I love the composition and design . I don't like the hair outline , Too neath . Was she cut & paste in PS ?
I guess... I am sure you could amuse your models by sending them the link without asking for critique. Just a thought! I don't think I have seen the original image of this. I may be wrong but I am sure it can't be as bad as this. The shadow created by her left arm is a touch distracting. I know you can do better and I am sure your models deserve your best.
Artifacts everywhere Thanks. Isaac, I did this hurriedly (read lazily) If I have the patience, I may go over it and do it properly. I don't think the photo is really worth it though ...
super, very nice..
john! your the man. your work is always top notch! i will question a few things on this one however.. i see some hints of jpeg artifacts surrounding your subject and the tip of the upper left corner looks.. overlooked? give me your feedback!
I do these largely to amuse the models ... the technique is very basic.
Yes John, that's a great design! Wim.
Interesting and well-done composition. Lovely model. That hair!
Fantastic, colors, composition, John. Alberto
Really ! Alike most people, I sometimes post good work, other times medium or bad. Posting our work for critique is a means of getting it evaluated with the aim to improve. Of course there are a few people like David McCracken that don't have anything but excellent work to propose for critique (sic), but in that case why bother !! As for shadows, we all produce them other than ghosts apparently, but then I have not succeeded in photographing any until now. I have never heard that shadows should be left out in photography, frankly I find the idea just plain comical. Yes Alon, this is a copy and paste affair.
Idea... Hi John. It's a nice idea but as others have pointed out the masking doesn't quite work. I think you could get a better result and save yourself some trouble by photographing her with a (different) picture in a frame on the wall behind and then all you have to do is put your Warhol-style pic into the frame with PS. In fact it's such a good idea I'll probably do it myself !!! Best wishes, Jonathan
I agree with David, my eye is definitely focused on the tryptych.
fwiw I actually think the tryptych on its own would work well!
I like her pose that reminds a statue and colors are very nice.
