    So I think I terribly failed in my aim of getting a vintage look. But ah there must be a valuable lesson to learn here. Critiques please?? :)

    Shot this with an olympus e410 and a 50mm OM manual lens.

    its a nice shot, and i think the vintage look CAN be attained...maybe try warming up the colors?
    im a big fan of vignettes, and i think it def suits the image here.

    *EDIT*
    just for ****s and giggles i did these using alien skin's 'exposure' filters.

    Wow I really like the last edit - it looks great! The middle one is a bit too green and the face is too overexposed in my opinion.

    Thanks again!!! I'm going to look into the aliens skin plug in now for sure.

    Anyone else have anything to add? Perhaps criticism about the shot regarding composition,focus,lighting ect. I'm pretty new to all of this.

    nice job colours wise.
    despite that, it will never look vintage. you need a vintage looking subject to give a vintage feel to a photo. her clothes look anything but vintage.
