Meat for sale

By tom_earwaker
Another one from Mong Kok market in Hong Kong. I liked the way the meat was hanging all around her and the strong red/pink colours. I've darkened a few distracting bright areas, lightened the woman and tweaked the colour balance (was very yellow). Will upload the original as a mod.
Thanks in advance for any feedback Smile

What a super image Tom. It captures the wonderful colour and shine of the meat.

Hope you like the mod.

Another nice shot. Lots of BBQ pork and Peking Duck.

A little lighter with a touch of contrast helps?

I like the formality of the composition - surrounding the subject with the product, neatly arranged. The perfect verticals are pleasing, and complete the effect.

A fraction more light on the face would be good. Sometimes, it's obvious that a slight tilt or turn will get rid of shadows, but flash would kill the mood completely.

Thanks everyone, agree about light on the face and that extra contrast realy helps.

It is potentially a fine image but, enlarged, the face is quite soft. would have been at 800 or even 1600 here to get the shutter speed up. I suspect a little subject movement.
