Barcelona Street Artists: Cleopatra in a Trance

Barcelona Street Artists: Cleopatra in a Trance
© All Rights Reserved

You have seen her before on this site. This time I managed to come up closer to Cleopatra to take a good look at those bracelets, those rings and the pearl tiara with the lethal asp. Apparently she is still in a trance induced by the dreadful bite although she is quite aware of the noise of those coins falling in a can at her feet. As you can see she is sitting on a chair which is quite more comfortable than standing still like many of the human statues along Las Ramblas: wise girl indeed!

Great shot, Carlos. Was it shot in manual? What was the aperture value? I love photos with clear focus on the object and blur background.

-Ha that's funny. Maybe for some extra fee you could tickle her. Thanks mimmu
-Jas, thanks to your question I have just realized that I overlooked keeping the exif when I postprocessed the image with PS CS2. Lately I upload them to Flickr and I try to respect the exif info so it appears in the properties section. This time as it was late maybe I saved it as 16 bit tiff file first instead of 8 bit before converting it to jpeg thus losing the exif (long story I know). I will recover that for u from NEF file (RAW). For focus and blur in the background I must have used something under f/5 but besides that a custom vignette action has been applied with some extra blur on corners.
