    I use Adobe photoshop for some editing but I'm just learning so there isn't a lot I know how to tweak just yet.

    The white balance seems off, it is very yellow. Also, I think a faster shutter speed than 1/10s would be more ideal; there is some motion blur going on here. I find the background quite distracting. On a final note, his left eye is quite dark, almost all black. Better lighting on the left side would benefit this.

    I just had a thought! What if we made this a little more interesting? I'm thinking, have the "due date", this weeks would be 1/27/12, and then throughout the next week, people go through and like the ones they think are the best. Who ever has the most "likes!" No prize or anything, just something to make you feel even better about a photo that you already like.

    Thoughts?

    Here's my take on growth...If it were the summer, I'd have lots more ideas, but dead of winter with 6" of snow on the ground, I struggled...

    I love the idea! The lighting is nice and even and the wood grain pops. I imagine it would be even more striking with some dramatic lighting, like a grid or snoot. Very cool.

    Probably! I just have my camera and for a background, I taped 6 pieces of computer paper together and draped it from my door, and then stacked my shoes and put a piece of paper on there to act as a semi-reflector...It was interesting...I can't wait to have enough money/room to get a couple external flashes and some decent backdrops!

    Thanks for the thoughts. I adjusted the brightness and contrast a bit. So that could possibly have to do with the face shadows. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah I agree. That seems to be the problem. The lighting.... I don't have any flashes. Just using the standard lighting. I'm going to try the shutter speed. And background was a bummer. I just happen to catch this picture. Not exactly planned. Thanks for the info
