Market Place Canada

December 17

A fresh goods market in Canada 1960, full of interesting details. The woman trader in the foreground is wearing her version of an old world country costume. Nowadays fresh goods markets can be quite consciously styled to look French or vintage – at least their own, local version of it. Confusing!

I am used to old slides being faded but this one was too dark. In fact it was so dark and deeply saturated I found it a little creepy. The solution lay in lightening and sharpening, and reducing the strong yellow tones.

Before and after. Click for big.
