This was taken tonight around 5:45 p.m., while getting ready for Halloween festivities. The gown was $3.95 at the local thrift store.
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 32mm, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/60s and aperture f/5.6. Used a remote flash to brighten the face a bit. Basic curves adjustment for contrast & saturation; color balancing for tone.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
Wonderful shot! Great tones and her expression and "costume" really works with the rest
A really most beautiful photo. Great atmosphere and expression!
Just one word... SINISTER.. sets the appropriate mood for halloween!
This is beautifully composed. I love the moon in the pnoto. The lighting is perfect.
It doesn't scream Halloween, but you feel the creeping night in her blank expression, dark features, and vintage gown . The setting is perfect, and fits the feel of a colonial-era witch or vampire story, with a little pagan earth worship thrown-in.
$3.95 bought you an invaluable photograph. the dark atmosphere is just right for halloween!
I'd happily give her candy if she came to my door. I like the sinister feel to this - perfect for Halloween.
Seems a wee flat and underexposed.. Even with a simple "Auto Contrast" adjustment things become more alive: http://osenoa.com/client_data/media/October3006.jpg
Lovely portrait, the expression and composition is great, though to me it screams "The Village" not "Happy Halloween" but that was an okay movie, so it's all good :P
Interesting shot, has a very old feel to it! I like it.
This looks like a difficult shot. The forground and girl's face are well lit without contrasting the low-light conditions. Her eyes are striking.
There is a little halo around head´s girl. I think you must working at the PS.
Beautiful shot Kathleen, very well executed under tough shooting conditions. She does look quite sinister.
Halloween...? well, it also looks very nostalgic to me. Lovely basic colors in this one!
update: I missed the moon (shame on me). So, Halloween it is!
the light is incredible, it sure turned out well
That's the most beautiful Halloween dress ever!
