Story behind the photograph
This stunning blond girl zoomed past me while I was on my way back to work from lunch. She was in an obvious hurry as her over exaggerated hand movements indicate. As I took the photo I realised I’ve captured it in an exact moment when her hand aligned with the leg of the man in the background. I looks like she is about to trip him – just a perspective based visual humour. This photograph required a bit of post processing: firstly I did not have my Canon 580EX flash with me and could not use fill in light. As a result the girl, which was walking with the sun, turned out too dark in comparison to the scene. I’ve used a rarely used “Equalise” function in Adobe Photoshop to increase the brightness. Remaining processing was limited to a simple black and white conversion and some minor sharpening.
