    Hey guys,

    I made a thread about asking for some help with a ring in a book and using the light to cast a heart shaped shadow.

    This is for a poster that is being made for a church seminar about Relationships..

    this is the picture i came up with.. i used the WB to make the colour a little bit purplish.. initially i wanted to focus on the main verse we will be using but it didnt work out cause the picture doesn;t look as good.

    C&C

    Looks great. The blue does work for me because of the "steel" items in the picture. They are probably silver, but you get the gist. Steel blue. hehe
    I think I would like to see a slightly different crop if available with the items down and too the left a bit more...

    i think it looks sweet and conveys exactly what you want. I agree with the recrop. When i scrolled down the screen "cropped" your pic a bit on the top, coinidentally where the, "capture booty' apears on the right side page. and that made the shadow stand out.
    nice!

    thanks guys ; > i've only had the camera for about a month ; >

    yah i thought i might be too blue/purplish too but i like the effect .. i tried playing around with it in PS but i think this one looks best..

    the heart shadow thing has been done a lot ... but i tried to add the cross to say what the seminar is about ; >

    I really like the idea and the execution of the photo, the blue tint works well in my opinion. I'm not too sure about the depth of field, though. I mean, it's good, but I think it would work better with either a wider aperture to blur most/all of the text or a smaller aperture to keep it all in focus.
