My first colorization

I came across this vintage photo of a woman with extraordinary hair. It was ideal as a cover image for my book Leah And Her Twelve Brothers, and better still once colorized with pixlr.

Close to a kestrel


Another view of a kestrel on Hampstead Heath

Technical note: this was not done with a telescopic lens. It was shot with a 50mm lens on a slow film (100 iso) then scanned to high res, blown up and cropped. Hence the detail.
