    Does this portrait/landscape photo look real?

    From editing point, what do you think can be improved? Does it look real? Do you like this kind of portrait? It's kind of my first try of this type of portrait and I like it and want to incorporate scenery background into my portraits more.

    "Professional" Headshots, critiques needed

    I am trying to take some headshots for students at my university for $10-15 per picture and brand them as "professional" headshots. But since I am charging people for my service, I am pretty careful about the quality of the photos I give them. I am posting some headshots here and see what can be...

    Which ones are better looking regarding to color scheme?

    Have not been commenting or posting much here for a while, only because I have not shot much. Recently I shot some portraits of a friend. I found I am inclined to use lightroom preset to make the photos saturated a little more after processing them the first time. I like the saturated set (1st...

    Portrait of lovely twins.

    I had fun of taking photos of a pair of lovely twins. This time I took it a little bit slow so I find I like more shots than usual. Still find not all the shots have consistent color, specially with all the editing. But I think I got enough them close enough. Still have the over exposed red...

    Need help with fixing overexposed red/pink shirt in a portrait.

    Today I did a photoshoot of a twins. I was excited about the photos until I looked at several pictures of one girl wearing a red/pink shirt on my computer screen.

    Finally, my own creamy water shots!

    After looking at long exposure creamy water shots from others for years, I finally made some long exposure shots with 10 stops ND filters after I camped in a mountain couple of weeks ago. They are just some shots of small creeks, not epic as lots of others out there. But these are mine :band...

    Flowers, bees, Fuji X100T

    Fuji X100T is well known as a pretty good camera. After shooting some photos of the flowers, I must say I have to agree. Even though flowers are a cliche photography subject that's been shoot to death, I still enjoy shooting them a lot.

    Nikon D810 vs. Fujifilm X100T, can you tell which set of photos (of cat) are from which camera?

    Just recent got a X100T and took some photos of my cat, Oliva. Then I realized I took some photos of Oliva not long ago with my D810. I think they all did a good job and I like them both but prefer one set. Both sets of photos were taken at night with incandescent light. Did some basic...

    Help with correcting skin tone.

    Hello, everyone As you can see these portraits are shot with sunset behind the model and strobe light in front of her. Because these photos are backlit, I have spent hours to balance the foreground and background. I also pumped up with the saturation as I like saturated sunset. Unfortunately...

    Can you tell this photo is real of Photoshoped?

    I saw this photo online. Do you think it's possible to take a photo of the galaxy on a plane? Or have you done it ? I seriously doubt it's real. The author claimed it was real though.
