Standing Woman

Standing Woman by Gaston Lachaise was modeled in 1932 and cast in bronze in 1955. It is a striking, dark, larger than life sculpture that captures an iconic female force. In a gallery crowded with other exhibits, this photo was shot at 1/45 with an ISO of 1100. Original Image:

The original image on the left  fully captures the blackness' of the work. The next step brightened the image ; but in the final adjustments in Silver Efex Pro 2, I brought it up even more to fully capture the inherent power. Final Image:   Normally, I would eliminate noise before sharpening but, in this instance, I sharpened first and then dialed it back. _KRK6432-Editedit7078
