Standing out!

Something from Portobello market on my outing with Skee (who has been posting some shots on his blog today) and Deji. Since I've not had many abstract photos I thought I'd look for a few this time. I really like this shot. I think purely because the original really looked very plain. I'm experimenting with a new technique in sepia conversion in Capture One Pro and I'm very happy with the results here.

Nice shot. Lovely details.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Josef
very nice smile and i do recall u taking this, though quite can't remember exactly when.
Jide Alakija: It didn't look nice when I was taking it.
lovely light work especially since the middle umbrella is startiling but not icongruous in an ugly way by being so bright...
Jide Alakija: Thanks Sam.
