Another version of the previous shot, this is the one my son picked out. He was critiquing the shots for me and liked the eyes in this one. He also picked the variants. His main critique of this was that it's a bit too high key.

I read about this while I've been lurking on the tt forum recently.
I think cyclists in general will prefer to buy a calendar in this style than one filled with cycling on DC's (LOL)
This is good Sarah, V2 for me as it has more 'pop' to it.

Good luck with the project, and have a cool yule : )

Thanks for the comments.

Thanks Andy, and yes, this has proved popular on the TT forum and got a few more interested. We now have 2 sponsors and 14 models, so hopefully it will work out Smile

Have a great Christmas and 2009 Season.

There's a nostalgic 70's feel to this trio upload Sarah, & the models pretty too, but I need my sunglasses on to enjoy it, now where did I put them.............

Yes, they are just a bit too high key, next session, that's something to sort out.

Not so. You've just under or overexposed it. I know that sounds daft, but when working in high key, the two manifest themselves in very similar ways. This is probably over, as there is a little light bleed around the edges of her hair.

Just add a little contrast Sarah, and lower the brightness.

V2 for me, because it looks bang on exposure-wise, and therefore jumps out at you. I know you've tried to hold this back to try and match it up with your template shot, but that was taken using pastel colours, and rather than allowing the light to soften it, they used a guassian blur.

V2 for me it fills the space better a tighter crop than 1 & 3 making it more interesting.
