Taken at the Winter Magic Festival 09 in Katoomba, this guy was taking a break from the hectic pace of the coffee stand he was working on.

Canon 350D
1/125 sec
f/4
ISO 400
levels adjusted
B&W layer with opacity adjusted
high pass sharpening
distracting objects removed (yep… trying to learn the wonders of photoshop…lol!).

I originally liked the full colour version… but after mucking around with the B&W I decided I was quite partial to this version with reduced colour….

  • Hey Richard…. thanks for the comment! As for standard dress… well it is in Katoomba but not in Jervis Bay!! LOL!! : )) You could be forgiven for thinking I still live in Katoomba I guess, going by the amount of stuff I do of it!! I visit quite regularly but these days I live by the sea…… : ))
