Welcome to EPZ William.


This is the type of shot that appeals to me, - its different, and creative. Theres a good sense of chaotic movement, and obvious joy in the face. The colour may not be to everyone's taste, but you like it, and thats what matters.


I have a few suggestions to improve, and or modify the shot:

In mod1, Ive re composed the shot to place the eyes on a third. This is done by a combination of cropping, and adding white canvas, and ends up in a 10 X 8 format. Ive sharpened quite a bit, and added some contrast. I also faded in some white at a low opacity around the shot in general. Note that its important to sharpen youe shot after you re size for the web, - it can lose a lot of detail in compression, so check it and re sharpen as needed.


In mod2, Ive suggested a straight toned mono treatment, and added a small frame for presentation.


I look forward to your future shots, and hope you find this helpful,



Regards




Willie

Wow Thanks Willie, I had thought I would try and get rid of the sharp edge at the bottom, but never thought it would look so much better in B&W. Thanks for taking the time to give this good advice.
I'm not sure yet how to get the white canvas added to the bottom , but I will certainly try as your Mod is an improvement on what I thought was one of my best images, so yes I find this very helpful and I will be back.

Regards.

Bill.

If you have Photoshop, its Image>canvas size, and you can then select all sides, height only, width only, or height or width in one direct only, specify the number of pixels to add and the colour, click OK.
