My life in a drawing

My life in a drawing

The Photo
This shot was taken a couple of days ago in Prague on Charles’ Bridge. There’s lots to capture in this city but that day I decided to shoot some street photography.
I had my 70-300 with me and I had the chance to capture this beautiful scene. There were lots of artists and lots of turists on the bridge and it was quite difficul for me to get close to the subject. I had to shoot quite a lot and finally I got this. It was something I always had in my mind.

Post Processing
I was really happy about the results and this helped me quite a lot to reduce my time on the computer. I used a UV filter to reduce some sunlight coming just in front of me.
Converted to black&white playing around with the channel mixer, added some contrast and removed some dust.
Workflow in Photoshop CS3, Lightroom and Camera Raw.
