About the Image(s)

I took this picture at the NJ Fair where participants were asked to dress up for that day.
I caught this fey wandering the shops and enjoyed the various splashes of color.

Hi Orest, I like your image, I think you caught the woman at a good time. I also think the crowd action adds to the image, I really like how the out of focus people in the foreground frame the woman. Nicely done.   Posted: 06/06/2020 17:07:15

Hi Orest, nice capture. The passing woman adds dynamism neatly framed by the other people. However, there seems to be a slightly blue colour cast (easily fixed) and it looks to me that you have applied a blur to the foreground people in post processing (apologies if I am wrong), and to me the result seems slightly artefactual. There are things that look to be at similar distances from the camera but which vary in degree of blur - for example between the leftmost man and the girl nearer and to the right (both looking equally blurred despite being different distances from camera), there is some stuff that seems less blurred than the people it is between. If you set up a mask on a duplicate layer in PS, with different levels of gray representing different distances, then the FIlter/Blur/Lens Blur can make a very convincing blur based on the grah/distance in the mask. Does that make sense? let me know if you would like more detailed instructions.   Posted: 06/10/2020 03:31:40

Hello Orest, I love the capture of the subject and the focus. The blue around her adds a great affect.   Posted: 06/10/2020 21:30:50
