    So what is the opinion of the exposure and its effect?

    I like this one, but I think it would be more effective in a blue tint.

    But he didn't ask about the tinting. This sepia color is a running theme through most of the pictures I have seen from boogaguy, so I think it is a personal preference for him but maybe he could shed some light on the choice for us?


    I am just wondering, what is the picture trying to show? Someone coming back to life? Or is it the spirit of the person holding the womans hand?

    If it's the latter, i think you need less exposure on the sitting up guy, and expose the guy laying down a little longer.

    If it is a resurrection type deal I think your exposure fits the theme/mood of the picture very well.

    I like the sepia because of the old pictures in my family shoe boxes. They are all old and have that old sepia look naturally. To me the sepia has a creepy aesthetic. Its old, weathered an aged so I choose to use it in different shades as I think it adds that look to the pictures that feel right to me and match what i see in my head.

    The picture is definately a resurection.
    The spirit leaving the deadman laying on the bed.

    and I think the sepia adds to the photo as well. I wouldn't go any other color hue, though if I were experimenting I'd try a less strong hue, and possibly black and white (but I'm sure you've already tried that).

    If you are going for a spirit leaving the dead man, I'd switch the exposures on the two to make the sitting "spirit" look more transparent, while leaving the body solid, since most people are solid.:lol:
