On a cold bench

Posted by
Albert (Sweden, living in Mechelen, Belgium) on 12 January 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

St Petersburg, Mikhailovskij park. It was not supposed to be a portrait from start, but in the end I cropped it relatively tight which made the photo a bit more portrait like. (Tonemapped as usual, 3 shots for the HDR.)

Canon EOS 40D 1/6 second F/13.0 ISO 200 19 mm

As always Albert, nice shot. The portrait gives it some depth as well as the trail going around the corner. Well done..

A great composition to start with Albert, so the foundation cannot cause you any trouble. Wonderful processing as usual.

I'm impressed, superb process (i don't do any except tones ;) and the result is just gorgeous, love the attitude (a lot of romantism in her expectation) and tones - and what a lovely place & trees

I see she is very carefully sitting on her coat tail! Great detail here, nice shadowing.

A beautiful composition of contrasts seen here. I love the texture you've captured in the bark of the trees. Great processing!
