The Week of the Hatter - Fifty Two Weeks #5

This week's image was shot while running an beginner's photowalk around Singapore, taking in the sights around Chinatown and ending at the Singapore River. It was a lot of fun and great to meet a ton of new photographers and help start them out in their new hobby!

Though I didn't have a huge amount of time to shoot myself, this guy was more than happy to pose - dressed in his finest Halloween costume he certainly looked fantastic!

I went for quite a contrasty, processed look to give it more punch & to emphasise the cartoon nature of his costume. One day I may back to incorporate this into a larger composite but for now, here he is! 

The image below is the original, unprocessed version showing the starting point. As you can see I haven't made too many changes. The most important is slightly changing the location of his pupils & whites of his eyes - for a split second he looked away so I needed to correct it in the final version.
