    Default ~Lost~



    1. What area is critique to be sought?
    - Overall but am hoping more on B&W conversion Processing.

    2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    -Mood of the picture, the black and White conversion

    3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    - The Picture was taken in a busy street in japan. There was this lady who was standing there therefore i attempted to capture the contrast between moving and stationary.

    4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture?
    - I like how the lady stands out in the middle of the picture therefore i added a little colour for her.

    nice.. you can give it a try, i think if you crop away the top part with all the buildings it will help... like bring the focus down to the lady... use a tighter crop... to make it more crowded in a sense, busy street no space kinda thingy

    I feel the image is stronger without the spot colour which is gimmicky IMHO

    I agree.

    I think the creative use of vignetting would work a lot better.

    i think selective color has been overused to the point where even when it is effective and can be effective, it is hard to be used... since it has the stigma of being the first thing most people play with in photoshop.

    i would make this full bnw, and then go for a panoramic crop. ideally, i would find a better centre of focus, the lady bores me, to be honest.
