A casual approach to catering for the privileged crowd at the races back in the day. Its rather more like a family picnic than the commercial affair you’d expect to find today. A sense of occasion is nonetheless preserved. Our heroine is of course the lady in the flowery pink hat. Her pose speaks volumes.
I mainly needed to deal with the strong contrast and the fact that the main subject was in shadow. Some subtle lightening in the foreground helped to punch her out (as the saying goes hehe).
