Hi Marco, we have lots of this type of statue here in Bali. You certainly have filled the frame with the image of the statue however the white bright areas especially around the nose are burnt out resulting in a very high contrast shot. Try underexposing slightly to tone down the bright parts. A good effort and well done.

An ideal subject for black and white! Well spotted.

Thanks for the comments, guys. I know, I was actually aiming for some contrast, but I always have problems with those blown-out highlight things!

Hello again Marco, thanks for the constructive critique point. In addition to underexposing the shot to reduce the bright highlights, (which we all have to be careful of), you can also use an ND, (Neutral Density), filter to tone the image down and reduce the bright spots. These filters come in a variety of strengths so check them out to find which suits you the most. I use an ND8 myself.

Best of Luck,
Joe

I use FILM Marco- so if I do prints in the darkroom with my Dad we can darken bits down easily ! Good effort though.
