Working the flower beds

La Fortuna is a cute little town near the Arenal Volcano, north of San Jose, in Costa Rica. They have a great city square with a church, a view of the volcano, and beautiful flower beds.

This man was out tending the beds on a particularly warm day. The photo is busy, but so is the park.

He was in his own little world.

I like how the picture is divided up though. There’s nothing going on in front of him. After him comes the barrier of flowers and then all the activity.

The original:

The man was a little too shadowed so I brightened him. I also increased the sharpness and clarity on him. The lady behind him has a distracting blue shirt on, so I decreased the saturation on her.
