this was taken at a 1940s weekend i got the girls to stand like this and with the uniforms i thought sepia would give it an age thing.

Lefthand, sharp face - at a slight angle to us but eyes gazing directly at us.
Background, softer girl - facing straight towards us but looking very slightly away.
I love that tension! Plus the other contrasts - the straight tie and crisp shirt, and the slightly untidy, crumpled look; pretty eyes, intelligent eyes. Two very different characters.
Intriguing image, gave me a lot to look at and think about.

This works really well and Moira has said all that needs to be in my opinion.

Very nice image. Sepia works well too. Be careful with eyes when using sepia, as it can kill sparkle and catch-lights.

Uploaded a minor mod, cropped space at the top slight rotation, removed black side bars, restored bright spots in the eyes just a little.

Good work,


regards

I'm not sure about the girl in the background. I did a mod to isolate the front girl, lightening slightly to make her eyes more arresting. For me, the other girl is unnecessary, and I would prefer her to be either sharp, or more blurred - here she is a bit in between, but I think the front girl is the picture.

Also, you need to be careful with the cloning on the right - the repeated pattern of the brickwork is obvious!

Good, but not in the same league as your last one. The intention may be dark and dismal to suite the period, but a little brighter on thd nearerface would be better. Sepia is good, but reduces contrast as there is no black so the tonal range compresses.

I'm not sure about the second face at all. It becomes a distraction, yet, in a way, is a stronger face. I think I would prefer exactly this composition without the second face.
