Date: Jan 29, 2006
Aperture: f5.6

Galleries: Emotive, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Jan 29, 2006

Taken once again at my favourite venue for outdoor portraiture, New Farm Park. There are all sorts of great areas that create interest in this one area. Zoe is thoroughly heartbroken because I want her to stay still while I taken the photos rather than let her go on the swings. Sorrow, personified :(

Post processing: Crop, Unsharp mask, Levels, Desaturate, Colour Bal with Blue increased to 65-ish, Save for Web.

Hope you like it.

very nicely done. i'd love to see her eyes brought up a bit, but that's pretty tough when you can't dodge or do any selective editing. love the crop and the background frames her beautifully nice work

This will definetly get a ribbon, or at least top 10, couldn't have been executed better. very natural expresion, only thing i dont like is that white diamond shaped patch by her collar bone. good work.

It's not only the picture what's blue, but she is feeling blue, too. Her face is very expressive, I also love the crop and the exposure. My favourite by the time, good luck! (10)
