Asking Questions...

That's how this little girl looked like, as she watched her balloon swinging in the wind and wondering that it always drifts towards the sky... It took me quite some time to get this shot as many people kept on walking through the frame and the girl could barely stop pulling on the balloon's string: In the end, however, it floated right above her head and I released the shutter.

Post-processing is pretty straight forward: I've first been using the channel mixer to get better tone contrasts and, in a second step, applied some colour mapping by using individual curves for the red, green and blue channel. I've added the original image, so you can check the effect achieved.
