    Hi Folks

    Its been a little while since I was last logged in and showing you some of my work, but I have been using a new model for some photo work and my results seem to be getting better. I have also purchased a 50mm lense to help with portrait work. All shots taken outdoors on believe it or not quite a windy and rainy day and are low res to allow use on the forum.

    Here are a few shots. Please let me know what you think to them. All C&C welcomed. I took around 300 or so pictures on the day so will post more as I go on.

    I'm not crazy about how the bright white of her nails distracts from the picture. It's just, I don't know, too white. Number 3 and 4 could use some skin softening. With the black background of #1, and the tree, did you shoot this indoors or did you remove the background? For some reason it seems odd to have leaves and moss in a picture without seeing sky (but that's just one woman's opinion, LOL). I like #3 the best, but the position she is in almost gives her a back hump.

    I would love to see some of your other shots. :) Pretty models!

    Thanks for the critique. My intention in the "moss" shot was to have a dark background so the focus of attention was on the model not the tree. I wanted the tree trunk itself aong with the moss to remain 'neutral' in the picture. In closing all the pictures were shot outside in a dimly lit forest near twilight.

    I will post a few more over the next few days. Thanks again

    Not bad - but as mentioned - the white on the nails is distracting, could they be hidden, or darkened (with nail varnish say) so the viewer is drawn to the features/face of the subjects?

    Just a suggestion, not having a dig or anything.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi again folks.

    Here is another in the series from Nat and Debbie. All critique welcomed. this particular shot was taken in a landscape format as Nat lay down over a tree stump sited right on the shoreline. It was a freezing cold day and quite windy, hence the hair blown across the face. I hope you all like it.
