Festival faces

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 13 July 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

More faces shot during the build up to the South Tyneside Summer Festival opening parade last Saturday. I found these guys in Claypath Lane, South Shields as the parade participants were being guided into their places.

I'm afraid that the masking is a bit sloppy and "slap dash" in this picture, I was in too much of a hurry to get it done on the laptop, it looks far worse now that I see it on my normal monitor - my apologies.

Hey let me know if you are getting bored with this series of shots, I've plenty more to offer if you want them!

The good news is that I have my PC back here with one new back up drive in it, a formatted empty fresh drive to use as a scratch disc for Photoshop, and my C drive is working as well as ever! So good to be able to view and edit my pictures on this 22 inch wide screen monitor (calibrated) and in the colours that I prefer :-)

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Even though I may not be able to visit or respond daily, I always welcome your comments or critiques.
