This is the first image posted here. I'm open to honest constructive criticism on all aspects of my images, from the PS work, the pose, lighting, you name it.
Thanks,
Darrell

Darrell,

Well, welcome to GG!

First off, some technical aspects to your post.... it's pretty small: 275 pixels wide by 183 pixels tall. Try to shoot for around 500-550 pixels on the longest axis (either height or width). The forum software will resize anything over 600, so you don't want that, but you DO want the largest image you can get by with. Also, at 4.4Kbytes, it's kinda sparse on quality. Again, shooting for something in the 50-80KB range seems to work quite well. Personally, my standard image for online posting is 500 pixels on the longest axis at about 60KB, which makes it great for posting on the Other Model Place as well as GG and the local forums I participate on.

Secondly, be sure your image is in sRGB - it provides the best color rendition for our dumb web browsers (well, at least those of us in the majority that use Windows-based browsers). The color space insRGB more closely matches what our browsers are able to display. The reason I mention this is that I would expect the colors on her dress to really pop out at me, and they seem to be a bit muted, as if you user AdobeRGB as your working color space in Photoshop and posted that directly as a JPEG, instead of using the Save for Web option after convertint the image to sRGB.

As far as the image itself goes... I'm torn between thinking it's something that I would have shot back in the early 70's with the thigh-highs and the micropants, or whether it was something current. in any event, she's a cutie, the kicking pose is flattering... the skin tones look just a bit blue on my monitor, but it's really hard to tell on such a small image... Not sure about cloning out all the floor/background... kinda looks like she's floating, and I'm not sure that works real well.

Was that more than you wanted to hear? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Again, welcome to the posting family on GG!

Oh, here's a sample of what a 500x415 (and about 60KB) image would look like, size wise:

Well, nice outfit,...nice model....decent pose...


But it looks like you just cut a shot out and through her down on a backdrop, the image looks "fake" ... some level work in PS if you can. its always hard in the beginning, but the image just does not look real to me,

Wish i had something encouraging and pointing out to you, but... well, image looks fake to me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Like the concept of background outfit and pose what have you, but as stated above, image size, resolution, color space etc, just image is looking like a path'd image right now on a super imposed background [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Doesn't look real

Im sorry, im a bitter SOB today, wish I had some real thoughtful and helpful advice

Jason:
No need to apologize for being honest. I appreciate the time you've taken to comment. It can only help me learn. I only wish more of the 400+ people that viewed the post were as considerate as to reply. Besides, your from N.J., don't be so hard on yourself
When I posted the photo I sized it to something like 650x412 in Imageready, but the website reduced its size so I'm going to have to figure out what happened.
Best Regards,
Darrell

Thanks for the information on posting images. Now I know what I did wrong. I sized it in Imageready at aprox. 650x412.
I'll check the color space that I'm working in too. That may be the problem or there is a gradient layer that may be causing things to be so bland.
I have a lot to work on, and it's feedback like yours that will help me make progress.
Best Regards,
Darrell
