Simple picture of girl, handing out leaflets, chatting to guy in the street in Nottingham. This is a close crop of the original picture. My first try had the couple plus another person strolling in from the left, all full-length. It was a nice shot, but, as I was adjusting it, I focussed in to check detail and noticed that the two talking was a more interesting picture. Still needs better adjustment. I’ve decided to do a Photoshop challenge after the poem-a-day one is finished: setting myself to learn a bit more each day or couple of days and post the results.

The changes I made were to try and add eye movement. Main one was to brighten the girl and darken the guy more. I wanted to ensure she was the key focus and that the eye then looked for what she was doing. Not sure if this was successful or whether I should have evened out the tones more. Ah well, not a saleable image anyway; will leave it like this.
