Nail Varnish       ©2014 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       5th place, 113 points
1/40s, f5, ISO 500, 64mm, Aperture Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: PSE11: crop, cloning out background marks, denoise, high pass sharpening       Extra Info: I'd failed to get a decent picture of a string quartet busking, so asked them afterwards for a shot - the violinist agreed, but they were rushing to pack away their instruments in order to clear the pitch for someone else, so this was a grabbed snapshot, but I liked the way she held the bow, and her chipped nail varnish

    Thanks for all the positive feedback and votes... Again this scored higher than I expected... I'll have to go back to the busker and drop in another thank you donation to her...!

    Very nice finding and the nails make it even more interesting.

    I love contrasts, and the juxtaposition of chipped nail polish with a classical musical instrument is just such an incongruity. Great capture - well taken and exposed, and I love the crop

    Great rhythm, and the chipped nails do it for me.

    I like the shot and the play on varnish, both hands and violin. Both somewhat aged.

    Composition and exposure are excellent, too bad about the chipped nails which draw attention and detract from the overall image. Nice neutral background. Good for a street grab.

    the buskers always seem to be on the move. i like the spontaneity of the shot and the nail polish or lack of it works
