It is so not fair to the old lady - you made her look like the wicket witch of Oz. Or the opening act with the witches of Macbeth... why would you do that?
uhuu... I suppose she is happily looking at the sausages ... but .. strange photo ...
Only strange I guess because Shaun has yanked up the ISO because of dim light.However, this is my favourite type of subject. I love the way he has captured the light in the white hair. I love the happy cackle on her face and I also love the pile of salami in the foreground.
It was a high ISO. She is a very "characteristic" woman and I made some changes... admittedly may have made her seem a little more "vivid" but not "unfairly".... perhaps too much contrast, but that is how I interpreted her.... she also shouted at me, but that is another story :)
It is a strange photograph (Martina)... that is all there is to it... she did make me feel a little uncomfortable in hindsight Ellie... does it show in my picture? :::)))
I wouldn't mess with that lady! Check your shirt for holes and your pockets for chicken legs :)Go to church this Sunday - light a candle :)
WOA, that's a bit disturbing...
