Open Market in Bairro Peixoto, Copacabana

An open market provides a endless supply of subjects. The people, the colors, the fruit, and well …. the fish. The subdued light of a heavy overcast enhanced the colorless background and makes the red in the fish standout from the drab surroundings. The stark composition of this photo is enhanced by limited  color palette.

The photo was taken with a Nikon F100 fim camera using a 180 mmmm f 2.8 Nikkor lens. The film used for this image is FujiPress 800. The approximate exposure is f 5.6 @ 1/250th second.
