Hi, just wanted to seek critique for my photo...


Entitled "Reach OUT..."​

Taken at my cousin's wedding, with my nikon D80 and 50mm f/1.4

I'm wondering if its over photoshopped? and what do you think of the position of the title within the photo?

thanks!

i had some starring an tilting of heads before i could tell whats he or she is reaching out to... so yeah i think its over processed.

imo, its too overly cluttered. i was staring at the legs before i realise that there is a hand reaching out. Had it been the title i would know had known wat this pic is about. And the highlights of the dropped flower petals seem too much.

this is a high contrast black and white pic and it set my heart thumping;) when i first saw it... cz its a pic of beautiful hands and legs of women:think: i am not a leg man or a hand man;) but i can imagine the women must be beautifully dressed for the happy occasion.... the unusual extra fore ground is really not doing much fr the rest of the pic:think:can be easily cropped.positioning of the title within the photo is perfect to me...

yeah, i got inspired by some of the high contrast b/w pictures that i've got to make one myself... i was wondering.. should i have added in some noise? or would it be better without any?


oh the extra foreground is actually quite a beautiful design actually... thought that it would lead people's eyes to the subject...

it does not matter what processing you do, if the picture is not sound in the first place; the clutter is too overt; adding noise will not resolve this problem

concentrate on getting the shot right first and foremost, previsualise every picture you shoot, and it will eventually come naturally - your post processing will also become part of the flow, as you know very well what you want out of the frame when you have pressed the shutter button.
