Photographer's Note

This portrait was taken at Margarites - a colourful cretan village not far from Rethimno, where the art of pottery has been kept alive over the centuries.
The village is well known for producing all kinds of pottery but in particular the pithos, which were also produced in Minoan times and which now are produced in a great variety of sizes and colors beginning with smallest ones (not bigger than a walnut) and to giant ones as those that can be seen at Minos Palace in Knossos.
There's a potter's workshop almost in every house.

Tech note:
To fade the colors a little I made a copy of background layer, desaturated it and selected SoftLight method of layer mixing in Photoshop.

I also will post original, more colorful version as WS. I really can not chose which one is better. Maybe you will help me?
