I really wasn't sure if I liked the "photoshop" look or not. I also have this as a normal color picture, but I kinda like the way her hair stands out. The hair and blanket are natural color, but the rest of the picture was made B & W.

Let me know what suggests or comments you have.

Sorry, but I'm new to this and I'm not sure why one of my pictures got some great comments but this one and another haven't gotten any. I really found helpful the comments that I did get. I would really appreciate anything you can say about this one.

Thanks.

I agree with you... we ( photographers, working on our glamour skills ), post our work on this web site in hopes of getting some feedback by others with more advanced skills in the glamour photography field. When I joined Garage Glamour several years ago these boards were very active. For reasons I don't want to go into here I was unable to photograph anything for the last two years. But I'm back in business now and I too am very disapointed by the lack of responses to our posts. I must admit I too am guilty of not responding as much as I should. But I will coment on as many photos as I can now.

I'm not a pro, like you, I'm here to learn. In my opinion.
I like the idea and composition. I'm not sure why but the back looks too blown out, and lacks detail.
Hope this helps. Don't forget Photography is your art. You create what you like. It's YOUR creation. it's what YOU invision in your mind. If some one liks it fine if not oh well, thats fine too. What matters most is ,are you happy with it.

Well, I'll be honest. I don't care for it. I'm not a big fan of selective color. I'll admit it sometimes works but, in this image, I think not.

don't feel bad, I've had posts with over a hundred views and ZERO comments,,,

I'm def. not feeling it, with the gold toned hair. Perhaps people were just being nice...

Keep posting though, it's all good!

This is the original with some slight editing to take out flaws in the sheet and such. What do you think?


OK, can anyone tell me why the link shows up and not the picture?
