More Courtney - just stumbled upon a folder called borders and textures on my C drive... so thought i'd have another go at applying one

Note that courtney is unaffected by the texture as I masked her out of that layer.

dunno... not sure the texture adds much here. wouldn't mind seeing a before version. Also don't really think the grungy and almost glowing bg colors - which is an editing choice - go with the more natural look of the model. It's a bit too much of two conflicting styles in one picture. the texture still being on the model's legs just bothers (me) tbh.
It's quite eyecatching as a whole, so it should fare well, but I think it misses the mark

Lol...i have given you the award to the flash lighting category for brilliant exposure as well as for your clever idea and composition, last but not the least it is brilliant portrait as well as a brilliant composition, i have been searching, to your original a shadow area at the bottom right corner is visible...

prefer the one shot without any of that texture nonsense Tongue
but even there the the way the lighting seems to have a different effect on legs (darker and yellow-ish) and upper body (pale) feels a bit too unbalanced.

no no that is not the way as i have specified, you can find faults to any images if you interpret it carefully, the fact, i have been following is that whether it is not possible to give the image an award to everyone, and the clever idea as have performed here should not be depreciated, the image itself is no doubt very good, if the fault is not apparent to me at the first glance, i am really trying to give it...

composition does not mean to follow it blindly, it is based on the human psychology, tackle it psychologically to a given condition...

Well, I like it! Smile Preferably without the texture, but then I feel the texture thing is overdone in a lot of shots nowadays. Its becoming so common its a bit "passe".....but thats a personal opinion. Done right, it can be really effective. But I much prefer a more "natural" shot and the original has a grittiness, a starkness and a sharpness that really works with the surroundings. I would never say using a texture is covering mistakes or bad photography (unless it obviously was, which this isn't) and can add to an image if the image is meant more as digital art rather than photography. But your photography more than stands up on its own Ade, as its creative, well shot, sueprbly lit, composed and put together to give a good pro look to it and doesn't really need the embellishment in my eyes. Its very much a personal taste thing and I can see the appeal....but your photography in my eyes really doesn't need it. You have a "style" that really speaks for itself....I think you should let that be your calling card and not fall into the crowd with the textures..... Smile

Blimey, that was a rant wasn't it? lol! Smile Love the V2 shot here....great leading lines into her. It looks almost a candid "between" shot, which gives it a naturalness that I really like. Great tones with that light too.....love it!

it will be like that, I had the light in a high position looking down on to her, so the light higher the body is more intense than at the feet/legs. The light down there was more like the ambient in the tunnel
