Ella's Eye

By RWPhotoGraphix  
Taken whilst my Eldest Daughter was looking out in the garden, no photoshop work other than the text, everything else done in raw!
quite proud of this photo and having stayed mostly away from photoshop!
Thanks for looking

Love the way you have captured Ella's eye ball, it's inner sanctom and outer reflection

EXCELLENT WORK
Hi.. I really adore this photo.. Did you have to focus on the eye only or did you take a full portrait and then crop? Do you shoot all images in RAW?

The colours and detail in the eye make this for me. One small change would be to clone out that bottom left black hair that's a slight distraction, not enough to stop the PA though.

I prefer the background colour of version 1 but the eye editing on version 2, mix those and it's sorted! great work
Thankyou Everyone!! Smile

Quote:Soft tones and processing here, I love this metallic blue look.

Not being a portrait photographer myself I appreciate it none the less. I would perhaps clone out that rogue hair in the bottom left. I like the feel and context of this shot, despite my lack of knowledge in this subject area...



Thankyou for your pro Critique David Smile and thankyou to everyone else who has voted/commented!! You have all made me a happy man Smile
