I'm really happy with a lot of the pictures I took at the Winnipeg International Children's Festival on Friday. I'm a bit hesitant to post most of the images though, since they are primarily of kids and many of them are easy to recognize. I have a few that are both cool and safe to use though, including this one. Amazingly enough, I didn't have to manipulate the file to get the surreal reds; I did my usual workflow (levels, contrast curve, sharpening) but the image is essentially left as captured. I think I got just the timing, with the sun starting to break through cloud cover, plus just the right angle over the material of the costume.
