I don't specially go to Orchard Road, in case you're wondering. I send my daughter to a class there, and usually have about an hour to hang around before bringing her home after that. I have no complaints about this arrangement. It's usually one of the best places to shoot people.

I was walking along happily when I came upon a crowd. Ahhh... street performers! Out came my camera...

I was there around 2:30pm, after finishing macro shots in BG. As I was moving to some other place, didn't stay long. Captured this little audience's expression. I found I am still too shy to shoot at public. In many cases I had shaky hand coz a bit nervous.

I think it's the govt. who bring them in from china to perform here. I also heard that they have housing and food cater to them by the govt but part of what they've collected has to be donated to some organisation.

Did you apply level and other adjustments on the photo?
Trying to do half as good with my E-10, perhaps practice more, right? :bsmilie:

Yes, most of the pictures need levels adjustment to increase contrast, as well as a touch of unsharp mask.

Very simply, what I do is call up levels (Ctrl-L) then look at the histogram. If there's any flat areas at either extreme, I bring the pointer to the "edge of the mountain" so to speak. That usually improves the contrast tremendously.
