i guess i'll be the first to jump in and say it. the photo is much too small to really get any effective critique. welcome to GG and welcome to the most common thing on GG! try hosting your photo somewhere at a larger resolution so we can see it better.

welcome and i hope to see more from you, hopefully a bit larger! this a great community so dont be shy.

The shot is a bit dark and since its small its hard to judge the details. You should usually crop below the joint, not above it as you did with the arm. The model doesn't look comfortable in that pose. But the wonder of this new age of digital is that you can keep trying different things and make the next shot even better.

Here's an example of a low key shot:



Cheers,

Tim and Fred thanks very much for the imput. What is the best pix size to post on here? I took them down to 72 for posting to the web and 800 x 600, but as you can see that is way too small, will take the advice and repost.

Thanks again,
Ron

you did it all right, and 800x600 would be more than enough, i usually set my large side to 600 for posting here. the thing is you put it in your GG portfolio and pulled it from there. the resizing engine will kill the quality of it, as well as keep it super small. try finding an outside source. i recently discovered FLICKR.COM and love it. its free!

here is one linked from flickr

when you click on a photo go to "all sizes" (one of the buttons across the top of the image) and once in that section (all sizes) below the image it will have a link directly to the image ("grab the photos URL"). you have posted the link for the page not the image. almost there!

looking at the image on flickr. my first thoughts are for a tighter crop, and try to eliminate some of the 'junk' on the backdrop in photoshop. im sure one of these guys who isnt an amatuer like me can give more feedback!

tried to link, but didn't quite work. I assumed I should use the image link below and then just put in the address, but no dice. Might just be too late here, lol. Thanks again for all the help and I'll give it another try later.
