I don't know if there is a rule about posting here too many times in a week or not. But I would like to get my image torn apart again. I know on the set itself I have to get the columns rounder. I have a few new bungee cords to take care of that. But I would like all of the criticism you can muster. Again, my only goal is to get better at this and the only way to do that is face your shortcomings and conquer them or find a way around them.

Thanks for taking a look and letting out the truth.

I think it's a beautiful image, but since you seem to be ASKING for criticism... I don't think the white moulding on the left edge adds anything to the image. I'd probably clone/deform/crop it out. But I love the light, the pose, and the model is obviously very attractive. The skin tone seems to get lighter as you go lower on her body, which may be a result of extra light reflected off the white floor.

And just out of curiosity, is your "column" made of painted corrugated steel?

Okay, I'm no pro but here is my 2 cents.

The pole she is in front of is to hot on the left side and is distracting. The other pole on the left side shoud be cropped out.

The model is very nice, and overall I like the pose but I think her back leg maybe should be more forward.

Thanks for the input Brian.

You are right about getting lighter as it goes down and since the main was at eye level you must be correct about the reflection from the white board being responsible.

The column is actually white corrugated plastic. I found it at Lowes and Home Depot in the same location as the corrugated galvanized steel used for low cost roofing. I just drilled four holes in each side and bungee corded it around a 12" diameter cardboard tube that is 8' high. I think I am going to have to add two or three bunge cords to each column to get them smoother. I am also thinking about winding some ivy around the columns for some shots.

Thanks john, I appreciate the feedback. I will have to find a way to flag the columns from the main in the future.

First of all I think posing the model in front of the column is a bad idea instead pose her to the side and use the column as part of the composition or framing with the model. You definitely need to fix the uneven column and keep your vertical lines even when framing. I like the splattered filled background but in a few places it is busy and will take away from viewing the model.

Thanks JT. I plan to have the columns fixed up a bit before I shoot there again this weekend.

I definitely agree about framing her with the column. My real intention was to frame her between two of them and it got away from somehow.

I will see what I can do about the background. The splattering is basically shooting a bare Novatron head through a fake office bush. I may have to look into making my own cookie.

Any suggestions on how to keep the verticals straight? I tried using PS to rotate the image slightly and it helped a bit but not entirely. I was laying on my back on the floor in a half crunch position when I shot this one. It is a good thing it was a flash image otherwise camera shake would have been quite noticeable [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I can't do those crunches like I used to.

I am the world's worst in keeping vertical and horizontal lines straight. I get killed on them too. Perhaps I am just looking out for you too.....lol

Seriously, you can mount your camera on a tripod....yuck or you can just try and pay attention in your framing to keep it as straight as possible. Monopods work well too and can free you up a bit in crouching situations and not keep you so restricted as a tripod.

From now on when anyone critiques your lines, just say you meant to do it on purpose....
