Working Hard

With the school week half-over, I haven’t been out with my camera for a while.  I’ve missed some great sunsets, so that sure is a shame.  The good news is that I plan to go camping this weekend and I think I’ll get plenty of use out of this Nikon.

I’m posting something I went back to retouch before I made the decision to post.  I loved this picture – but was never happy with the fact that this lady’s face isn’t as sharp as I’d like it to be.  I think part of the reason stems from the fact that a 300mm lens with a hood on is hard to ignore – and I just didn’t feel like holding it up all day.

Anyway, here’s the photo.  I decided to desaturate some colors and leave others in… in addition, I increased some details through sharpening and a few minor contrast tweaks.  The thing that really makes the photo, however, is the slight smirk on her face, I think.
