    Default Does this processing work?

    I was just playing around with Photoshop experimenting with different types of processing. I finally arrived with something that I like. Would like to get some comments on this kind of processing if it works for some magazine style kind...

    I am using someone's else photo as an example, attaching the before and after here.

    Speaking of ART is USELESS if one cannot FEEL anything.

    Looks more suited for themes involving darkness or something emotive.

    Based on the model's facial expression, the unedited photo looks more suitable

    Maybe you should choose another photo to demonstrate the potential of this processing method.
    For this picture, it doesn't work.

    Hi Zeckson, I think the PP mood is not appropriate for this shot and the lady skin tone has little megenta tone....very lack of life.

    Mood aside, for the PP, think you have to watch out her hands....all the excessive shadow has made her arms look rough and "hairy" feel....no offense, just what I feel.

    The only thing that worked for me was that the distracting background removed in black at the back.... the original skin tones is still more pleasing to the eyes... .. my take.

    Yea liked the original as well based on this context. Your PP might work if the theme is gothic or if you just wanted to isolate your subject

    The pic on the right makes the model's arm looks weird and the face scary.

    The right-hand-side photo would have made a good gothic themed shot... but the pink ruined it.

    critique is a two way process, and will only work when both sides put in the effort.

    since TS has not responded for more than a week, thread will be closed.
