Street Photography And The Teton County Fair II

Day two Teton Fair 10 (1 of 1)

Did we mention there was a rodeo?  So of course there were rodeo princesses.

And did we mention there was pig wrestling? Who even knew such an event existed?

But on a beautiful evening in the Tetons, the Teton County Fair rolled along for a second day, and provided more opportunities for wandering with a camera.

Every once in a while you would find someone surprised to be photographed.

But for as many people as there were surprised, there were others whom, one suspects, enjoyed being part of the drama.

It was a pretty great party.

And as evening fell, the lighted byways of the fair made it seem as if the party would go late into the night.

    I like the photograph. But it looks unnatural, like a Thomas Hart Benton painting. Perhaps it is HDR.

    Not HDR. Everything handheld.

    Thanks, no, I got it. Last photo, shot handheld at ISO 640, processed in LR5, then with selective adjustments in Nik Veveza. There was a lot of noise reduction, but I think pretty limited extra saturation other than the Punch preset in LR5. I like shots that are saturated, and it sounds like this is too saturated for your tastes.

  4. johnbuckley100 Says:

    Actually, I was wrong. That image was only processed in LR5. Exposure was increased 0.75. Highlights were brought down. Yes, preset Punch. Everything else was reducing noise.

    I love the fact you think it was HDR! Shows what kind of files the M-240 gives you to work with.
