I just learned how to! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

I haven't shot any new work for a long time so this one is a scanned transparency from my archives.

Your thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
All constructive criticism will be carefully considered. Unhelpful disparagement will simply be ignored.

Thanks Don.

You know all the times I've looked at this picture in the past I never noticed it.
Now that you pointed it out, it suddenly becomes obvious.

Difficult to correct on a Kodachrome. Praise be to the new order!

I just signed up for an evening course in Photoshop, So I will use it as an opportunity to practice.

Cheers,

Kevin.

That's a good attitude to have. I would still see if there is anything you can gain from it, though. Some guys here are great shooters, but are assholes when it comes to critiquing.

There are three things about this image that bother me.

    [*]The shadow across her face from her nose. It looks like your using a fill flash on camera left. I dunno, I can't figure it out. I would have used a more directional light or used a silver relfector just to bounce enough light to make her eyes pop.[*]That handle behind her showing between her legs is a distraction.[*]Don already mentioned it, but the net showing behind her is also a disctraction.[/list]
    It's a nice shot! If I were picking your image apart that's what I would have to say.

    Mike

Kevein,

Nice shot. I like the use of colors together...good choice..they dont clash and they have a similar tonality (in other words im trying to say the colors are not competeing for attention....if tonality is the right choice of words). The lines in the image are nice...s curve of the model s curve of the pool...it works well to draw me through the image without the backgound being distracting with the wider depth of field. The only negs I would say have already been said...but not enough to not like the shot.

My thought for the day:
youve gotta have a bigger hole to get deeper.

Thanks Mike.

I have been lurking on this site for quite a while now and I know that the vast majority of critiques are given with the best intentions. Some are not well worded and draw unnecessary reaction. Occasionally some are just rude.
I fully intend to to listen to any critiques I receive here, and to give thought to each of them. Only after I have decided they are rude will I ignore them!

With regard to your comments, you are spot on. The general untidiness between her legs needs some work as both you and Don have pointed out. I will practice my PS skills on it, but my real aim is to learn to catch it at the taking stage.
With regard to the lighting, I am struggling to remember what I used but I think it was a gold reflector rather than a flash.
Probably should have been further to the front and a little less intense.

Seeing the light at the time of taking a picture is, I think, my biggest weakness, and I know I can learn a lot from the people on this site.

Cheers,

Kevin

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

This was the first time I have posted anything to a forum like this and it's great to get analysis that goes beyond the oohs and aahs of family and friends.

Cheers.

Kevin
