Oslo street photography
I also like very much your eye for the shot but I also think it is all a bit to much high key (slightly over exposed) as the poster above said. I am using a color managed profiled monitor here.
Thank you Brian, and the rest of you, for your feedback.
I looked at again after your post, and the other posts, who said it came out a bit too bright. And, you know what, I agree now. I had the camera at aperture priority at f/8. It seems now when I look at the file that I had the EV comp dial at +1 on the camera. That was no accident, I had used +1 right before this shot. But it all happened so fast, with the little girl in the colorfull dress reaching out, I forgot to change it back.
About the colors that someone in an earlier post said was nice, thanks. Anyway, this is not out of camera JPG, but I shot in raw, and processed it with Lightroom 4.4 and there I used the Kodak Portra 400vc profile from VSCO film pack 2. And that's all I did. Looking at it now, I could have lowered the exposure and highlights a bit in Lightroom.
