This image is of my friend Fabrice. He looked past me to catch the eye of his girlfriend. One of those moments in time that captures an expression .

Nice sympathetic portrait. I uploaded a mod with a small contrast adjustment and lightening of the eyes: he has detail in his face that could have been brought out more with the use of a coloured filter, but it is pretty good as it is.

Hi again Bernie.

It appears a little underexposed to me, so Im not certain if youve done any post processing to achieve a particular look.There also no exif data available so I dont know you shot settings


I like the pose, though I think it can benefit with a tighter crop; Ive brightened the face, and lifted his eye detail assuming you didnt do anything special in processing.

Great eye contact, and having him look just behind works very well.

I hope this is helpful for you,,- and since this is a new format, click the modifications tab at the top to see any mods performed.


Best regards


Wille

A nice natural portrait but your tones/mono conversion have a real problem. Both mods are better but not right.

The whole effect is as if a mid grey filter has been overlaid right across the image. Very strange - not just contrast. Show us your colour original to see if that tells a story, or if your mono conversion is the problem. It looks like only one channel from RGB has been used.

Ah yes I can see what you mean, I will up load the original colour photo. I think the issue may be down to the very soft light and sitting under a conopy and so naturally the light was quite diffused hence the lack of contrast in the image. I did very little post processing apart from change to mono. Thanks Willie and Paul again for your real expert comments its again much appreiciated, and thanks Mark for your mod. All brilliant stuff.

nice pose but face is totally in shadow and eyes need to be more in focus and slightly higher. Whoever did that modifiation has made a good improvement. I've just done a quick edit on picnik with a square crop, increased exp and slight sharpening.

The third mod is the best, but there is still that greyness in the skin and it's an effect I'm not used to seeing, so I'm not being very helpful. Will look at the colour version.
