I am not sure what your reason would be, other than to maybe wave this under the photographer's nose and let him know he is not a pro and you can prove it.
If I am misreading or misinterpreting, I apologize. If I am correct, I do not believe this is a "professional" approach for obtaining critiques on anther photographer's work.
If it is your work, that is another matter, and I would be happy to give my thoughts.
no, what I am asking is, was my critique a fare and accurate critique of the photo, and whats your critique if different than mine. I am not going to throw them in his face etc. I just want to know if I am seeing things that aren't there. Am I being to critical because I have a big nose?
When i gave my critique i was accused of not
critiqueing the photo but instead, calling the model a hook nose. Then another person piped up and said there was nothing wrong with it at all.
So now I am second guessing myself and wondering was I wrong or right.
But to me, the shadow under the nose does in fact give her nose, a hook shape,( am I wrong? Am I making it up?) which i believe is easily corrected by just something to reflect a small amount of light into that area, making the shadow not so harsh and giving some detail to the dark area etc.
the brighter part of her nose(the tip and right side as we view it), looks odd shaped because there is no seperation from her nose and side of her nose. And finally the hot spot on the tip of her nose. It's shiney and I pointed that out also.
so was i right? Was I wrong? whats your take on it?
