Gerard in Fancy Dress at the POWWOW

By TimothyDMorton  
Like the previous photographic illustrations from this GRAND POWWOW it was opened in Camera-in-the-RAW and fixed colour and then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 and resized to 600 x 401 px and applied the UNSHARP MASK and then saved as JPEG for sharing in this site.

Lastly I would like to thank you for your comments and votes from the GRAND POWWOW in Caledonia, Ontario.

A rather grand looking headdress very well captured Timothy.

He really doesn't look like a Gerard, does he...?
I've looked back at some of your earlier uploads from the event, the light obviously fluctuated a lot during the day and here you have the disadvantage of shadows over his face and particularly his eyes. So there's a reduction in the character conveyed. A bit of fill-in flash would have helped. As it is, a some added brightness, and some dodging on the eyes, could make a difference there. I'll have a go at a Mod.
Normally I wouldn't want the eyes as central in the frame as this, but the balance of head-dress to costume feathers works rather well.
