    She definitely doesn't just want to do the bare minimum – scottbb Jun 22 at 23:07

    @scottbb I was a little nervous nobody would get the reference to a 22 year old cult classic :) – LightBender Jun 23 at 13:01

Sidewalk Sugar Skull

An artist is almost done painting a sugar skull design on the face of a girl as twilight falls over a Friday Night street festival in Decatur, AL on 15 July, 2016.

Sugar Skull

Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS @ 105mm, ISO 3200, 1/160, f/4.5

The primary light source was a small lamp over the artist's shoulder she uses to help see her client's faces as she works. There was also a mix of ambient twilight and streetlights. Exposing for the lamp effectively killed much of the ambient. Raw conversion and significant post-processing was done using Canon's Digital Photo Professional 4.

A formal sendoff

Taken opposite Royal Thai Police headquarters at Rama I road in Bangkok. The policeman pictured followed the car across the street. Presumably, there's a high-ranking officer onboard as it's a luxury car with the emergency lights on (barely visible on the grill of the car). After stopping traffic on both sides allowing the car to cross the street, he gave a sendoff salute (pictured).

The picture was taken in April of 2021. I used my Sony RX10M3 at f/4, 1/125 second exposure, 38.04mm and ISO500.
