Tubusereia Cricket

One of the probs taking a portrait here is the whole balance between dark skin tones and overcast skies.... black t-shirts and shorts don't help the equation and when I took this shot, I thought "that's crap" because this young fella just became a silhouette.

I messed around with the shot because I liked the pose, the 'tude and the totally washed out sky. Took out the saturation to really alienate the grass and cranked the reds to get that weird orange seed heads and soil.

I kinda like it. Dude.

Light balance is now super good. Love this kiddle.
