Easter Sunday. Dusk. Lindos town square.

Traditional dancing. Food. Celebration. Families and small children welcome...

A real privilege to be there, and join in the celebration (though not the dancing, for which my two left feet would be a bit of an encumbrance...)

Please see the versions for other views of the evening!

Hi John,

You've captured some more good "Reportage" images but are you supposed to be out partying when your on holiday?Grin

John I've posted a mod on number six where I've lightened the image to bring out a touch more detail. In your blend modes if you select screen "Screen" it will lighten the image but it may be to mouch so I reduced the opacity to 50%. I have then earsed the alterations from the white building top left of centre, this is because we have'nt finished yet Wink. Then using the Shadows/Highlights adjustment which can be found in Elements under "Enhance" > "Adjust Lighting" > "Shadow/Highlights" or PS under "Image" > "Adjustments" > "Shadow/Highlights". I set the shadows to 13% (my lucky number, well no else seems to want it Grin) and highlights to 0%, this will lighten the white building, thats why I removed the effect from "Screen" or it could have eneded up to bright.

Take care but keep partying

Martin

I'm an internal auditor in the public sector: taking pictures IS partying!

Thank you for the info: this is definitely increasing my knowledge of PS a great deal!

The mod is distinctly more zappy than the shot I posted: I tend to view mods the way Ansel Adams talked about prints - the "performance" while the original (or the negative - I still do darkroom work, and prefer both the doing and the results) is the "negative".

There's room for different interpretations: this is the richness and diversity of photography - and it's wonderful that EPZ allowss us to share in this way!

I love 2 and 7, - loaded mods. Apparently Internal Auditors have an eye for the girls!
