I still don\'t know if I should chuck this one in the roundfile.

A few things bother me about it. I'm just curious as to what others will see. Adam

It wouldn't be going in my round file!

The only thing that bothers me on it is the position of her right foot. With the shadows around it, it appears to be at a strange angle.

Personally, I would crop it tighter. Probably at mid thigh but retaining the proportions of the frame. I think the positioning of the highlights combined with the way her arms and hands are placed, creates a strong dynamic diagonal running from top left to bottom right. If I just mask the screen with a couple of pieces of card its looking really good to me.

No, this would definitely not be going in my round file. We must be setting ourselves different standards.

Please don't 86 this one! It's a great photo! I love the curve of the lines of her body along with the simple soft expression. Maybe the few small issues are long but forgotten as the photo works for me.

It's funny. Her right foot position was one of the things that I kind of took notice of and liked about it. Crystal is one of those models that has a huge repitoire of poses. All you have to do is dress her up and watch her go. The problems I have with the photo are:

1. The wrinlkles in the dress on her right side.
2. The fact that there is no bokeh on the background due to the small space I'm working in. Humidity in Tampa here wreaks havoc on my seamless backgrounds because I can't afford to run the AC 24-7.
3. This happens to be my favorite from the session, yet I still find fault with it. I don't like to photoshop much other than sharpening, which opens up another whole can of worms with my Nikon's soft focus issue.

I really appreciate your comments.

WOW
I read this "1. The wrinlkles in the dress on her right side." and decided to past this image into photoshop to see what you are talking about.

To see this I had to enhance the image and blow it up and even then do not see this an an issue that would require the shot to be dumped.

After a little photoshopping to basicly lighten it her and the background up I do not understand what you leave it as dark as you have it. Other than you say you do not like to work with photoshop much.

There is a lot that you can do in post processing that will improve this image to be reasonable for amny peoples portfolio. I really am impressed with this models pose (and the foot position cannot be improved in my mind.) if she comes up with it on her own, she would be a joy to work with.

Seems to me that learning resonable skills with photoshop is almost a nessesity with todays digital cameras.

I think the picture would have worked very well if there weren't so many created lines, like the one with her hands. It just seems to push it a little off balance but I like it otherwise.

To chuck or not to chuck?...

NOT CHUCK! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

If you want any kind of critique at all from me (I haven't read through everyone's posts), I'd say maybe it'd be nice if there were more separation between the bottom of her dress and the background, but who knows, maybe not? Everything else works so nicely, does it really matter? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
