Get it... cabbage... money or the veggie... ah. Anyway, this was an early February farmer's market visit. It was actually cold this day in Florida.

Ran this through Topaz Adjust and did a bit of dodging/burning to bring out some highlights. A mask was made for the veggies and the color was adjusted to give some warmth as they were in shadow. The 300k limit sucked on this one as compressing an image like this is tough.

Honest and gutsy candid street/market image. This kind of work is real photography. A lady handing over a white bag (what's in it?), a cold shopper with hood and cap (what's he looking at?), a blonde scanning for the nicest veg and 2 x $1 notes in her hand (did she find what she was looking for?). Handwritten prices on cardboard. Veg textures and late afternoon partial backlight make this type of work challenging, not just exposure but also camera shake and blur. Maybe you put the camera on Auto but who cares. It worked!

It's not a studio shot, and thats what makes it fun and real. It takes guts to walk around strangers with a camera these days. Keep it up. I take longer to look at these shots than the studio shots. They are really more likable and interactive in so many ways.
