    that is the original. simple raw to jpeg.

    That hand on his right shoulder is freaky looking. Not sure where it is coming from.:lmao:

    Unfortunately, everything wrong with the picture has nothing to do with either your lens or your treatment of the image itself, so you're going to get a lot of comments about the phantom hand, the dead-on flash, and the excessive deadspace in the upper and right portions of the shot.

    Aside from that, the image is fine, but nothing amazing.

    I think it looks better in colour. I think yo should have cropped to around the beam in the ceiling and to the edge of the chair the lady is sitting in to remove some of the backround things that distract my eyes from the main picture.

    The B&W seriously darkens the shadow. If I were to keep this pic, I would also photoshop the hand off the shoulder and crop the image.

    Um... I didn't mean lens... I meant FLASH. The dead-on flash is a problem.
