Forgotten Roman Goddess #1
Sitting in a quiet corner of a museum, a clearly once proud goddess's timeless marble beauty has seen some rough centuries as her divinity faded and was eventually forgotten. I played some impressionist camera tricks here, like tilting the camera to suggest a bowed head and adjusting contrast to emphasize texture and make the watchful eye go dark.
Technical: Nikon D700, AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4, ISO 800, f/2.0 @ 1/40s, handheld. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.5 to adjust color, contrast, crop and apply a preset that I think makes old marble glow when printed on Epson Exhibition Rag paper.
