Hi Guys, I am looking for tips for better shooting and processing, thanks a lot.
The only thing I don't like is the chin of the girl alligned to the line of the tree. Beside this a good image.
Wow, I did not noticed it, Thanks.
Your subject is jammed right up to and facing the right edge of the frame, and is looking up to what, we can't tell.
The background and surrounding areas are really distracting for me. I don't know if you went to far with the clarity slider or sharpening, but somewhere you went too far.
I like the blue jeans against the greenery.
I'm not much bothered that we can't see what she's looking at; I think that adds an element of mystery to the image, but it does bother me a great deal that she's so far image right with all that empty space behind her.
I like the post and the photo but it feels unbalanced. I am no expert but I was curious what it would look like cropped. I don't know, I am not sure what you were after artistically. I kind of see it this way from a painter's view because that angular limb seemed like a tail on the lady. I hope you don't mind, it does say it's ok to edit your photo's. I did a lazy crop just to see. Additionally, everything is pointing up, trees, girl looking... I see portrait.
I think the reasoning was that big long tree stem to her left, which also gave the line for the leg.
But then, is the subject the girl, or the tree thing sticking up to her left?
Looks better with that tree thing cropped to me.
Could have tried a thinner DOF to OOF the background too.
Would like to know where this was taken. Look like some impressive bromeliads right behind her. Asia or Latin America?
Hi guys, thanks for all the comments, it really opened my eyes for some aspects.
Latin America, Brazil.
I agree with @jcdeboever and will add that I would like to get more separation between the subject and the background - you can choose to underexpose, overexpose or blur the background.
Separate names with a comma.
