You do have a knack for this sort of photo, Paul.

Re: Slumber & Boredom

I rather like this but must ask are the catch-lights added??

Hi Andy - no, nothing added, just some curve adjustments and a bit of cropping.

A very good candid Paul and the lighting is the icing on the cake.

Re: Slumber & Boredom

I really like this image and keep returning to look at it. I don't know why I haven't commented on it before. I love the composition and the muted, subtle colours including the green of the seat reflected under her leg. A very classy image with a languid feel to it, Paul.

Re: Slumber & Boredom

Thanks Ron. I took at an airport and what caught my eye was the girl crashed out face down. But I liked the reflection on the tiles and the vacant stare on her friend's face so thought I'd grab it and see if it worked. I was half expecting it to go into the delete bin on the first pass through the images from the card, but somewhat as you commented, the more I looked at it, the more I liked it. Thankfully, the Oly did a great job of exposure and I had to do very little to it in LR. Serendipity I guess!

I liked it the first time round.....the second look made me come back again and yes, it is a well composed image with a great title.
