Sparkling Temptation

Sparkling Temptation

Another from an evening spent at the lake, this one using a narrow aperture (f22 from memory) to create the sparkling/flare effect that surrounded Chaz as she tempted Tony’s dog Jo-ji.

I spent a lot of time on this trying to find the best toning and in the end left it straight black and white. Other processing involved Rotate, Crop, Curves, Levels, Dodge/Burn, USM and Vignette.
