Any thoughts or suggestions?
I like the dropped out background, but the reflection in the sunglasses kill them.
If it were a reflection of a softbox, that's one thing, but of a street, it's another.
The lighting of the second one makes her face look chubby, imo. I'm a noob to composition, but maybe have it not be quite as high-key. You can't see any detail on her face, which is good, but it looks like its that way because her face is just one big blown-out highlight.
But I'm just regurgitating composition to someone who already knows it. I'm guessing you're at a level where you know what it takes to compose an image, and are kind of playing with it to see where you can bend the rules. If that's the case ignore what I said.
1st is much better than second, like the look.
agreed. and i actually like the reflection of the street here.
You need to get your monitor calibrated, because there's still detai lin the face. It's subtle, but it's there. It'd be much easier to see on print.
I like the 1st one. The second one isn't that great though. It is just a straight on shot that has nothing exciting for the eye. There needs to be something standing out in the picture, and the second one does not have it. Maybe if the sunglasses were off then there could be a connection with her eyes, and maybe a tiny tilt in her head. I'm no expert though. Like I said, I like #1.
Do you like this edit better for the second shot?
smoking kills and is stupid
These are great shots but I am not crazy about the smoking shot. It is really unflattering.
