What could I have done better with this shot? Any feedback?
I can't think of a thing. It looks like a Hallmark card. It would have been nice if there was just a hint of spark in the diamond though.
I preface my comments with the same thing, I am learning too so it's just my opinion. That's why we are here right? Anyway, I prefer shots like this that aren't quite so bright to put more emphasis on the heart shadow. Otherwise it's always a cool shot.
lol, how funny to see this. I was just thinking last night about trying to recreate this. How did you go about lighting , settings?
Imo, I think the pages look too blown out.. maybe play around with the contrast or something? sharpen up and make the diamond sparkle?
Aside from that...:thumbup:
I agree that it looks a bit blown out. What do you think of this?
Great idea, but if I am picking nits here, wouldn't you want the scripture to be on marriage?
A little sparkle on the diamond would be good as well. I prefer the edited shot.
definitely find a scripture on marriage or love.... clean the ring and polish it to give it more shine and help that diamond sparkle. I like it
EDIT : well I see that you did use the scripture well known about love : Love is patient, love is kind : It's just not that noticeable unless you know those scriptures and what to look for. I found my eye pulling to the italics on the left instead of those on the right due to the shadow.
Very creative! I like the second picture the best, I thought the first was too bright.
It also took me a minute to find the scripture, maybe you can find a way to make it stand out.
I would have avoided unlucky number 13! but other than that great idea!
