I love Ciutadella in the early evening. With the exception of the Fiesta (see yesterday's upload) there is usually an air about the place that encourages you to feel relaxed - its almost like peace via osmosis.
The market place is wonderful and sadly I didn't get to capture it as I wanted to (perhaps one day I'll go back and have another crack). However, on my last trip I did get this as I walked past the fish market stalls (the patterned building to the left). Several kids were racing and running about on the far side of the building - they were oblivious to my presence (they were having so much fun!). So here is my attempt at a lensbaby action shot - and its an image I feel quite proud of (anyone who has used a lensbaby will understand why). Sadly, other than composition I feel this was more good luck than good judgement!
Post processing was done in LR initially, but the saturation was adjusted by using SilverEffex and adding various control points for selective colouring.
Don't be shy - let me know what you think. Good or bad.
