Photographer's Note

Remember my earlier post "Innocent Charm" (http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/Philippines/photo19398.htm)? Well, that's not the only shot I took of her. I consider this picture as taken in Boracay, Philippines, but "made" in TE. I didn't like the colored version of this particular shot because the green reflection of the canvas dominated the face. After looking at some pictures in TE (Greg's, Martin's, Dopiro's, etc.) I decided to go back to my old CD-stored files and find what I can salvage. And this one comes on top of the list. I love everything about this shot except the colours so why not change it into sepia? Thank you guys for helping me "make" this shot. Maybe you can give me some suggestions on how to make this picture give justice to my beautiful subject. And by the way, I added some noise, too.

Anyway, this girl is a daughter of a Boracay artist. She is actually a walking advertisement of the father as the latter is also into the business of braiding, henna tattooing, and trinket-making.

(Converted to sepia, sharpened and adjust brightness and contrast. also added very minimal noise)
