Taken on the 06/01/2009, shot using a Nikon D80 and a Nikon 50mm f1.4 AF-D. The location was Putney High Street, in South West London, at the bus stop outside Boots store. There was an elderly woman sitting down at the bus stop and even though the weather was bitter cold she had a distinctive smile and gaze, she looked content. I had bought my camera with me because I was intending to try some street photography, but I chose to simply ask her if I could take a picture of her. The light was rays of sunlight peaking through the buildings behind and shining through the windows pane of the bus shelter. She thanked me after I took the photo, thanked me for noticing her.
This was shot simply in JPEG, not RAW, using custom settings. The original shot included her shoulders and this was a large crop and rotate job. All editing was carried out in Adobe Photoshop CS3.
