    Still too warm for my liking - most continuous lighting (tungsten etc) runs at about 3300 Kelvin, which is really quire warm. It has served to make a her a little too "Cheryl Cole".

    Also, watch the hotspot on the cheek - if you're going to meter a shot like this, you must do so at the point of incident, where the light intersects with the subject at the first point of contact, otherwise you'll get over exposure and hotspotting.

    Finally, either do away with the sheet, or get her further from it - it is creased an distracting. If you can;t get it flat, use a really shallow DOF and get it out of focus.

    Seems like a big critique, but I love looking at new portraiture, and I think you've composed both the model and the image very well.

    as far as I know! I give a 100% money back guarantee on all of my photography work, and they haven't asked for a refund...

    Great shot - I just wish the horizon was level - I know it's really nit-picky, but I think it would have made all the difference. Will upload a mod to see what you think.

    Hi Gav,

    It's a nice capture, no doubt, but I think you've ruined the image by being too heavy handed with the vignette. The guy in the background is definitely a distraction, but not nearly as much as the black oval around the image.

    Have you though about either:

    a: Using a square/rectangular vignette tool - I use Tiffen DFX for most vignetting, and you can adjust it to just creep into the edges, creating the "draw" to the centre, without it noticably being there.


    or

    b: Use the burn tool on a low opacity and create the vignette yourself, just towards the edges and corners.

    Still get's a vote from me because I think the image is good, but one of my biggest bug-bears is over-processing, of which you are guilty here.

    Would love to see the untouched original - can you upload it as another version?

    Thanks Trev - totally agree. unfortunately, the beads are the point of the image, them being part of the client's catalogue.

    I agree with Eviscera above - would love to have seen this as a square crop with a slightly more dominant clock, but I have to say that's being ultra nit-picky. It is still an incredible piece of art, and I'd love to put it on my wall!

    Well done.

    How does one get identified as a terrorist paedophile?

    Man: "What are you doing?"
    bloke: "Photographing buses".
    Man: "Oh my God! Grab your kids and run. He's got a Lowepro rucksack..."

    Probably my favourite portfolio on EPZ. Wonderful images. A great eye for detail, superb style, and immaculate processing.

    Hugely impressive PF. I get excited if I get a readers choice, and blown away by an HC. To have 1 EC would be Out Of This World. 10 is just greedy...

    Oh, to have half your talent.

    very very good portraiture - not quite sure why you're still classing yourself as "amateur" though...
