    Default After a good Cry

    Hi all,

    Here is a pic of my son, Hann...."After A Good Cry"....I was trying to capture his wet looking eye lashes....but it seems like only the effect (lashes stick together) is left, but the wet look is not very obvious....

    Please give me your comment.

    Thank you for viewing.

    Oh no...now I am viewing from my company's monitor, my Hann's pic is too bright!! I had the same prob when I was doing my Hann's shilouette pic too .....Oh, I must go home and tune up my monitor brightness more (personally I dun like bright monitor when working on PC, except photography).....always forget to tune it back.

    Think the pic looks bad enough that no 1 comments.....

    Sorry guys, I have to make changes to the pic, then re-post...

    Thanks blazer_workz,

    Actually I PP the pic abit to hightlight more no the eye.....but since it is too bright, the effect is lost.....I am quite sure its my home monitor too dark as my other post was not meant to be this bright too.... I mean for it to be like in Zone III (dark enough with some details).

    And thanks for your comment! Please come back and have a look to see if you like the re-touch pic, when I post it up again.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys, think by adjusting the monitor brightness can do the job, please adjust your monitor brightness till only the right foot of the rabit can be seen and half the rabit is in shadow. So I am not re-posting liao....I actually highted Hann's left eye to draw more attention on his wet eye lashes....is it decernable? Please give me your comments.

    Thank you very much!

    your exposure looks ok on my screen

    nice tones, compo could be better

    is your son reaching for the rabbit?
    because his arm leads my eye to the direction of the rabbit.

    Hi ortega,

    Thanks for viewing and giving your comments. My son was crying and final fell asleep. He wasn't reaching out for the rabbit....just that his hand is in this position. So his hand distracted your vision toward the rabbit rather than my intended capture of the eye lashes huh? Can you advise how would you shoot this pic with my intention on the lashes? I dare not move him as he may start crying again

    Thanks!

    i find the picture a bit too grainy for an ISO400 setting, not that it matters for this picture. the exposure looks ok on my screen.

    Thanks toffeespin for your help to verify the exposure. I am using S3 IS, not DSLR, therefore, it will be more noisy due to its small sensor size of less than 6x4.5mm.....

    Any advise to improve the pic in terms of composition? Ortega say there is room for improvement....but I think he has missed out my reply....

    Hi Lastboltnut, I'm no expert on composition and I dont know how our fellow CSer interprets pictures. So cant speak for him.

    But I do notice that you angle the picture such that your son's arm roughly "dissects" the picture lengthwise. Not sure if this works for everyone. But hey, in art and in photography, no one has to agree or please everyone.

    a picture tells a story and every element in your image will play a part in this story.
    when i first view your picture, my eye will focus on the wet eyelashes and then go up his arm and finally onto the rabbit.

    it is just the way my eye sees your image.

    i would try a composition that has the reason of his crying and try to add it in to finish the story. i do not know what you have there at that point but every shade and line will more or less lead the viewers eye around.

    try looking at paintings and take notice what your eyes looks at first and where and how it travels around the frame. also does each focal point add to the image?
    i hope it helps
