Re: Khalsa Cotton Candy

yes, actually i do think that's a bit better. the first version is more stylized, obviously, and gives the impression of something like color neg lo-fi instamatic aesthetic, the deliberateness of which is potentially a positive (if that does something useful for you artistically). but it is difficult to see the cotton candy; without the title i don't know that i would have figured it out, and even with the title i don't think i realized the woman is also holding (blue) candy cotton.

the second version still seems a bit overexposed to me (i like to hold highlights as much as possible, perhaps too much for some tastes) but permits me to see much more of what is happening in the photo. it also feels more engaged with the scene to me, instead of cut off from it by virtue of a stylistic veil. (to some small extent.)

thanks for taking the time to experiment with the picture--
