01-10 Copper




















He was just standing there, next to the "silencer" sign, which sounds nasty and ominous but in fact refers to a shop that does muffler service. Certainly cheaper than Meineke, or whatever that shop in the US is called.
Taken from inside a moving vehicle, and I had to bump up the sharpening quite a bit to get the face in reasonable order. The coloring...well, chalk it up to Colombo. I've got this theory that left standing outdoors long enough, anything of any color will turn this charming brown-green tinge. The exhaust from Colombo's never-before-gone-through-emissions-testing thousands of buses alone would be enough to turn everything grimey.

I love the tone and composition of this shot. What are you using to get the colour tone to your shots that you have? I really like it. Almost bronze like. Very very nice.
