This one was taken a few minutes before my last post and is a shot of Harmony (one of Rhowan's younger sisters) sporting her new hat. Unlike the shot of Rhowan though I decided to leave this one in colour, and almost posted the straight shot (linked below):
As you can see, it's a fairly pleasant shot. In this instance though, more for practice than any pressing aesthetic reason, I decided to switch to processing in LAB Color mode rather than RGB. If you're not familiar with LAB Color mode I'd definitely suggest you give it a try, not least because it gives you an amazing amount of control, especially in terms of modifying colour. If you're interested, the techniques I used for this image are covered in the first and second parts of my LAB Color mode tutorials linked below:
As always, let me know what you think.
