I had to edit something tonight before I pass out tired as all get out…
I have not been keeping up with my New Years plan of trying to shoot or edit something each day.. the full time job is killing that plan lately.. but thankful I have a job and will happily put up with having to work vs. not working…
Critique away.. I will happily critique a shot of your for #BTLcritique just drop a few comments on mine and I will check out your stuff and return the favor….
i like it, shot on your pad?
Hi Brent, I like the shot but I find the light on her chest to be too bright… too much contrast to the dark areas of the photo. If you could tone the brightness down, this would be a great picture.
+michel prins ha no… I have an export tool in Lightroom that exports to a full or aspect ratio format for ipad… it just tags the image with that…
I like to do that so I can drop them right into my iPad for my portfolio folder I have there….
I was wondering when someone would comment on that thou…it is a great lightroom export plugin thou from +Matt Kloskowski
I have to agree with +Steve Boyko The bright center cuts the picture in half. If you cropped it there it would probably work as an alternative.
Even though the chest is bright, I like it =)
I don't mind the contrast between that, the suit, and the shadowed background.
I totally see what others see in the chest, but what throws me is the dark of her nose and under her lower lip. I think if her face were brightened (the nose especially), the bright chest wouldn't seem so out of place.
She's awesome, btw, and rocks those glasses hard. Great stare.
I tend to post more interesting edits to get opinions on where to take other work…
I do tend to like strange contrasty lighting – if that is good or bad is a much larger discussion.. here it is looking for toward the dislike side than the like side on this image…..
Thanks for all the input so far….
I would agree with +Steven Marra, I like it bright like that. It might be because I usually prefer "different" photos from "correct" ones. To be honest, I would even try to slightly increase blue saturation on it, to make it look a bit "out of space". And glasses win 🙂
In my opinion, this not look like a pose…but as she enters the scene. Light is perfect, highlight is on glasses and number…just perfect…
