Award Shortlist   


By ade_mcfade      
this is another of the shots selected by Courtney for her portfolio - it's more of a classic model shot than the stuff I do i guess.

Very simple really - one light with a mini beauty dish on it - highish up to the left of her.

I was a long way off and down some steps with the 70-200, so the background blurred nicely. then I made it very dark Smile

As I've been very pro this new voting system, I've uploaded it in that gallery.

If you have time and do give it a negative mark, let us now why so I can learn for next time

Not entirely sure about the creasing of the top just above the belt, but not enough to vote this one down Wink

She stands out very well from the background, again if I had to nit pick I would maybe have got her to smooth out the top, but it doesn't detract from a good image.

I was too far away to see the top to be honest - was about 20-30 meters once I'd got down the steps.

Bring down the steps has made this a good one as it gives her added height and leg length as well.

by far one of the better ones. shows that use of textures are a bit of a shame if the environment/bg looks great already. And here, with that metal what's it called on the side combined with the appealing dof it really works. not sure what you did different lighting-wise, but it works much better than in some of the previous shots where the different effect the lighting had on upper body and legs were a bit of an annoyance. And as mentioned, that slightly upward angle really helps a lot too.

How on earth could anyone vote this image with a minus vote? Quite ridiculous. Are you still pro the system? Up vote from me.

Well I'm pro the experimental BETA test - but I'm not over the moon at people giving it a negarive vote with no explanation

At least when I gave a few shots a -1 I gave a paragraph on how to improve the shot

Not something that makes me stop normally as I find it hard to judge a good one from a bad(Quality outstanding that is) in this genree, Not sure wheat made me look twice .
The pose and dominant top colour I believe. My apology if this isn't helpful but thats was what i thought when i passed through, the fact is I like it
