You've got a really 3D effect on the model here Gregor and she certainly stands out from the background. Me, I like the colourful backdrop.

Cheers, Dave.

I really like this series of shots - not sure that I prefer the blur - even though the photographer in me tells me I should. Maybe a bit less blurred - not sure. Model is stunnning and has lovely eyes. You have done her proud Gregor. Mark

I agree with all of the last comment; I think a touch less blur plus possibly a little less saturation in the background - for me. Beautiful, nevertheless.

I like the backgrounds both ways, although maybe a touch less blur than you have here. I certainly wouldn't desaturate the background. You could consider shooting your lovely model with her wearing less colourful clothes if you wanted her to stand out without blurring the background. Works well though and it's a great series.

Yep, I like this one. Maybe a touch too much blur and keep the colour. PAul

No Gregor, do not desaturate it. It is colourful and works well as a bg and allows the lovely model to take centre stage. Well done, for this and others in the series.

Lovely model (love her eyes) and beautiful clothes.

make a copy of the background, then desaturat the oridginal background + high contrast, then mossion blur the copy of the background. overlay may work nice with this in layers.

nice shot anway.

well done IAJACKS

Great shot, the blurred background works well as it makes the model stand out more. Another superb image in this series.

Good colours and blurred background. Only problem with an f stop like that is of course, that the lens is not at it's sharpest. You see that in the model's face arms and hands. I do think that the pose not all that intersting in this one. Regards, Bert

really like this but wonder how it would look with a bit more contrast on the model. cheers Mike.

LOve this - almost surreal due to the out of focus background. very impressive.

GregorP I think I agree with Xanda. Great shot, but a touch less blur. Great lighting by the way
