Hmm, second pic is PS-ed? The girl and background seem to have different degree of manipulation.

Nice try anyway, can bump up the colours abit.

the 2nd pic is one pic... i.e taken at the background place.. the noise is because of the embeded water mark of highest visibility... 'bump up the colors' does that mean increase satuation??:what:

nice idea...but i tink u gotta watch the technical stuff abit bro....ya highlights are blown out.... not that there's anything wrong with doing that...but juz that it doesnt seem to work for me in this case....

the first shot would have benefitted with abit more space imho...

cheerios

You're using a 4:3 crop aren"t you?

Your 1st picture makes the model look extremely short. if i had a pick, i'll pick your last one-but you need to make her smile a little.


Keep on trying!:)

#3 is okay... #4 seem a bit flat. Maybe you could try a more angled shot from the side, to bring out her profile. Yeah, a bit more saturation would be nice, cos the green and skintone are actually quite complementary.

Anyway, it's probably because you are hosting on CS's server, so the pic seem a bit unsharp (not sure if CS does compression to the pictures). The border could be a tad too strong, hence making the pic looks small too.

#1...more headroom please? hee...

#2's a little over-exposed on the shoulder...the grip on the border doesn't work here too cuz it's more like gripping a rod or something for her fist to be like that...it works more for #4 if you wan to use those out-of-frame effect...

#3 is not bad but I would say so-so..ask model to pose in such a way that their arm won't be pressed against their body making it look some kinda thick...it's either that or you can take from another angle...you're the painter of your photo bro..heh...

#4's not bad but that copyright logo is distracting man.. :bsmilie:

overall I would say 4/10 for this series...jia you bro! ;)

i was trying a tighter crop for a more focused layout... but jeff mentioned it makes the model look short... :( ha ha... i notice that in fashion mag the crop are quite tight, with little or even no headroom.. (i.e. cutting the head even... ;p ) anyway thank you my dear brothers... will try harder...;)

pns are usually in the 4:3 ratio, while dslr/film are in 3:2 ratio. :)

and iirc, 4R is 6" by 4", so that would also be a 3:2 ratio..

Hey james, haven't seen you for so long! I think #2 works best for me, just that the highlights are blown. I'm not too in line with the hand grabbing border type of PS work too coz I don't think it achieves anything. Keep shooting man!

The way your crop the picture with her finger protruding alittle out of the frame for #4 is interesting, the same doesn't work for #2.
#4 can be crop off more on the left side ( the side you place the copyright)
