Mexican Hats

By KingBee
And now, as they say, for something completely different. A bit of colour for a change, involving this Epson v700 scan of a KII 35mm transparency shot in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1980. The light on the hats just seems to transcend everything else, whilst shadow detail is largely retained.

excellent image handled well, maintaining shadow detail without blowing the highlights.
I have also enjoyed your documentary "Bowery" series.
Good work here Bob.

Regards David.
