How would you improve?
Thanks and please vote
I like the shot. Sky seems oversaturated a bit for me. Reminds me of Kodak E100VS slide film.
I love it!
Love the high saturation/angle of the photo.
She's a great model as well! :thumbup:
What a great shot! Love it!
I love it. Cute girl. I think it would be better if you could see her eyes.
Use a different support for the model. The black wood fence isn't so appealing...although i like that we can see the sky through the gaps.
Put some footwear on the model, or position her feet more subtlely.
really cool, but it seems more like a landscape shot than a portrait....
just my 2 cents.... I do love the sat and angle a lot though.... maybye im just not used to seeing them like this..,..
I'm sorry but I had to say bad. As the single "bad" vote, I suppose I should explain my rationale. I didn't rate the photo as "good" because I don't really think it is. And I can't rate it as "average" because you obviously know what you're doing (i.e. the photo isn't mediocre because you're an inexperienced photographer). If this really is the look you're going for, then yes, I would say well done, it's "good." But in my eyes, this shot defeats the purpose of a portrait shoot (accentuating the person who is the subject of the photo). There are only two things here that I think get in the way of that. The first is DOF. It would have been just as easy for you to have gotten the subject in focus and at least to some extend blurred the background. The second, which is related to the first, is how saturated everything in the photo is. If you want to accentuate the subject, you need to make them stand out, particularly from the rest of the photo. That, I don't think you really achieved here. Yes, your subject is perfectly shot, but so is the railing below her and the tree behind her. I shouldn't be looking at either, really. Then again, that is sort of my personal preference. Like I said, if this is just what you were going for, then well done. But then again, if you were confident in the outcome of the photo, you probably wouldn't be asking for other people's opinions (unless this is some narcicistic request for approval).
Disclaimer: I am tipsy. I cannot be held responsible for this post tomorrow morning.
1. I'd have her look at the light source.
2. A shallow depth of field?
The light on her face is on the harsh side, or perhaps its a little too contrasty for my taste. I agree with Danalec, having her look into the light source would get rid of some of the "raccoon effect." I think. Also, I don't think it would be bad to have her looking wistfully off into the horizon.
I think it's creative, and fresh. I'm not sure that many photogs out there would have come up with this shot. I think you're really onto something here.
LOVE the angle!
Love it. Would not change a thing.
It’s good, but is missing something to push it over the top
