Kim

By TrevBatWCC    
A quickie break from Rome! Had a Camera Club model night last night with the lovely Kim here, so thought I'd inflict one of my efforts on you Wink Can't decide whether I prefer colour or mono, so here's both! Smile Taken with my 85mm Micro Nikkor macro lens which is, as well as for macro work, ideal for portraits.

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw and tweaked in Photoshop Elements 11

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

The B and W version is my favourite of the two, Trev: I like the 'pose' if I can use that term, and the tight crop works nicely.

Mono for me, Trev, only because I'm not so keen on the lipstick/hair colour combination.

Has to be mono for me Trev as it takes the bloodshot out of the corner of the eye. Nice light.

I like them both. The colour is contemporary and the mono is very nicely toned. (I think it's toned - it looks it on my monitor).

With the kind of processing youve used, I think the mono works best. I do something similar for my conversions - the colour is often too detailed. A softer version might work better for the colour, but as Chris says, it is very contemporary.
As a portrait, it is nicely shot - good eye contact and composed well.

Mono for me Trev...........John
Super portrait Trevor.
Beautiful model, excellent focus on the eyes.
Iím more comfortable with the BW version.

A wonderful portrait Trev, superbly contrived. The mono version certainly caught my eye.

Mono for me Trevor but feel both are a little hard or sharp as a portrait image, try putting a GBlur layer on ( set the blur to about 10) and then set the opacity to 20% and then rub the eyes and mouth through. might work, see what you think
Regards Richard

Thanks for your advice, Richard. I did actually add some blur to soften the skin tones (and iron out a few spots and pimples!) but let the eyes and mouth to come through - perhaps I need to add a bit more! Wink
It's good to have to some feedback, especially as I'm not expert at portrait photography.
