This is a portrait of a contortionist girl at the height of her act. Here, she is supposed to put the candles one by one on the crown using only her feet and then place the crown, with the candles, on top of her head, again using only her feet. The girl literally almost folded her body backwards to achieve such feat, to the worry, delight, and heart-stopping anticipation from the audience.
I purposely grayed the background to put emphasis on the girl. I think the overall effect is good.
Re-coloring was done using the Color Effects app on the iPad.
