A whiff of the olden days; Omotesando, Tokyo

I got a nice shot of a woman in Omotesando on Monday, wearing a kimono and with a parasaol. The background was not great and the colours too contrasty in the strong sunlight.

So, a little bit of Photoshop and we have something quite different. This is uncropped from the original.

Nikon D300

Nikkor 135mm f/2 DC

Black and white/toned effect in Photoshop, with edges faded like an old glass plate. Then faded back to let some of the colour through.
