Photo, photoshop

This is not kitsch

Or, to be honest, I should be careful of defining good and bad taste regarding photography. Maybe I simply should say: “I like this image”. A lady promoting a theater in Berlin. Snapped at the right moment.

And if that HDR method tend to add slightly too much of an artificial effect this image didn’t pass through without some photoshopping either. A little cropping. Some unsharp mask. Removing some colours. Fixing the burned out white fur. Making her eye slightly more blue… Here’s the original:

Canon 400D, Canon 70-200 f4 L IS @ 200mm

And if you want to know more about kitsch. Wikipedia to the rescue.
