    IMO dust and scratches dont make the retro look. It's the colors.. But nice photo nonetheless. With a larger pic I could retouch it and post my view of retro

    Nice pic, I like the soft tones and the models hair and the lamp as well. Was the pic taken from the reflection of a mirror?

    I always find your work interesting. I really like this approach. The pose bothers me a bit though... without the arms and neck in view. It almost feels like a "snuff" shot. I LOVE the tones, and the subtle shadow detail is very nice.

    Really nice shot. I think had her arms and/or hands been shown it would be perfect. Then again, it may be hard to do that and keep it looking original. IDK. But it looks nice, the scratches are a nice effect, but I wouldn't miss them if they weren't there.

    her pose is fine...and directly looking to the audience makes it more appealing....very good soft lighting....rather topless.

    Sorry, as a big fan of the real thing (so to speak) this one is sorly lacking.....


    You have a deasent base but clean off that negitive and loose the water spots and hair, Greyscale with some sepiatone and then add inverted vignetting...then you are closer.

    i agree with a little desaturation (try the sepia too though...i am seeing some red in her lips), but i like the dust, and do think a little vignette would help.

    other than that i dig it.:thumbup:

    Really? What first made an impression on me is that this image is NATURALLY nearly monochromatic. All nice, warm tones.

    I have to ask... closer to what? I presume you mean a successful image. I can only hope you don't mean closer to many other images.

    I'd like to hear more thoughts on this.
