    Here are two images from a recent portrait shoot. I think I like the way they turned out, but...as a frail human being...I crave feedback. :)

    So...do they suck? Are they decent captures of the couple? What are you thoughts about them from a technical standpoint?

    I appreciate each and every comment.

    Thanks!

    Very nice work! I especially like the second one! Great composition in both and a very powerful image in the 2nd one! Great tones as well. They both look great to me and I wouldn't change a thing!

    "So...do they suck? " : Oh :oops: ... No, I don't think it means the same than in french .... :taped sh: :lol:

    ++ I like your pictures very much : the idea, the composition, b&w, all.
    The first is more classical that the second. But it helps to understand the situation. For me, it's like saying that, wherever she is, the woman is always in his friend's mind or heart. What else better to show how strong is love ! Very good picture :wink:

    They are both great.

    Have they been photoshopped? In what ways?

    Your compositions are perfect. And your originality in having the reflections in the window really makes it stand out. It looks like she is looking directly at me which really draws me into the photo.

    I suggest you get these enlarged as I almost guarantee the couple would be proud to have them to cherish.

    Terrific job!

    Cool. Thanks!

    The only thing I did in PS was to convert them to a dark sepia, from full color.
    Maybe a slight level adjustment, but that's it.

    I really appreciate the comments, everyone!

    Thanks, again!

    I love the second image :) but too much details there.. if you could leave only his face and her reflection it would be neat :)
