i took this today
Nice (though some would say you've cut the top of her head off).
I don't think sepia adds much to this photo. Do you have a color version?
Does it take away?
I mean, aside from the color...
Well yeah, it could take away alot. Like if the photo is full of complimentary colors. Makes about as much sense as a B&W photo of a fruit stand.
<shrug> Some people dig sepia, others don't. Personally I think toning an image should compliment the subject matter.
So, it COULD take away, but we don't know.
How would you use sepia to compliment the subject matter (if not in a portrait)?
Every kid with a dSLR makes a sepia image. It's a novelty. Like selective coloring. 99% of the time it makes no sense.
Do you normally get so bothered by some random internet guy's opinion? Go to the gym or something. Work up a sweat and get rid of that pent up aggression.
ok guys simmer down. i was just testing the in-camera effects and snapping random shots of a friend. im not a big fan of sepia myself but i thought it came out nice.
lol @ white !
I was asking questions in an effort to improve the critique (which obviously didn't work because none were answered).
