26.2.07 Chris Spracklen

A chance encounter! (18481)

N.E.C., Birmingham

This young lady was sat patiently waiting to pose for a bunch of visitors to the 2007 'Focus on Imaging' show at the N.E.C. as I was strollin' by. I just popped up the flash, set the dial to 'auto', and snapped!

P.S. As of 1/8/11 this image has been slightly reprocessed, taking out some of the orange tones in the young lady's skin and slightly decreasing the saturation generally.

other sizes: small medium large original

Excellent result and I am envious of the technical work that went into this Cris. :^)
It shows what can happen when one has "the" eye for photography. Well done.

Excellent portrait. Hard to believe you did that in auto mode with the built in flash.
