(Struggling to come up with any meaningful titles these days, thought I'd opt for a functional one!)

Model, clothes, hair: Jane Faye

Continuing with shots recently taken at Eglinton Park in Ayrshire, the point of this shot was to highlight the bloomers and the model's hair. How well or how poorly I've achieved that, is up to you - comments, advice and critique all welcome, thanks in advance.

Its difficult to provide a good critique with no exif data provided, so I can only comment on what I see, and not any camera settings.

The intention is to show off bloomers, then this is exactly what this shot is doing, - so mission accomplished.

From a critical point of view though, the first thing I notice is that the rail is not level. This for me is a show stopper right there, - it needs to be absolutely level.

Once leveled, the shot is underexposed a little, needs more detail in the shadows, and can be quite a bit sharper. Some of the lack of sharpness may jusy be down to re sizing, and not applying sharpening to your re sized image before uploading, - something you always need to check.


I would also suggest that the square bridge section protruding from the right side of her waist be cloned out, - or watch for it in the original pose.


Ive uploaded a mod that incorporates the suggestions.



regards


Willie

Thanks Willie,

so obvious when you point out the flaws! Why on earth didn't I see them myself.

OK, - tks. The flash explains the darker background.
