About the Image(s)

The HonFest is an annual festival held in Baltimore, MD. Honfest takes its name from the word "hon" which is short for "honey", a term of endearment and greeting often used in Baltimorese. Its an opportunity for young and old to dress up like a "hon". Its very popular with lots to see, entertainment and food! I have several images but, in my opinion, this one epitomized the festival.

So cute. Nice image. sharp - one recommendation is to get the black square out of the upper right corner.   Posted: 08/10/2019 13:21:40

Cute. And as Bev mentioned, sharp. There are distractions along the right edge, including the black square Bev mentioned. They don't bother me, as we are about street photography here, but they could be cleaned up if you wanted to enter this in a contest.   Posted: 08/11/2019 12:41:48

Adorable street portrait! I looks to me that you were kind of restricted by the other people in the background. I'm wondering what this would look like if you included more of the scene.   Posted: 08/14/2019 16:14:05

This kid is simply TOO CUTE! Great color and clarity. I think if you'd have cropped out the top portion to get rid of the black block on the right, the image would be much better. Wish you had gotten down to her level before pushing the shutter button.   Posted: 08/18/2019 21:16:19

I love this image. Kids make the best street photography subjects and she is adorable. I wouldn't crop anymore but the distractions would be easy to remove with Photoshop content aware. I don't find that Lightroom removes large objects very well.   Posted: 08/19/2019 09:25:17
