I'd like to get some feedback on this shot. It was very late in the afternoon just moments before sunset. THis gave the models skin a warm glow on top of her natural tan.

Any comments appreciated.
Thanks
Kerry

Is the photo that bad? 205 views and not a single comment?

I think its too warm. I think the WB is shot. The cropping is a little off on the right side especially.

Note: You did get two responses in the form of thankyous so that is a form of comment, isn't it?

Cheers,

BigT,
On the contrary! I think it's an excellent photo. You have a beautiful model, your composition is well done, and a perfect backdrop. I particularly like the pose and your angle of view. From my perspective, a glamour photograph in addition to being a quality photograph should evoke emotion. You've hit the nail on the head with this one my friend. Yes, it might be a bit warm for some tastes, but still a terrific photo never-the less. Might crop out that right foot . Some simple adjustments in photoshop and you'll have a great photograph.
I would consider a high number of hits as a positive sign. The lack of comments is sometimes par for the course as I have discovered myself. Not sure why? Perhaps it's an inner circle thing or perhaps critiquer's intimidation.
I don't know.
Would like to see more of your stuff. Will be on the look out. For the little it's worth, I'll offer my opinion. Be aware though, I'm not a professional photographer. I'm just a guy with a a camera that likes pretty girls.

Very Nice, David

Over all it looks pretty good to me. Maybe see what it looks like if you turn down the saturation just a bit. I like images shot at this time of day for the warm tones and the sun is less intense so that the models won't be squinting with their eyes so much.

Try applying a Cooling filter (82) at 25% in photoshop and see if you like that. I tried it and I think it really improved the image (i.e., she didn't look at orange).

Hey Mark. I tried that.

Here's this issue I have. Yes the girl is very warm in color. She had a deep tan and the sun is right on the horizon, which as you know, makes the subject take on a very warm glow.

This pictures as I have it posted is pretty much how the scene looked.
When I put the cooling filter on it, it makes her look cooler for sure, but also makes everything else look worng.

This is the debate raging in my head. Lets say we have a girl sitting at a dinner table in a restaurant at night. The main light is the candles from the table centerpiece. Now naturally that pictures should look warm compared to daylite. Wouldn't it be wrong to chage the color back. When I watch movies, they set the lights to be true to the scene.

Just confused

Depends on your point of view I would guess. If you are doing photojournalist thing, I would guess that keeping things closer to the warm might be appropriate or shooting products that have to look exactly a certain way. If you are doing something more artistic, then all bets are off, I would say.

Big T,
I think the photo looks great. Alot of RG's photography is pretty warm and it works very well obviously for him. In all honestly, I think your photo looks more than warm. It's kind of orange. Still a really nice photo. Consider trying the cooling filter, use a layer mask to paint all but her skin back to original color, and then dial down on your opacity until you get her skin a bit cooler but still warm. But like you said, it's really a matter of taste. Nice photo any way you cut it.
David
