Award Shortlist   


By JackAllTog    
One of my Nieces at the end of a long shopping trip (new hat) with much to much attitude for someone who has only just moved to middle school.
Tried a very light HDR style look and pulled a couple of the more extreme LR sliders back for what I hope she will like as a funky look.

I recognise that attitude. I've got one just like it in year six.

As for the shot, it's good but the shadow?

agreed - i hate shadows, but as lots of shots seem to have shadows nowadays i thought i'd give it a go. thanks for that feedback Smile
I might ask this as a forumn question some time - a poll on shadows.

Nice one Stuart, i think the shadows work well, good to see something different and very creative.
Well done.

Quote:lots of shots seem to have shadows nowadays

I think that you could well have a very valid point there Stuart.

I don't really do 'proper' portraits, all of mine tend to be outdoor shots of my Chloe but I do take the occasional indoor one and it's something I'd quite like to take more seriously.
With my well documented disregard for anything resembling conformity to the so-called rules of composition, including shadows is something that I'd probably go for.

The forum idea's a good one. It'll end in a row, of course but you'll get some sensible answers to begin with!

Good image Stuart, and I rather like the shadow
but if you don't want the shadow, if she steps away from the wall more..shadow disappears too
if you re-angle yourself too look where the light is

Like the attitude and styling Stuart, not sure the post processing either.

Great portrait Stuart. However the check shirt in conjunction with the shadow, made me think I was seeing double.
