I thought it was a little over-saturated myself. It might look better in grayscale as Bart suggested.

Have you tried cropping it so it cuts into the back/top of her head (to remove the basket)? I think this would help. I do like the HDR on this subject.

I think it would look okay with HDR, but not to this extent.

I'm not sure that I agree with the last two comments completely. I like the way HDR looks on older peoples skin, the background is too busy for B&W, if you converted it the woman would be lost amongst the crap behind her and make the whole image very flat. I think this photo could stand to be cropped a bit nicer but other than that I like it

I agree. HDR is definitely not suitable for this kind of shot. Im sure it was great before. GL !

Beautiful photograph with great detail and colour, but for this contest I would crop it just on the left side of the board.

avatar bartoszwozniak

Oh dear... I am very sorry to say this, but this HDR treatment is REALLY not doing the image justice. The photo is very flat, lacks contrast. I don't think that HDR suits portraiture.

I would love to see this image in normal color or maybe even in a high contrast Black and White.

Who said all blankets have to be quilts? Don't be silly. But, blankets traditionally are a lot thicker than this. This looks like the carts of scarves on the streets of New York city they sell for $5 a pop

They're handmade brick that look like they were relayed. It's not unheard of either. Sometimes old bricks are salvaged from old buildings just to get relaid into a wall. People like the old look. You probably could have got closer.

these are hand made engineering bricks, they are quite old, maybe around 80 or 90 years, maybe even a little more.
