    Here's a shot I did of my friend - she wanted to get a little crazy and convey a message of running from zombies or monsters. Think old scary movie.

    Is it too much? What do you think? Opinions, suggestions?

    And of course, I don't mean to offend anyone! :wink:

    Thanks!

    that one is great! looks more like a real world image than the other so called spooky one.

    easy to see the liquid is not blood, but i looks more like dirty water. however, that is fine for the image!

    DOF nicely chosen, focus spot on. nice tight crop giving it a dramatic feel.

    great expression in her face ... can I hire her? :)

    I'd like to see more perspective in this one. This looks like it was taken with a 135mmish lens, so the DOF is compressed, I think something along the lines of a 28mm, off to the side with a tilt so it would be more dynamic and you would be able to identify the gun easier.

    well, if identifying the gun is important ;)

    I know what you mean by using wide angle, that would make it more pronounced .... but it might lose this real-life feeling which is there in the image now.

    I was actually concerned about not being able to ID the gun, but I liked the way it looked out of focus and put more focus on her expression - I could definitely try it though with a wide angle. Thanks for the suggestion!

    You hit your mark then. Dawn of the Dead screenshot? Convincing enough to be.

    No I haven't seen that movie! I'll have to pick it up. I was just thinking of all the Night of the Living Dead movies that uses to scare the bagizes (sp?) out of me when I was a little kid. Now they're pretty humorous :lmao: We really had a lot of fun with this shot!
