some poor unsuspecting lady motorist has been christened Aunt Minnie and posted to an online photography contest. Gotta love the Internet Age.

Coming back to this several days later, the formidable Aunt Minnie is holding her own. Quite terrifying. Nine.

I love this. I smile every time I look at it. I don't think the processing could be better and the capture is perfect. 10
