For this entrepreneur, probably a foot pump and sitting on a sidestreet all day to hawk his inflated goods. Coney Island, Brooklyn.

I love the blues and yellows in the balloons and on the building. Great work.

Thanks for looking and for the comments all! PP is the usual desat and D & B.

Masse, good eye, that's what I was going for in this pic.

Hey there BB,

Sorry we haven't hooked up. My daughter's been in Brooklyn all summer but things have been busy and we haven't visited recently.

You mention you did the normal desaturation and d&B, but you really seem to work magic. I'd love to see a before and after sometime, with a description of the process. The clarity and tonal balance is incredible.

You really need to publish a book of your photography. It's very inspiring.

pmk

Hey Philip, sorry for the delay in answering, I am in the midst of traveling right now. Thanks for the comments, you are too kind. I hope to put up a tutorial soon, but I have no idea how to go about it. Perhaps if you swing by NYC again sometime I can show you the workflow on a laptop at a cafe or something. Cheers!

As they always are. Great shot, the blues and yellows that dominate the photo really make it pop. Not sure how I feel about the shadows though, they add a "mysterious" element, but also put the entrepreneur in darkness (which I guess is good metaphoricly). Either way, another awsome capture.
