That is stunning.
Is that straight out of the camera? Vignetting normally comes out a darker shade than the picture, so I’m guessing there’s some processing going on here. However – it’s a great picture. Going to give us any clues as to the equipment, location, name and phone number of the girl in the white T shirt, etc?
As you asked….
Taken in Siam Paragon in Bangkok. I imagined it as an oasis of calm, but really it wasn’t. You may have read about photographers who spent six months above the snow line in Mongolia, sat in a freezing hole waiting for a singe shot of a Snow Leopard. Well, it was nothing like that. But I did have to wait about five minutes to capture a moment when there were no passing pedestrians in the frame, and all the time I was concerned that the guys at the bottom would pick up their shopping and leave, I wanted those packages in the shot.
Would have liked the subject a bit higher up the frame; but there other things around the periphery which meant I only had that view, and I didn’t want to crop and lose some of those ray effect tiles.
Had to fix white balance. Increased exposure and added positive vignetting in Lightroom to increase the isolation/ethereal effect. Otherwise, straight out of camera. End result is how I imagined the scene when I first spotted it.

“End result is how I imagined the scene when I first spotted it.” …. and that is the magic of a photographer (IMO).
