Photographer's Note

A young girl applies make-up in preparation for her role in an opera to honor the festival of hungry ghosts.


The re-post of this picture was scaned from the neg (where the original was scanned from a print). I have toned down the colour, to produce more balance and harmony amongst what were riotous tones. As this was taken on zoom under bad lighting conditions, there was some camera shake, that I have combatted by cloning out the blurring along the edge of her profile, leaving it maybe a little too crispy. Also brought out the white in her eye using dodge tool. Much happier with this crop as it brings out the relationship between the girl and the mirror much more efectivly.
