By the skin of my teeth is how I might categorise this photo.
We had dropped by the Folk Museum in Kannur and while there was plenty of interest to see and photograph, I really wanted to capture people. The light was poor and this pretty woman was clearly embarrassed by my intrusive camera, especially as I had caught her at domestic duties, and was resisting turning toward me. I risked taking two shots and this was the second.
The low light and high ISO together with the difficult contrast gave me problems with the processing, but I like the painterly result. Your comments are welcome.
