The Stranger That Caught Her Eye
Contest Number: 158 Contest Theme: Open Lens: Pentax-D FA* 50mm SDM AW Camera: Pentax K1 Mark II Shutter Speed: 1/6s Aperture: F5.6

All I can say is that this shot took a while to get :-)

So, it was taken handheld at night by shooting at a hair salon window. The lady you see in this photograph is on a giant poster inside the hair salon and the car passing by is a reflection off the main road. I wanted to get a shot that made a natural reflection composite photograph whereby her eye is rounded off by a car window.

Focal Length: 50mm
Aperture: 5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/6s
ISO: 1600

PP work: zero saturation on everything other than red, yellow and orange. Increase in contrast and a bit in shadows and added a bit of grain for effect.

Thank you for looking at my work.

Much love
