Urban Daniel take 2

By Debbiee
Sorry to keep putting these up for critique (and appologies if your getting fed up of looking at my children), but I really value the critque I get and ultimately one day if I can ever afford the equipment, I would love to do portraiture (especially outdoor) on a more professional level.

This is another image from our Urban themed outing, again I couldn't get him to look towards me, very stubborn little man, but I got him to sit nearish to the graffiti. So I composed and took the image as fast as I could, you can see his lip slightly raising as he was starting to grin at his efforts in ignoring mum. Not sure if this works as again there is not a lot of the graffiti in the background but at least with this image you can tell it is graffiti.

Excellent, - the light, tone and colour a lot better than the last one. The expression actually suits the fact that hes looking wistfully downwards.

One thing I noticed when I downloaded it was thats it did not have a colour profile tagged with it, - remember to assign sRGB when you upload. This can make a difference in how the image appears to viewers depending on which web browser they use. the mod has the profile attached.

I make a very small adjustment, and this is in the attached link, - you should give it a try with all of you shots, - it can make a big diference in removing the slightest tone, - and in this shot, its made it a little warmer.

Otherwise I cropped a little, - thats it, no sharpening, nothing.

Very well it and exposed and composed. I really don't mind that he's not looking at the camera - the pose here suggests he's distracted by something and the fact that we don't know what it is adds to the mystery - t's typical of his age..

The curve of the graffiti frames his face well, but i still don't think there's enough to say "this is an urban child shot" - more like a child shot with an urban background. Maybe he just looks too cute Smile

Justmy honest thoughts, hope they're some use

Now you have cracked the exposure - tones of skin and detail excellent. Composition good, but not keen on his head angle and expression.
