This week we visited the Christkindlmarkt in Denver.  This was a small Christmas market, done in the style of the great Christkindlmarkts in Germany.  The photo below is one of the Dicken’s Carolers, a singing group that performed that day.

I used Photoshop Elements to put the singer into a separate layer.  I then lowered the saturation and contrast of the background to make the singer stand out more.  Silver Efex Pro was used to convert the photo into the antique-style black-and-white shot you see above.

Technical Data:  Canon Rebel XTi; Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM; f/5.6 at 1/1000; ISO 200; Photoshop Elements, Silver Efex Pro.
