Making Up for the New Year
Very well spotted Ruud. Is there a specific reason why it is so blue?
It really brings out the cold mood!
I never see this here, either. Too hot and humid and I have yet to see a bus stop - they stop anywhere and often without any warning at all. Defensive driving is very important in Philippines.
I like the all cool blue and the bus stop shelter frames her nicely.
PS: She's not waiting for a bus - she's waiting for her chauffeur in the Rolls-Royce.

Ha! She looks like she is in her own dressing room "making up her face!" Good find Ruud, and I love the blue tones! Well done...
This could have been a nice daily life capture, unfortunatly the focus is way too soft. Maybe you should try sharpening it a bit but I think the blur is due to some motion blur.
And this blue colorcast does flatten the contrast of the picture. You could fix this by correctin the levels. You need to set a true "white" as there is none on this picture (all the white are pale blue). And then reduce the blue colorcast left in the midtones using the curves in the blue channel.

I like the blue monochromatic color. A well seen grooming shot. Excellent pov & sharpness. Congratulations!

love the color and the frame is wonderful it all has a winterish color to it. Like the woman doing her thing totally oblivious of what is going on around her.
