Help me choose ! . . . . . 5 images
Feb 7, 2013

I photographed Gladys early one morning as I was walking around the small village of Hofmeyer in the Karoo region of South Africa.  (In December last year my wife and I went on a photographic journey for about 4 days. Hofmeyer was our 2nd stop. ) I asked if I could take her photograph and took about 10 images in 2 minutes. I think she was a bit shy that I had caught her not quite appropriately dressed, because she asked her son to bring her a jersey. She was sitting on her 'stoep' or veranda in full view of the passing parade so I am not too concerned showing her like that... She is having the standard South African breakfast of 'oats pap' or oats porridge...and it almost looks like she has some traditional marking or 'paint' on her face or maybe it was just a face mask....

So what do you think, which one works best if at all? I include a sepia rendering, but somehow I think I prefer the colour.

Processed in LR4 and Nik Silver Efex2. More of my images of Hofmeyer here at...http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/
