Outstanding handheld capture and post-processing work, too, Martin!! Fabulous image!! :o) #1254791

Thanks very much.

I've posted the original for comparison. It was obvious that the original would need some post processing when I took the shot, I liked the composition and hoped that I'd be able to enhance it later. I surprised myself that with only a few tweaks the image could turn out so well. #8507370

This shot was taken handheld without flash during a religous procession during Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Alicante Spain.

The subject was frontlit by a large stage light and backlit by the ambient street lighting.

I reduce the exposure and converted to B&W in Lightroom.
