    Hi All,

    Just postin a few shots now that I've learned how to sharpen after resizing to 600x400 (that is the most acceptable size, yes?) Any thoughts on comp, lighting, posing etc would be appreciated.

    All my images are "please edit" - I like to see what others can do w/ PS as I know zip about it right now.

    I noticed today that in #1 he's got an electric hydrant growing out of his ear...not much can do now. and in #3 the curb intersects w/ his head...is this terrible?

    Thanks for lookin!!:D

    Fun stuff! I feel the second is stonger than the first. Did you do any like the second with him just a bit further into the frame? Looks as if he was cropped to save the car. Retouch out the sign, and you've got a keeper.

    Pete,
    Didn't take anymore that showed him better - he was in a rush to go so I was snappin quickly. Would this be a better image with both shoulders completely in the frame or is this still acceptable? Not sure what retouch means...I think you're saying to get rid of it alltogether?
    Thanks for the feedback!

    I don't know if you need the whole second shoulder... I just wondered how it might look if there was just a bit more of him.

    And yeah.... I'm old. Retouch = clone out.

    I like the 2nd shot better than the first... I don't think you need the whole 2nd shoulder. It made me feel like he was "stepping into" the photo. I would make him more dominant, if there was more of his chest/shoulder tho. I am on the fence ;)

    The first one...edited...no more electric hydrant (I had no idea that was what it's called, so now I have learned something today :D)

    The 3rd one... it's a cute photo but w/o the car in view, his car keys make it look more candid than anything. Oh & his elbow got snipped a bit. It's a fun shot tho... :) Not sure about the curb intersection, he is in focus, so it didn't get my attention until I read your caption.

    I think so... but maybe it's personal preference :) I am in still learning :D

    Laugh... see, I totally believed you too.

    I still like it tho ;)

    The 2nd is my favorite, the 1st one (w/ the hydrant edited out), then the 3rd. I like your swimmer's photo on another thread too. I'll have to check out the rest of your work.

    I removed the sign, the messed up places in the road, and the eagle on his shirt.
    Also-the sharpen you did on the eyes was kinda wierd so i "fixed" that too. Great shot - HONDA!!!!!! (and acura, lol):thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
