    Here is photo of a friend of mine. I played a bit in PS (Gimp), I wanted to make a high-key photo, because I really didn't liked the original one and I wanted to save the photo somehow. How did I succeed? Some general comments on the portrait?

    I really like it. The shadow on his shirt (from his head?) is noticable, but I really like it.

    It still is not high key, but it looks good the way it now does.

    hyp0rbyte, yes, there are 2 shadows. On his shirt and behind him on the wall (because of the flash). The second one could have been easy to remove, but I forgot.

    LaFoto, so I was stil too careful with post-processing.

    If you feel like, it is of course OTE.

    In the spirit of helpfulness...

    Why do you not consider this a high key photograph? So often here, I see "high key" confused with "high contrast." High key is simply a description of image content... when all clothing and props are white or very light, on a white or very light background. I feel that describes this image.

    I hope this is helpful.
