Saw this person walking down the sidewalk behind a line of parked cars, got my camera out of the car and took three shots before she went around the corner. Awful exposure conditions (FG/subject in deep shadow, shooting into the sun) necessitated extreme Curves adjustment to bring out subject, but also flattening dark tones into a charcoal-like look, while leaving the bright color in the sky. De-saturated the Blues/Cyans to minimize the prominence of the fringe around the trees.
