This is a shot of my eldest son taken outside villa on recent hols , normal when i try to take his photo he sticks his tongue out or turns away (something like that) . managed to get this shot using my new 400 lens , gave him a quick shout and sniped him from a distance , caught his natural teenage frown pretty well . Have modified in elements mostly to loose alot of those teenage spots , might have pushed the processing a bit to far , any advise welcome , thanks for taking a look

A very nice portrait.
The skin does look a tad over-smooth but if you hadn't mentioned it I wouldn't have noticed. I think the overall high-key effect makes it less noticeable, but it would not harm to pull it back a bit.

Great Dof and loads of detail. He still has the daemonic twist to his eyebrow Wink I think his skin is a tad over-smoothed as he's a young man, not a lassie and you can see by the hair further back that the DoF should render more skin detail which makes it seem a little unnatural. Knowing the challenge you were up against though, I'd say it was great work to achieve this! Look forward to seeing you at the weekend and you can update me on scans etc.

I can't add anything else, Kel - mikehit's reference to 'high-key effect' is the second time I've seen that today - I know what it means now and I do like it very much!
There's always something new to learn on EPZ!!
Regards,

Richard

A good shot Kel I used to have the that problem with my Son but now I have it again with my 17 year old grandson. I think my son may appreciate his old photos now as he no longer has the hair.Smile Generaly at there age they don't need much processing it's just catching them is good enough.Smile
Regards John.
