The Game

A follow on from yesterday ... thought the blown highlights and high impact feel of this one might encourage a bit of discussion in the same way as yesterdays ... Smile

Thar' she blows. Lol but if you cloned out all those highlights you'd have nowt left.

Spot on for me as it is Dan. I just like the bright golden lightliness of this, plus your crop to include so much of the background. It does have that cinematic feel to it, and there's a hint of the Julia Roberts in your model too.

love it lots. im a bit of a fan for pushing the boundries, (those that dont vote just because of the "blown highlights" have no creativity!!!) and thats me being polite!

stunning colours too! bet it would look great about A1 size.

Nice.. I think having her tilt more towards the high ligths and catching some more eye and inside of the glasses would also look good... maybe... [edit.. nah.. looks great large.. my idea was ***** Smile]

The highlights are great.. they give a really nice effect to the edges of the structure.

The blown highlights work much better in this shot for me as they are consistent across the whole shot and not just focused in one small place.

with them being across the whole shot the model is still very much the main focus & the high lights make the whole picture more dynamic in all areas and not just in one place.

Well done spot on

Blown highlights arent a problem but the pose of the model doesnt have the same impact for me as yesterdays by a long chalk but when you have that lovely golden light you keep banging out the frames I know I would when you have a great model this light and a perfect backdrop your bound to get a percentage of gem's a few average and the odd duffer, this one falls into the average for me compared to yesterdays if I'm honest.

Thanks for the opinons and comments ... as expected this has done poorly .. which is a shame ... I too felt the same as you Pooch about this shot but I slowly realised that I actually liked it more than yesterdays postings ....

Mainly because its the less obvious shot and because it definitely has that movie stills quality to it. Yesterdays is still one I love but this is probably the one that would end up on the wall .... part photography part art ... and as we all know arts subjective at the best of times Wink
