How Much???

By SlowSong
I haven't seen a woman rickshaw driver before but I expect her rates are just as extortionate as the blokes'. I've allowed Mods on this shot as I've tried all sorts to change the colour of the bright yellow jacket to tone it down a bit. If any of you experts out there want to have a go please do; It's driving me nuts. People are so inconsiderate in what they wear sometimes. Smile

People are so very inconsiderate aren't they, Chris?!! SadSad Done a mod, selecting each brightly coloured area separately, then using Hue/Saturation, changed first of all the Hue, then reduced the Saturation. Also then using Levels, reduced the brightness Smile
Often I find brightly coloured areas in my images, though not as great in size as this, and they draw the eye straight to that area, so will reduce the saturation to make it less eye-catching. Hope my tips help! Grin

P.S. Just noticed I've missed a tiny bit at the bottom of the yellow coat, and part of her hair is darkened down too! But you get the idea.... Wink

Not a bad job there Trev. Much better than my efforts. Smile

I found the blown highlights (reflections) on the jacket hard to dampen down but I think the original was far too contrasty to do much about those as they were bright white. That's the trouble with bright, sunny days, as well as people who wear the wrong things. Grin

Cheers. Smile

Good street shot and content, in London those "Tuk Tuk's" or " Rickshaws" cost a fortune to ride and are a traffic nuisance in the West End... Isabel TongueTongue

Thanks isabel for giving me the correct word. I knew it wasn't pedallo but just couldn't think. Have now amended blurb. Smile

Tried a bit of colour reduction in selective colour in PS Chris.

Pretty good Bri. You've taken the yellow down nicely. It's good to get another pair of eyes when you get stuck. I'm usually a bit pants at selections so that doesn't help either. Blush I'll have another go myself when i get a minute.
Cheers. Smile

Nice one, that's such a good expression. I like mod 2, it does the job very well.
