My 6-month-old's hand in mine. Want some honest feedback.
/edit to fix link
I'm getting the red x.
Ok, visited the link
I like the composition, but I think there is a little too much palm on the left. It's a fairly large, flat, undefined section which takes away from the rest of it, where there is a lot of intricate little details, in the little fingers and lines and creases of the hands. I also think I would like it just a teeny bit darker. Other than that, it is really lovely.
When I get home, I'll have to upload it to a different site and then fix my link. OOPS!
Drlynn from my part this is an exellent theme and work...
This represents safe, security of the child's mind in the warmer big hand
Most of the part took your hand so this is my feelings!
I really love the theme and I think B&W done well with this one
Technically: Lighting seems OK, but it can be sharped more just my thought!
And hey...there is a hair in his hand.....was it yours or his mothers???
I'd crop some off the left side. It seems like there is a large light space there, lacking the texture that fills the rest of the image. It pulls my view away from the child's hand.
It looks like the back of the child's hand (the last finger or so) is edging out of the DOF; not a big deal.
Crop some of the adults hand. And I'd like to see how this looks one stop less exposed.
I second the lil bit of cropping of the adult hand.
Have a couple of queries though..
-Is that your hand?
-If so, how did you take the shot? Tripod or one hand?
Yep, it's my hand. The camera is in the other hand, balanced on the bed to keep it still.
wow...i like your shot.. especially with the differences in sizes gives a good contrast. what does it look like in color?
Don't know what it looks like in color. I was "experimenting" (ie fooling around) with our new digicam. I shot this with the built-in sepia filter, then decided it would look better b&w, so I converted in photoshop and adjusted the contrast and levels some.
The sepia version was ok, but the shot needed the extra contrast and I think that works best in b&w.
I might try colorizing it if I have some free time to play.
