    "How much for your soul?" :fangs:

    I don't know why, but everytime I transfer an image to my computer via RAW file, any form of gradient (like the silhouette here) looks awful. I can't seem to keep a steady gradient without it looing blotchy.

    Good idea, but I think it would be better if the background was a little brighter and the money was evenly lit and not blown out.

    I guess it's a monitor calibration thing. i can see the jacket and hair, Although I agree it is quite dark and blends.

    Thank you :)

    Thanks :D

    Thank you for your input.
    I tried for a brighter background, but it made the flame silhouette less obvious and that is one of the main point in the image.
    I'm suprised that the money isn't bright, but evenly lite as there's a medium softbox about half a meter away from it pointing towards the subject. And I agree that it's a little blown out., but it had to be to keep the rest of the frame lite evenly. (One of the restrictions with the size of my room)

    Many thanks.

    "Mephisto" ... wow. Cool idea.

    I like how you are mostly just face and hands with hair looking like it is fiery and sticking out to all ends, very devillike, good one!

    A pity is the light on the money and consequently on the sleeve and shirt sleeve or sweater sleeve (and watch? Ah no. No watch but something bright). That is pretty distracting.
