This is a shot of one of the many street performers in Las Ramblas, Barcelona, and I initially thought that the shots I'd taken of this woman probably wouldn't work out. If you take a look at the straight shot you'll see why (processed with the default settings in ACR):
So, given that the straight shot wasn't up to much, I decided to try a pseudo-HDR version (tone mapping a single RAW file using Photomatix Pro). As I hope you'll agree, this version is a big improvement.
One of the witches from Oz? LOL!!! She is beautiful. I love this shot! Great capture!
Nice makeup, and I like the cool color tone!
So blue ! I like it !
It is a great catch and a well done makeup. Just love the pale pink touch in the middle of this beautiful bluish girl! well done

Excellent! Great moment!

lot of thigs tolearn right here ...
Such great animation and minimal colour. The blue hair and eye makeup reminds me a character from Les Miserables. Her expression is somewhere between insanity and distress, or perhaps that is one in the same.
This truly is an amazing image. Bravo!
The tonal treatment and blue choice helped to emphasize her face. I suppose she is impersonating the corpse bride by Tim Burton. I have been checking your Barcelona series. I like it. It is very interesting to have our city been snapped by a different eye.
