Christmas Markets 1

By CathyI  
The Christmas markets opened here at the weekend – we’re on countdown to Christmas now! Smile Traditional handicrafts and various gifts as well as tasty food and drink are offered every year at these traditional festive German markets. As such, they’re very popular and there are always people coming and going…I used a long exposure to convey this feeling.

Technical details:
Exposure: ISO 100, 4 secs. @f16
PS Elements: Perspective corrected via transform/skew, levels and brightness/contrast adjusted, “brighten midtones” colour curve applied. Sharpened/bordered/framed.
