It’s Photo Friday!

I look at this woman and wonder…

Blended image of a Spanish woman walking to mass with a another photo of a candle offering table.  You put Euros in the machine and candles matching your offering amount will light up.  I don’t know the official name for this offering system, do you?

I thought it seemed like a humble scene so I partially desaturated the colors,  except for the lit candle on the table which represents her faith.  Adjusting colors in a photo can affect the “mood.”  Saturation will brighten and make the colors appear more vivid and you can play with desaturate to leave some of the color or convert to black and white.  I also burned in the edges which means I darkened them. If you add a warming filter to a slightly desaturated scene it will take on a “vintage look.”  Play around with the color adjustments and have some fun!
