This photo is largely "un-photoshoped." When I process a photo, I try not to take away the actual person, which is a temptation given all the things you can do with software.
This is one of my favorite portraits. I like the relaxed and natural look of my subject, Noel, but I also like the colors. The soft pink of the stone building, the pale blue of the t-shirt, and Noel's beautiful red hair go very well together.
