A lot better without the distracting vivid sky.

Yes, I agree. I enjoy candid people pics and this is a good one. Looking at some of the other images uploaded, this might benefit from desaturating 'everything but the girl' Smile

OK, keep the bird in colour and set the rest to B/W, worth a try?

I keep going back to view this image, it tells so many stories, for me anyway.

Bored housewife, bored photographers wife perhaps, soaking up the sun, here under duress, I dunno. I think its a good un and top marks for having the guts to take it, not everyone would have.

That's better!! now the woman draws the eye and not the sky. The yellow bag also helps take the eye in her direction, having looked at both I am gonna stick my neck out and put my money on this one being closer to the original un-tinkered with shot. This one would have made a better competition entry.

Please excuse me if I am speaking out of turn - but I suspect that the woman and man in the forground have been added to the original picture. Nay, having looked again I would put money on it.

It struck me as odd in the thumbnail - she is too bright. I thought at first you had just over saturated her - but this is not the case.

I'm no professional - but two big give-aways here:

1. The 'new' couple are sitting on chairs which do not match those set out for the real audience.

2. The shadows give it away. The real audience is lit from the left while the new couple are lit from the right.

Whatever you say, redsnapper. You took the picture. I am very interested to know how you explain the conflicting shadows though??

My name is redsnappa not redsnapper

honest guv. People were cloned out, distracting coloured shirts & hats among the spectators were changed and the sky dropped in. I have the original tranny (not the Turner prize winner) to prove it.

i think it's the perspective, nigel. i think the shadows are all pointing forward, but the viewer is in the middle of the group. if you look to your right the shadows will be on the opposite side from when you look to your left. did you use a wide angle lense, redsnappa? that would contribute to that.

Why did I not think of that, the direction of the conflicting direction of the shadows confused me as well & took the bloomin picture.

Yes I used a 28mm lens.

apologies for the mis-speeling!

Well the 28mm lens explains it then. Glad we got to the bottom of that one. How much do I owe?? LOL
