    Canon EOS 400D
    Lens : Canon 75 - 300mm

    Area wished to be critique in: Editing skills and Framing

    (trying hard to get a lil old-ish feel in the picture. like some lost memory. didnt manage to get it anyway.
    and maybe a crop that would be wayy suitable for this scene? suggestions?)

    Hopes for this piece of work: Mother daughter bond. simple as that. but with a touch of the old memory feeling.

    What I think of this shot: One of my greatest shot. A nice milestone.

    I dont see the mother standing thou just joking...

    I like the concept. Framing-wise nothing much to comment. What were you shooting in front of?

    Not everyone will like the blue cast as it brings out the 'coldness' of the shot when the theme if your pic should be a warm one.

    Perhaps, the shot will command stronger attention if we could see the eyes of of the mum and daughter

    hahaa, framed the shot through the water being shot from the fountain.
    hmm the blue tint cast was sorta meant for the water. kinda wanted to be a hmm, far away memory. but i kinda refuse to go b/w. totally hurts the water.
    as for the eys factor. yeah agreed. but ohwell. the girl's eyes are pretty small.

    it is indeed, as others have mentioned, a departure from the norm, and a very nice attempt

    still the way you have handled the colors is bad. the bluish cast does not serve to give out any nostalgia vibes

    blue casts are typically associated with solitude, aloneness, at least that's what i feel, especially when you tone a monochrome picture with it

    here, sepia and desaturation might work to give the feel you want. in any case, i wanted to try a desaturation but have no idea how to remove the color cast you have induced; so i just did a gradient map, some minor tweaks to exposure, and grain:



    actually i think possibly the grain is not necessary

    wow!
    i love the desaturated one!
    anyway, haha i cant seem to figure out what's the thing at the top left hand corner. but ti doesnt look rather bubble-ish and cool though ahha soo i didnt clone it away.

    haha well the grain did give the old-ish feel i was looking for! thanks ahah.

    thanks for comments people!
