    Have a few more from this shoot, as well. Maybe I'll post them later.

    Thanks for any feedback,

    The first one is IMHO to noisy but captures a great expression. The second one makes me kind of sad. :cry:

    Interesting shots. I love everything about the #2. :cheer: 1 is different; noise, saturation, frame, setting (LOL) all work for me...hell, this is art and anything goes. Well, almost everything. Nice job! :wink:

    I thought the noise was part of the wall texture..

    The noise was added to give it that grainy feel of old newspaper, then the color frame was added to build contrast.

    Anyway...it's just art, right. :)

    It might look cool to have her smooth and the noise only on the door. You could probably do that fairly easily either by extracting her or just selecting her and doing a 'smart blur' in PS of 2-3 pixels and a threshold of about 5 (on the image at it's current size, if you're working with a larger one I'd bump the pixels up a bit). It also might be cool to have just the box smooth and the rest grainy. Just thoughts... it would make her stand out more anyway.

    Thanks, everyone, for the comments.

    It's always interesting to get a different set of perspectives. I posted these two in another photo forum and one person commented that these were only "so-so" photos and not up to par with my usual stuff.

    I take it all with a grain of salt, you know? I just do what I do and if people like it, fine. If they don't...fine. :wink:

    Art is art...
