A quick view of ChrisV's recent activity.

    It has an artificiality and formality to it [and I mean both those things as compliments] that elevate it well above the pack. It works beautifully- the model, hairstyle and lighting are superbly fitting. Great shot.

  • All the Dead Things

    Yeah, I too am very ambivalent about this and that's perhaps it is because it is ostensibly an 'attractive' image and a very dark subject.

    ...as for rescuing the title and visual metaphor suggest it's a bit late for that. Great execution [certainly no pun intended there] at any rate.

    I imagine there's some sort of undiscriminating policy on nudity - I can't personally see why it is being applied here and I share your indignation that this should somehow be classified as 'adult'.

    It's a very poignant image - is that the name she's known by locally?

    How appalling obvious and exploitative. I shall have to bookmark your portfolio page to refer examples of such grossly sexual imagery so I can um, remind myself, that, er, it's bad and stuff.

    We must all suffer for our art. Blush

  • The Shard at night

    It would be perfect if you could just have moved the Shard a bit to the right so all the perspective lines converged - remiss of you. Seriously - this is a superbly executed shot and well spotted on the location. The deserted street keeps a formal clarity about this - I'm sure the architects would be pleased with this showcase of their work.

    You're also [very] slightly out on orientation - probably less than 1. But the fact the composition is unbalanced [with the Eye occupying the upper left] probably exaggerates that slightly. Drag a guide out against the uprights [if you're using Photoshop] and rotate counter clockwise. That would mean cropping even more of the Eye though - so it's more something to look out for in future.

    With these sorts of shots, even with the virtual spirit levels built into some modern cameras, it's really tricky to get orientation 100% right. You have done very well in avoiding much in the way of lens or perspective distortion.

    Jonathon, you've spoiled an otherwise very good shot by over brightening the whites of the eyes. The fact I know you've done it should be sufficient to tell you it's too much.

  • Lovely portfolio George.
  • Very impressive portfolio, Ade. I missed the mod you took the time to upload on one of my shots, but I wanted to thank you for that.

    It's especially appreciated when it comes from someone who is obviously so good at this game...
