You make me feel like a natural woman
You know how it is in flickr. Sometimes you feel compelled to juice up an image with all sorts of fancy post-processing techniques in order to get people to notice it. With this shot of a Duane Hansen sculpture, I experimented with a variety of high key, high contrast, soft focus, and Orton effects. But in the end, I decided to go with more gentle processing that made her look as real and natural as possible. Even a little bit more real, I think, than the actual sculpture looks. The larger view will give you a better idea of how amazing Hansen's work is.
