Another natural light portrait at high iso - should've used a bit of fill flash...
Quote: should've used a bit of fill flash
Tend to agree with that, A little hint of flash bounced from within the room, Would no doubt have lifted some of the shadows a tad.
That said its a pleasing image that looks great in mono.
I might have been tempted to play with the crop and the verticals of the window frame, You could loose a little of the right hand side, Straighten the sill a tad, But centralise the " Bay " ...!!!
Take a little of the top as well, Kinda tidy up the window bars.
These are all tiny things that in the great scheme of things don't detract from the base image, But might help to enhance it further.
Picky git, Yep! Thats me.....LOL.....
In this instance you have done the right thing by exposing for the model and blowing out the outdoor scene, it makes the model stand out from the background, also nice to see a model with her clothes on for a change
I tend to agree with everything that already been said.
I think Terry's right about making the model so obviously the most important part of the shot and Vince also speaks sense when he suggests a general 'tidying up'. I'm with him too when he says a little flash would lift the image a little.
The thing that struck me the most though, when I first saw it wasn't the ways in which it might be improved, and there aren't many, but the presentation and composition.
It's a refreshing change to see a well composed and orchestrated, traditional, almost formally posed portrait.
Despite my (hopefully moderate) criticism, I like this very much.
Enough, in fact to apply my User Award.
Thanks everyone - this was taken with the aim of being a formal B&W portrait. The street scene was overpowering so delib blew out the sky.
Am inspired by Jane Bown et al - so try and avoid flash if I can.. The crop is deliberate but will try the suggested crop and post for you.
Thanks for taking time to comment, and for the award..
