Fireperson On Parade

Today’s post in another from the City of Baytown Christmas Parade. I like the photo because of the, to me anyway, surprise factor. Even in a parade you expect to see a big burly fireman hanging on the side of the fire truck, not an attractive blonde female.

Great shot Larry!

I like the composition a lot. I think the shot could be improved if you did a curves or brightness adjustment layer to brighten the subject (use a layer mask and leave the background as is) to make her pop from the photo a little more.
