    I posted this in the critique section but didn't much responses, Just thought I post the same picture in here to see what you think.

    The original was darker so I upped the contrast and brightness.

    It looks a bit to dark to me. I can't really see his face very well. I think it would be pretty cool otherwise.

    I like it a lot dude :thumbsup:

    IMO it aint too dark, BUT it's too flat (the face), shadows could be darker or "white" areas brighter. nice capture :)

    btw. if you've got ps cs you could try out "shadow/highlight".

    I think the darkness must have been my monitor. It looks much better to me now, I can actually see the face. But needs a bit more contrast IMO.

    Ok, thanks guys, I'll up the contrast, and try the shadow/highlight thing.

    Edit: I'm guessing you mean photohshop, from when you said ps cs, not sure about the cs.
    Edit2: I couldn't find the shadow/highlight thing.

    Here's the same image but with the contrast upped, I like it better now. Even though it's dark, I think it works. But do your experienced eyes think so?

    yeah, I meant Photoshop Cs (version 8 ), Cs because version 7 or lower doesn't have shadow/highlight :)

    Ah right. Any idea where I could get it. By the way, I didn't buy ps7, don't have the money for it.
