Artist's Description

I cannot post this in the As Is group, because it is not completely raw, but there was only a little postprocessing done to this image, so it is pretty nearly just as it came off the camera. It was a surprise when I downloaded the images one day from my Kodak 10.2 mp digital SLR, but I realized how it had been done. The camera flash had been on the red eye setting, which flashes once to give eyes time to adjust to the light and then again as the picture clicks. Only, if you are not aware of the setting, you assume the picture was taken after the first flash, and you (or, more precisely, I) believe that it is safe to stop aiming at your subject. Since I keep the strap around my wrist, I am in the habit of letting the camera drop as soon as I shoot, so it was in the process of swinging through the air in its brief arc when the click went off with the second flash, and this is what I caught.
I would love to have been able to post it raw, but I can seldom resist tinkering, so I sharpened it and enhanced the saturation slightly. That’s all, other than bumping up the pixel resolution to conformance with RB recommendation.
There is something I like in the pattern and the soft pastel coloration here, very soothing to the eye. Would love to see it poster sized.
