    Hopefully this is in the right folder - I was deciding between this and the people one. I looked at this as more of a portrait session, so, this was my final decision. If any of the mods feel as if it doesn't fit, feel free to move it :)

    I will couple this with one other question about colour profiling. (For lack of a better term) In photoshop, I have them looking just as I want them, and when I pull them onto the net, it looks as if someone decided to train 30% of the colour. I know that the web has less gamut *correct term?* but I don't think it should be making that large of a difference.

    Anyways, here is my all too willing mother, who put up with the cold and came outside for 5 min. Please feel free to critique in any manner on colour, perspective etc. I am really trying to bump myself up the learning curve here.

    All of these images are also in BW- if you wish to see one or two of those versions just ask.

    2. This was more of a fun shot - but it is starting to grow on me

    Cool series!

    Do you work in AdobeRGB? If so, make sure you "convert" the file to sRGB before you save it as a JPG. It's at the bottom of the "edit" menu in CS2.

    Oh crumb! I think the RGB vs. sRGB very well may be my problem. I will have to play around with that - thank you so much for pointing that out!

    Thanks to both of you by the way on your generous comments :)

    #2 is just wonderful. I like all of them, really, that one is just a standout for me. You did a very nice job with these. :)

    Your mom has very striking eyes. You have done a good job capturing them, and a good job framing her.

    #3 is a little too tight for my taste.
