Yesterday I gave a Composition in the Field class in the San Francisco Chinatown. I am an instructor at the Digital Photo Academy. We first went to a Leica camera store located just next to the Dragon's Gate. Indoor I explained the difference between ISO 100 and a high ISO 16,000. We left the store with my camera still set to the high ISO. Just as we left, a Chinese woman walked by with an umbrella. Perfect. I pointed my camera at the passerby - no time to adjust the camera settings. I got a single shot, way too high ISO, thus way overexposed and very grainy. I was surprised that HDR processing from the RAW file could recover quite a bit. The colors were washed out and a bit off in the background, so I partially desaturated the image, which also has the effect that the eyes of the observer are drawn to the woman with umbrella.

I processed a balanced HDR photo from a RAW exposure, carefully adjusted the curves and color balance, and partially desaturated the image. I welcome and appreciate your critical feedback.
