Inspired by another member, this is a high key shot of a face covered in oil & linseed seeds - Yeah weird, but then i wanted a backdrop and a grave stone offered itsself up. This is not intended to shock, just show a sharp SP with a worthwhile background.

You're way more dedicated than me - I really don't think I'll try this seedy version Smile Can you imagine how long it would take to get those out of my hair!

I'd like to see it on a plain background though - the gravestone is a wee bit overpowering and you blend in a bit too much?

Thnaks for the comment, blending is something i need to learn, i don't yet even understand quite what you mean - i think you mean the background is too strongy shaded compared to the foreground. Nice constructive critique though thanks - i'll dig into this.
Yeah, 'seedy' hadn't thought of that angle - fun though.

Yes I concur with cattyal on this , a plain background would have brought the face out more, more like 3d.

Thnaks guys, much appreciated. I'll try and be less full on with backgrounds.
Cheers

I rather like the way the face blends into the background. Plain background would likely work but then it just be a different picture. This works for me. Smile
