Despite overexposing this one by one stop (as you'll see if you take a look at the original) it's a truly dreadful exposure and I don't know what possessed me to shoot it this way. That said, I doubt I'll bump into this lady again, and I couldn't resist her smile, so decided it was worth going the extra step in Photoshop to create an image that did her more credit. I'm not sure it's ended up quite where I wanted but it's definitely a marked improvement on my lacklustre original :-)
