ProfileLovely model, the bg really compliments her skin tone and hair colour...like the processing on her face , hair etc.

..my only crit...(and its more personal taste) the soft processing is a bit over done on her arms and chest...with her left arm/shoulder a bit too bright compared to her face etc....it wouldn't draw the eye so much if it was the same colouring and brightness as her forehead...IMO.....a minor niggle on a what for me is otherwise a fabulous portrait.

Creevagh Tree I

Creevagh Tree ILike it......looks lovely.....I think you could get away with cropping the top part to just under the sun too...although I like it as it is.

GreenIts a little soft and could do with a sharpen up...I'm not sure compositionally what this photo is about......is it the shape of the leaf or is it the patterns on the leaf ...if its the latter then maybe a tight crop of just the leaf with pattern may work creatively speaking.....you could get a lot more juicy detail from the shot.

I think the bg is a bit messy and needs to be thought through before you took the shot....looking through your PF you have put more thought into other shots....I especially like 'Come Watch My Show'.

focus on ME!

focus on ME!To be honest I think you could achieve a much better shot if you came down to their eye level...I'm not sure why you took this at this angle, its not telling me anything.....I think to achieve a more creative and engaging shot you need to focus on how the dogs move and think about what you would like to capture in the shot before you take it.

Sorry if this sounds harsh but with two very active budding models you could really get some crackers.

Apple of my eye

Apple of my eyeThis is soooo much better than your previous shot of her.I didn't like the other one as I thought it looked amateurish....but this is much more professional and more interesting to look at. Good colour and you have sorted the background shadow..

Red Hot

Red HotI quite like this.....the red on the shoes, drum and various buttons and I like the letterbox format too.

Mind you I'd clone out the trouser led and foot that is poking out between her legs and maybe get rid of the other purple and green on the LHS and the tiny bit of blue above the drum.

Winter Solstice

Winter SolsticeLovely colours and I like the FG....shame the sun is blown...what about a crop under the sun or clone out the glare??? Just a few suggestions.

vulnerableI like her expression and you have definitely conveyed her feeling of anxiety but I have to agree with Jules with this one.....there is clearly a piece on the chin that is suffering from the processing . It looks like its been pasted in and then not blended in ...... and a lot of noise underneath her neck with the colour breaking up and leaving almost posterised effect.

Portrait Vignette

Portrait VignetteWhat a lovely model you have at your disposal......lovely smile, gorgeous skin / hair / eyes........but for me you haven't made the most of her.

I agree with Malcolms post above...its a bit flat and rather than experimenting with light and shadow to capture some artistic merit it looks too much like a posed school photo....sorry if it sounds harsh.

Get closer......focus on her eyes, use DOF to give some drama, position your model in the frame to get a more creative composition...you don't need studio lighting, window light is much more flattering on skin tones..........if your really set on a lighting system you need to light the BG to get the white. HTH


Merry Christmas.

ClaireLovely shot of her......concerning the photo, if it was mine I'd have cropped a couple of inches off the top to almost where her skin starts on her forehead and then cropped from the left almost to her shoulder....I think it would make for a more dramatic comp and get rid of the fuzzy bits ....but its good as it is.

DAs its your first attempt I'll be gentle...Wink You've made a good start ....but...well it is a critique site.....

She doesn't look very comfortable...a little self conscious (the clenched fist, holding herself a little too tight ..She has a nice face so I think you should make more of that.

I don't like seeing all the creases on the back drop ..its too distracting, think about the light and shadow to give a more creative effect.....see Funkledinks PF...he's the master.

Use a larger aperture to achieve depth of field...always focus on the eyes , relax your model and take photo's that show character....

PulpFor me the skin on the RHS ( her left) looks to porous , if it was mine I'd have toned it down a bit
...tiz a bit blotchy in the shadows and for me looks to severe and uneven. She also appears to have a bit of a tash , only on the photo of course, which could be removed with the patch tool.I like the nude lips and the eyes and makeup. Perhaps , as you say, lift the hair a tad.

I like the look and think a tighter crop would give it more impact, say , just above her chest/collar bones and a quarter off the LHS....I may have a play..

young mum

young mumShe's beautiful.......not as engaging as the colour version.

If this was mine I would add a bit more contrast and definition to the eyes as the look a bit soft and could do with mirroring the detail in the hair. IMO.

Glam 2

Glam 2Gorgeous.

.... I'm being picky now but I'd add a bit more black to the bottom of the frame, same amount as above her head.
