Dickens on the Strand #3

Another photo from Dickens on the Strand -- same base image as the previous post. I've been experimenting with a trial version of Alien Skin Exposure 4 during the last week or two. All the edging, texture and toning was done in one pass through Exposure 4 and a resulting one layer in Photoshop.

Dickens on the Strand #2

Seems like in the past 3-4 years there are almost as many Steampunk characters as Victorian characters at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston. We photographed this woman as she waited for a group of friends. Initially we had her against a colorful palm tree, but as we were finishing up I decided to take a slightly different angle and position for a few final shots -- a bit lower and from an angle where a white tent would become my background. Don't know why, just wanted a neutral background. Toned and tinted in Photoshop to a more vintage look. 1/80 sec at f/5, 82mm.
