for Strangers –
Here are two shots with original image, and after I have finished playing with it in Sagelight. Both are not just about people not being acquainted with each other but about a lack of understanding, sensitivity or knowledge of other cultures in a world that has grown so much smaller than it once was.
Before DSCN1907 -what interested me about the image was the ethnic diversity and how the two pedestrians are looking straight ahead seemingly unaware of each other.
After DSCN1907 – so I cropped and eliminated whatever I found distracting and tried to accentuate the lack of interaction between the three individuals.
Before DSCN2621 – again, the ethnic diversity
After DSCN2621 – I used similar techniques to highlight the isolation of the woman in the foreground.
