  • Ready for Action

    After a couple of will I or won't I's and a look at your gallery, I will make some observations on how the scene affects me. They are not criticisms and I am unable to download the image to try the concepts but here goes-
    Do the RHS and LHS add anything to the image? If they were not there would it still be a great image? For me a portrait crop would strengthen the image.
    If you decide I am wrong on the crop, would toning down the yellow flowers accentuate her face?
    Would opening up the shadow area inside the stone culvert add some extra third dimension?

    My only real niggle is a couple of hot spots, particularly her left arm.

    Aleisha has beautiful eyes and it would be great if you could get hr in the studio......john

    Lovely girl and nice image. Two things which are easily fixed pull the eye away from her face. Her right hand is the brightest part of the image and could be toned down. Easy in mono where you do not have to get the skin tone right.
    It is closest to the light of course so it will be brighter.
    The other niggle is the lump or bump on her left elbow. Again easily fixed......john

    I like it. Looks minimal post processing and nicely lit. One tiny niggle easily rectified is the shine on the tip of the nose. I would touch that up and that is all.
    Really well done...john

    Love the eyes. Nor sure what the black is in her nostril? Is it shadow? I would be strongly tempted to ameliorate it in some way as it detracts from the image in my view...john

  • Nude with Hoop 2.

    The concentric circles of the arm cupping the breast and the hoop work beautifully here...john
