Web Designer Ramblings - Photo Of The Day
Here is the result of a photo opportunity I was privileged to witness in Santa Fe, New Mexico this past week. It lasted just a few seconds! This Native American woman was standing at an outdoor vendors stand, late in the afternoon. Upon seeing her, I instantly realized that the deeply shadowed character lines of her face and the warm colors of the late day sun made for a dramatic portrait. She held this pose for just a few seconds, lost in thought, then was suddenly called away. However, I think the portait captured is priceless! This is indeed one of my favorite photos of the year.
The photo was taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ20 digital camera. The long telephoto lens and fast focus of this camera made this shot possible! I added a slight "brush effect" in Photoshop and adjusted the curves slightly. No other adjustments were made.
