Well, I am going to be gentle at first. You image was taken at wide angle lense and that is why the model's leg appears to be larger than the rest of the body. Had you shot it at normal lense, 50 mm at least, you would have come out better, but actually longer local length let say 150 mm or more would hva been better. Exposure, or F stop is not bad at all. Don't give up, keep trying, we are not here to criticize, but prefer to give advice. Post again with a next try.

She is an attractive subject. But, I have to agree with the wide angle lens. As well, it has the appearance of being taken during lunch with the clutter/cups on the table next to her. It may be just me and my opinion, but getting her in a studio and taking control of light/lens/background could increase your results considerably. Look forward to your next effort.

Hey we are on the same boat. I started getting serious about photography this past june. Been learning tons everyday and now I found this amazing website. It's funny because the pic I did last, I applied the same style. BW with color on the model!!

I am going to start feeding the critics right now...

nice work BTW

Did you cut and paste her? I mean how did you do yours?

J Diaz,

Keep your eyes on the prize my man. Despite the "shortage" of human subjects to photograph, I'm still working away on just about anything else I can get. I'd love to see her in a studio.

Keep shootin',
JW

Thank. guys I know about the wide angle lense but I no have no choice. what should I do when you have only 4 feet of separation from you subject, if I use my 50 mm lens she become crop I take a risk that something like that might happen.
