I took this picture in a trendy antique shop. I cross processed this slide film in C-41 chemicals

This was my first time experimenting with slide film processed in C-

41. Please tell me your opinions on this photo.

Very nice. Compositionally pristeen, exposure perfect. I like the 'near-far' aspect of the composition, and of course the colors. If I could wave a magic wand and change anything I would just like for there to be a edge light seperation of the models head from the painting in the background, but that is really nothing, it adds as much as detracts. When I look at it I see a white dot as her earring, and her hair tied back in a big bunch. I know that it is not.

 

I'd also like to see what she is touching on the table. Again, it doesn't really matter though, if the pillow was moved left, the composition would be too perfectly aligned.

 

I like this portrait a lot, it conforms to my ideal of a portrait which meets two criteria: First, that no one ask when viewing it, "Who's that", and second I like to imagine that when the subject hangs the portrait on their wall, that friends and family will first be drawn to it, look for a moment or two, and then exclaim, "Is that YOU!?".

 

Congrats.

Too bad that sofa's not available in that color in reality, I'd snap it up! (OK, so maybe I'm insane?) I agree with basically everything John G. said about the dot/hair of the lady, but otherwise I love the outrageous color effects you got from X-processing. Now I know it's something I'll have to try.

This is my favorite of your photos (second to the one of your friend playing the guitar). The composition is excellent, and the yellow and blue together really catches the eye. Makes me want to do some more experimentation with cross processing.
