The biggest thing for me is that these look over sharpened or they have been too compressed and have alot jpg artifacts. Considering you are just starting in photography I think you are doing pretty well. Watch the hot spots on her fingers and shoulder in the second one. But overall very nice start.

I agree they're a bit oversharpened. You might try using the healing brush on the really pronounced pores on the face. Pretty images. Good start.

Sorry, my professional opinions cost serious money and don't apply to photographs anyway.

However, if you want my *amateur* opinions:

A) You either need a better scanner or you need to learn how the JPEG compression system works in your photo app, because I've noticed your pictures tend to have compression artifacts, or something.

B) Photo 1

1) That hotspot on the right side of her nose is not good. Makeup needs work. You might be able to do something with the airbrush tool to tone it down, but it's finicky work fixing something that big.

2) I like the framing and composition.

3) Although I am bad about shooting blank expressions myself, I readily admit, there's something in this expression that is sort of dulling. She has wonderful eyes but then you get down to her mouth and it's sort of not doing anything. More smile, or less, IMO.

4) It's tricky to do dark hair and pale skin, so don't feel bad, but at least on my screen there is hardly any detail in her hair. That could be a problem with the scan or compression, though.

C) Photo 2

1) Little bit of a hotspot on her right shoulder. Some people might not mind it but I just hate hotspots for some reason. Nose is still hot but not unacceptably so.

2) Left eye needs more light. Where were the lighting sources for this image? A little fill to camera right might have been good. It might also have been good to back off the main light a bit.

3) Pose is an old standard but well executed. I like the expression much better in this picture, it looks a little more thoughtful.

So there you go - one amateur opinion. Probably worth what you paid for it.

Is that jpg problem stuff caused by the scanner making the pic so big and then the pic being so small when it shows up here?
On my screen the pic is probably 10 times bigger than what it shows like on here.

What program are you using to work with the image?

.jpg files are compressed every time you save them. each time you compress it you lose a little more information from the image. Think of it like this, during a day when you went to college classes, work, the gym, your doctor, out for dinner and then dancing, and each time you changed your outfit you selected a smaller purse, by the end of the night you would only be able to carry a lipstick and a drivers license. You should save the image as a tiff file as your working file. you can save a tiff over and over and wont ge the artifact problem. when you are finished editing the image, then save it (once) as a jpg.

If the pic you are uploading is a lot larger than it appears after you upload it, the problem is the site automatically resizing the image. Resize the image so that the longest side is no more than 600 pixels long and so that the file size is less than 150k and you'll find you it looks like what you upload.

If you are using photoshop, scan the image and do whatever retouching your going to do. Then resize to no more than 600 pixels on the long side. Once you've done that, sharpen by using unsharp mask (for images that size, I tend to use 50%, 1 and 0 for the settings, but the options are many.) Now, convert it to sRGB (image/mode/convert to profile/) and then save for web. Last, upload and you should be set. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
