St. Patrick’s Day Photographers

I’ve noticed more and more people with cameras at major public events. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception and I made this shot as we walked toward St. Patrick’s Street in Cork, unfortunately too late for the parade, but we had enjoyed a good meal so I wasn’t too bothered!

How many photographers can you see in this image? I count seven, maybe eight.

I can’t remember how I got this effect. Normally I’ll make a .xcf copy of the image but it’s not there this time. Ooops.

    Oh man, go easy with the unsharp mask! :)

    It wasn’t unsharp mask. Ah, I just found what I did – I copied the background layer and ran the “Retinex” filter on it before combining that layer with the background one using a not-normal layer mode and then turning it b/w using the channel mixer.

    Unsharp mask was applied at the end but only in the usual proportions! :)
