comment's on the lighting mainly...any comment's welcome
I like it, great detail on the eye.
As of the lighting, to me the shadow on her left eye under her hand is a tad too dark.
I also would have liked to see a little bit more of her hand instead of seeing two fingers peeking into the shot.
OOOH! that's nice. If my eyes looked as nice as yours that's the picture I would try to take too. lol they're beautiful.
Great detail, and I like the unique crop with part of the hand.
But, I would also like a little more light under the hand. Just enough to let us know there's an eye in there
No new critiques here...but I see where your username comes from.
Nice shot, by the way.
Id also like to see a little bit more hand, but I think the dark shadow on the eye is great - I wouldn't lighten it a bit. It helps bring the picture back to being whole, with the left side being dark as it is.
The eye came out great.
I'm on the bandwagon of slightly lightening the shadow, but I really like this self port :thumbsup:
Thank you everyone!!
I've been playing around with lighting lately so I wanted to make sure I was doing something right.
I didn't want to tell but I darkened the eye slightly with selective color in CS2. I got my name from me because I'm a natural red head BUT in this photo I dyed my bangs red...not so natural
(thank goodness it washes out)
anywhoo...I'm off to check out some other threads.
