For #SquareSunday curated by +Matt Soave.

Another photo taken in 2008 that I never processed or uploaded, and it wasn't hard to see why since the shot was 1/20s on a f/1.8 50mm; a little slow and a little full of blown-out highlights and super saturation in its original colour. However, I liked the composition when I just looked at it so I decided to see if I could salvage something to my satisfaction; it needed black and white treating and a serious crop to take out the unsaveable portions of the photo, and it's not perfect because there are still some areas devoid of decent information from which to recover but I'm quite happy with what I could retrieve from the original shot overall.

As for the photo itself: I know it was taken in Beijing, and it's either outside a restaurant that we dined in on our first full night there or near a theatre where we watched some Chinese acrobats perform. Unfortunately, none of the photos taken around the same time as this give much of a clue.
