Unexpected guest



I had my camera on a tripod and was trying to get a wide angle night photo of a restaurant that I really liked. Then this little girl popped out of nowhere and I just couldn't miss such an opportunity, zoomed in a bit, switched to iso 1600 and hoped she won't move. Surprisingly she stood still long enough for me to take the photo :) but flew almost instantly when I tried taking a second one.

Given that deviantart is a global community I'd really wish someone knows this girl, sees this photo and contacts me so I can send this photo to her parents

Btw there's a cat in the photo. Can you spot it? :)

I think I took about 2 to 3 hours on postwork for this photograph. the high iso and low light were demanding enough, and so was the busy background, the shallow depth of field is simulated in photoshop through masking the z-depth of each element that composes the image and then applying lens blur.
