|Hello Bob thanks for your interest, your comments and your Workshop. Its so long since I took, edited and originally published this picture, that all I can recall is that I wanted to make the Lady on the steps, and her shadow in the strong sunlight, stand out amongst the lovely architecture, as the main point of interest. I have never used a graduation before or since, so I accept that to apply it here was probably not the best idea. The original (Untreated) picture was/is ,I think, better balanced with regard to exposure.
