Street Image : Ladies of Colour…

by on Feb.28, 2011, under Life, Photography, Street

I was walking along George St in the city (Sydney) around lunchtime when I saw these two ladies wearing brightly coloured summer dresses waiting at the intersection to cross amidst a sea of drab whites, blacks and greys (mostly people wearing business clothes). As we were crossing I got a lovely flick of the hair and here we are.

I used the local adjustment brush in Adobe Lightroom to post process the image as you see it here – I firstly used a large hard brush over the whole image to reduced the Saturation, Clarity and Sharpness all to -100 and I then used the Erase brush with Auto Mask to “paint” the two women back in and then touched up the edges a little.
