Photo Of The Day #5

Today we have a look at a cosplay captured by Pedro Hamers during Phantasium 2012.

The lighting conditions weren’t what we wished for as you can see in the settings below. Anyway, you just have to make it work and believe me: automatic mode will take you nowhere.

Even though we both took a couple of shots of this red eyed (contacts) girl I think that Pedro’s image here is the most print worthy of them all. The two things I like the most about this shot is the fact that Pedro managed to get a good spot to take his image from and the post processing he did on it.

The split toning gives a kind of evil sweet or sweet evil touch to it. Very well done!
