Festival Singers

I was going back through the photos from my most recent trip to the Texas Renaissance Festival and found this photo of a group of singers. In spite of a couple of technical flaws I like the way it turned out.

Title: "Festival Singers"

Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
Post-processing: Photoshop CS3 > Duplicate Background > Topaz Adjust "Spicify" preset > High Pass Sharpening > Red Paw Media Beautifier > Merge Visable to New Layer > Distort Lens Correction Vignette

Mr. B,

I really like how you finished this one. It gives it a little different look but then not too far out there. Then I began to think how would Craig Tanner discuss this?

"In a perfect world, Barry, who was really great to have at our seminar in Savannah, would have moved a little so that the area on the left would night be so different than any other part of the image. Now, if you would not be opposed to changing the editorial content of the image I would copy the ivy on the right and put it on the left. That would tone down the left side a little. I really like this image and what Barry has done with it."

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your comments Larry and Patrick!

Patrick - I had the same exact idea for perfect world improvements! :-) At posting time though I was running short of time and energy (not a good excuse I know). I'll fix it and replace the photo with a corrected version some time today!

Thanks agian for your feedback!
