My youngest son's daughter aged 10
Is there enough atmosphere in this photo ?
there is enough atmosphere! :thumbsup:
great photo, I'm jealous.
but what are those tiny yellow spots? maybe make it duotone in ps?
If you look side on, on an LCD screen you can really see those yellow spots... there's also blue, purple, green and pink!
I'd do a major crop on this.. hope it's high Megapixel. The right edge is distracting in my personal view. To get a decent shape therefore, you need to trim the bottom and a bit off the top. Apart from a crappy crop (soz to be harsh), it's a damn fine photo with lots of atmosphere.
It was origionally scanned from a 6 x 4ins colour print and the changed to b/w in p/s
which may account for the colour spot you can see
As is often the case, cropping is a personal choice. It looks quite good printed on an A4 sheet.
Thanks for the comments
What is in that big white space on the right? Is there any detail there at all. If you converted it to B&W in PS maybe you could bring out some more detail there... but just a little. Just an idea, it might look like crap.
It is just a rough plastered wall done in white. I removed some of the detail so as to create the effect from light to dark.
Which is the reason for crop done as it is. You either like it or not. Your choice.
Haha! You tell 'em!
Is it OK to justify one's decisions on how to crop a photo. Since the basic idea of the forum is to invite comments.
haha. you rock man.
really like this shot. the bw isnt really bw though...how did you do it?
The origional was scanned from a 6 x 4cm coloured print, then changed to b/w in PS. This one was scanned and saved in colour mode from a b/w A4 print. Hence the suggestion of colour in the result
And to answer a previous critique. I did hard crop the origional pic as suggested, the picture lost all its atmosphere, and I wouldn't have posted it.
Wonderful! Your daughter is very beautiful. Man, she has HUGE eyes! Lovely photo.
