photoblog image hope

another shot from my  point-and-shoot days

the authorities decided that these structures were illegal...after so many years (i met them there when i got into college and this was taken after i'd graduated!)

didn't notice the woman there till i'd taken the shot and thus felt she deserved more attention...so i changed her grey top to red

I like how you manipulated this photo. Emphasizing her makes the picture much more powerful.
DrAW!: thanks

Powerful image!
DrAW!: thanks
Indeed a very nice image.
However, not such a fan of so in ur face colour separation. I think the image would still work quite well without the use of this effect.
More own opinion smile
DrAW!: i feel you deji
sometimes i feel i cheat too much in my pictures...if you're gonna cheat let it really be something hard to do so the cheat itself becomes the big deal (like the previous day's post).
believe it or not, when i took this pic, the selective colouring thingy was a big deal in nigeria!

I feel that the red effect sort of alienates the woman from the pic, jarring the senses with its incongruity...the pic would've been better served if she was left in grey, and thus remained a part of the entire setting- then I would've felt her unexpressed sense of loss.
I feel cheated...I'd've preferred to have been allowed to take in the carnage, and then find her in there, sifting through. As it is, u've taken her out and stuck her back in...and she doesn't fit anymore. You've torn a great pic in two.
My humble opinion only.
DrAW!: wow!
i really respect this opinion (i know it's hard to believe, but i'm not patronising you)
i never saw it that way before!

not that i agree that it would be more commercially viable, but someday...if i can find it...i'll post a version with her vest in the original colour
