Taken at Supanova 2009 Brisbane (anime/sci fi convention in Australia). Character Arachne from the anime Soul Eater. Impromptu pose from Meg. B/W treatment using Nik Software's excellent Silver efex. Some manual levels adjustment (lasso/levels), as well as cropping from the original image. Contrast adjustment as well, and also skin softening and noise reduction. Probably my favourite image of Meg from the weekend.
