Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
hey all!! my first post on the forum. was doing this shoot with my girlfriend, trying to get the moment when the egg exploded, went through about 18 eggs and i feel this was the best shot. was very messy but very fun. anyway would love to hear some feedback about the shot and the edit.

interesting capture, but I think the contrast is too aggressive IMHO.

edit: also the green fingernail bothers me, but that's trivial really.
I have always wanted to try this. Nicely done. The only thing that bothers me about this is the shadow.
This is quite wonderful. Very strong, vibrant, and graphical.

I would consider doing a color swap on the fingernail, to something that contrasts with the bright yellow better. A little pop in the middle there. Experiment with purples, reds, blues, and run the saturation through the roof on the nail. Make it the visual center, a point of POPPED COLOR to anchor the picture. Or, render it neutral and let the egg yolks take over.
That's a heck of and omlette that you ruined with 18 shots.

But that being said, I like this shot except the fingernail as mentioned.
ok i changed the color of the nail to a more gentle purple... what do you think now?

Very cool shot, but I prefer the original fingernail, lol. It's an unexpected color, but paradoxically, quite popular right now, so it sort of anchors the shot in time with this little hint of a fashion trend.
This is a very neat photo, not something you would normally expect, very creative!
I love it! :)
I like it! The only thing that I would change if possible was not having those shadows on the back.

On the other hand I think they are a necessary evil from the light you needed for that picture.
