By banehawi
Conor, my Grandson showing off some skater clothes. Manipulated perspective to accetuate shows, apparently they are quite important.

Studio flash with lots of reflectors sheets of white cardboard.

Please take the time to view both crops, and let me know which you prefer.

Great perspective. Suits this kind of image like a glove. I find the picture perhaps a bit too narrow though. I think it tends to work better for landscape formats than portrait formats. Still, just a niggle on an overall terrific portrait. Great warm colours too

I really like that narrow crop it draws the eye in more to the subject, ie: the shoes and Dude who is wearing them, if that is what the image is about, then why make it wider ?

I am big fan of brave cops and take this as a useful example.

I bet he liked it too Smile

Ive loaded a more traditional crop as a variant, - let me know which works best.

I wasnt certain about the original crop, - I did want to accentuate the perspective, - but the wider version is good too.

I am an absoloute PS novice but tried a mod to practice with, hope you dont mind, also not sure if I copied it correctly in the first place anyway as the copy was a bit pixellated (my error I'm sure) Smile but here's my take on it.
Thanks for allowing mods

I have found it hard to choose a favourite, but I think it's going to be V1. The work you have done really suits this image, and makes it very viewable, I like the dude title too.
