-Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

 

I took this photo with the concept of contrast in mind. It's interesting seeing what priorities different locals will have. Do they worry about their helmet and how freaking sweet they look wearing them? Or do they focus on day to day necessities?

 

I cropped this picture to about 1/3 the size of the original. The original photo wasn't capturing the attention immediately, so I focused on what was important, while still trying to fill up the frame. The warmth was increased a decent amount because the coolness wasn't working for me too well. Ya, too cool.

I added in the red line for kicks and after trying a few different line concepts. This one seemed to randomly work the best, although it's fairly obvious it was my first attempt at something like this. I think that a 10" monitor, a key pad which shook the pointer on its own, and a bit of impatience were the key factors of a few visual errors here. I'll correct it when I have more than 30 minutes to kick around.
