    Thanks all Smile

    I was debating with myself about the speck in his eyes whether or not I should leave it in as it is something permanent that he has had since he was born, I think it's a birthmark (although doctors haven't confirmed this they just brushed it off when I mentioned it and said its nothing) that is the reason I left it in as it is part of him, something distinguishable about him.

    thank you again, I do agree with the comments about the dragan effect probably not for child portraits, having looked at his site I noticed he has used this on child images but I found them very disturbing and really don't want to view them again. however his photos of older gentlemen are very good and powerful images, so although I didn't like the results of this process on Daniel, the techniques did help me to produce this portrait and I believe the conversion is stronger then other black and white images I have produced. Thank you all again for your time and critique

    Its really difficult to choose between them, I like them both paige is a fantastic little model I don't always comment but have always viewed your images of paige and feel like I have seen her grow up, your images of her are inspirational and I only hope that with practice I can start to get images like this of my own two, it must be so difficult deciding which one's to display on your walls

    I think I like v2 but have to say they are both equally very good so its a difficult choice

    Thank you, have just tried your suggestion and it does make the image stonger, comments like this are why I love this site, I have a BTEC National Diploma in photography and the first year of a degree and a simple compositional rule like this was never mentioned or taught to us, obviously we did learn some things about composition rule of 3rds etc but I learn so much more from people here.

    Thank you all again for you time and input, I think the exposure being under is my processing, i shoot everything in raw and in processing the image i took the exposure down a bit to what i thought would give it a more dark look, for the feel of the image i wanted. I re-processed it after your comments as i agree it does look too under exposed and have uploaded the new version into my portfolio, again thank you for your comments and critique

  • Washed out

    Hi this is a nice setting and a good pose for a portrait, I think that since she is looking to the right I would have placed her further to the left of the image to give her extra space to look into and also you have taken the image in quite harsh sunlight so her hands are almost completely burned out moving the subject out of direct sun or waiting until a later time in the day would have provided a more evenly lit portrait.

    Just another thing, thats really helped me on this site, I nearly always post my images to the critique gallery the guys there who give critique are absolutely fantastic they've helped me come on leaps and bounds pointing out where I've gone wrong and where I can improve whether its with settings, pose background etc, you will get more valuable advice there.

    hope this helps

    This is a stunning shot and I agree with the need for the flower stem because of the angle it was taken from and the dof.

    Stunning capture, very well composed

    brilliant, very authentic looking, you've done a fantastic job on the pose, composition and editing

    Fantastic shot definitely has the wow factor to it, very well composed, and so atmospheric

    I agree with Jimmy about him having a sinister edge to his expression and being very thought provoking, by the look on his face I imagine he has created a very evil crime and you want to know more behind his story. So a very well executed image that tells a story but also leaves some mystery that can be filled in by the viewers imagination.

  • Dandelion

    Very creative and well lit shot, you see so many shots of dandelions that they don't seem to leap out of the page when browsing through the thumbs, but this one did so well done, you've created something different

    Wow fantastic capture, perfect dof. A really stunning capture well done

    Hi Pamela thank you so much for your input I really appreciate it, the only real connection between the face on the rock is that it is also my daughter but photographically I have to agree (looking at it again after your input) it is dominating and doesn't really fit in with the image. and my daughters stance is a little awkward looking. I think this is because the original image was my daughter and the rocks she is holding herself up with her back and feet in the middle of them so probably not the best place to get a natural looking pose. Again thank you so much for your time and critique and I will keep trying, have just had a quick glance at Paree's portfolio and there are some wonderful images in there, will definitely have to go back and have a proper look later when I have more time.
