Today's puzzeler!

Take a look at this photo and list the problems you see. What are the plus points and the minuses and how would you doctor the photo?



cheers,
rfs

Well, if it were mine, I would crop it down closer to her head for starters. Her right leg, or the leg on the left side of the image, is in kind of an akward position in relation to the camera, it seems directly at it. Now on to the good aspects, they do exist, in fact, they are pretty solid. Things like, there aren't any major hot spots in the image and the lighting is right on. The model is properly exposed as well as the fence that she is sitting on while the background is darker, providing good contrast between the subject and the negative space. Well, just thought that I'd chime in with my 2 cents, hope I did well on the puzzle.

My eye keeps going to the bright yellow between her right arm and her body, that's distracting to me. It would have ben more appealing if the background was blurred instead of so sharp. She is wll lit, and the exposure looks good to me.

Just a novice opinion.

The yellow thing between her arm is distracting. The background is too busy. The subject does not fill the frame as much as she could. There is something white growing out of her head. Exposure is good. From someone who is learning the trade.

LONG time lurker that finally has decided to post. As mentioned the yellow object between arm and body is distracting. I think it could be straightened a few degrees. Cropped tighter. I don't like that her head is centered bewteen the two 2x4's.

As also mentioned the exposure is great.

PS I have learned a lot from just lurking and reading.

Would have cropped it tighter, had Emily turn her right leg to the left a bit, put her right arm up against her body to remove that yellow space. Exposure is good.

OK, I'll play...

minuses:
Too much space over her head - while her face is at the 1/3 line the overall shape of her body filling so much of the lower frame makes the composition a little off balance. Been mentioned by others too.

Blue Jeans too blue - the jeans are such a different color than anything else that they really scream out

Her right leg - also mentioned by others - looks a little strange, not terrible, just a little off becase of it's position squared to the camera.

Black cuffs on sleeves - The black cuffs on the sleeves blend in with the background and give an almost 'thing' (Addams Family references) appearance to her right hand especially.

Here eyes - something about the light in her eyes makes them look like they are pointing in different directions, at least in this small image.

Her hair - being dark, it tends to blend with the background.

The yellow doorway - also mentioned by others - since the corner fits perfectly in the folds of her sleeve, it almost has a pasted in look to it.

Wide angle distortion - it looks like there is some wide angle distortion on the right side of the image as the posts are tilted out and the fence she is on is not level, however the posts in the background look vertical.

Light - looks a little flat, really front lit, but that's just my taste.

Pluses

Exposure is good.

Model's expression is OK.

What would I do with it?

I'd crop tighter - middle of right shin to the horizontal beam above her head and just to the outside of her left knee.

I'd also darken the background a bit and that yellow doorway too.

Cheers!
Todd
