Galveston Photo Walk #3

Here's another photo from the Galveston Photo Walk. This one was taken along Postoffice Street near 23rd Street, towards the end of our walk. We happen to meet a young woman named Cate who had this great hat, so we asked to photograph her. The background here was pretty awful -- benches, umbrellas, etc. So I simplified it with some cloning and patching in Photoshop, then used Nik Color Efex to add some contrast and glamour glow. We weren't really equipped for portraits, so used my pop-up flash for some fill. I've done this a few times before, and besides the catchlight being dead center in the pupil, it's really not as bad a quality of light as you'd think. I think the compression with a long focal length helps negate the on-camera flash, almost makes it ring-flash like. 1/60 sec at f/9, 105mm, ISO200.
