  • The Perfect Housemaid

    Thanks, dudler! I've had the idea floating around my mind for years but this was the first time I was able to try it. It had the model in hysterics when I told her my idea.

    Thanks! I felt they said far more than the far-away look on her face.

    If you want to see more of my stuff - including Nikki, my tattooed model - I've just started putting it on a closed group page on facebook. The group is called Confidential Exposures and I'll be posting Adult work that would break the Facebook nudity rules .. Feel free to navigate there and ask to join the group!!

    Thanks for the comments. I deliberately focused lower down and limited DOF

    This is probably going to be my last upload until mid-June.

    Thanks for your comments.
    As soon as I walked into the room I knew I had to photograph her under that picture.

  • The Wreck Of The SS Dicky

    Thanks for those comments - well, I'm assuming dudler's comment was not a criticism! This is the wreck of an iron steamboat that ran aground at Caloundra (Queensland) in the 1890s. It keeps changing in appearance as sand is swept up onto the beach by the tides or dragged back off. Plus, of course, the ongoing corrosion makes it's own changes.

    Am I allowed to vote twice? Simply beautiful/ Love the light and those huge reflections in the eyes.

    You're looking at the picture upside down, Francisg.

    Speaking of Easter and eggs, please visit my gallery and go back in time to find a young lady who had quite an encounter with some chocolate!

    Montage made in seconds using Tych Panel 2. It's a Photoshop Extension.

  • The Look (2)

    I think its a combination, Dudler. Take a look at my previous version of "The Look" shot with a different client. I was very pleased with that until I saw this one. I'm sure the eye makeup is significant. The bustline is critical too. Would you believe that she was getting a boob job a few days later? Silly girl. Anyway, thank you for your kind comment.

  • Bringing up the rear

    I gave it a vote but looking at this and some of your others I do think you should often take a lower viewpoint. It lengthens legs among other effects (look at your previous shot of these two girls).

  • dimly on the stairs

    So simple, but stunning

    Interesting "new take" on an old subject. Well done!

  • Spring forward into Summer

    Try applying a Levels adjustment to brighten it up significantly

  • Bottom C

    True, but "Bottom, see" isn't half such fun!!

  • Blue Complexity

    Sorry, but I don't understand the title, although if the image were inverted in Photoshop it would come out blue-ish and white. That said, I do quite like it. What is the subject, please?

    Simply beautiful.

  • Jen In Mono

    I very very gently darkened the corners with a brush with a huge amount of feather. It's undetectable on my screen at any magnification. However, by the time it reached the ePhotozine gallery it looked like a badly executed piece of work. Sorry!

  • Woodhorn Collery

    Well seen! It's very effective in this crop

  • I Love Chocolate Spread

    No, sadly I had to let her do it herself!

  • Velvet

    Lovely shot. For my taste even the applied colour was just right.

    Thanks All. John
    PS Did I say that Abbie is my granddaughter?

  • Old meets New

    I'm sorry, but for me this represents a lost opportunity.

    I made a quick screen grab and spent less than a minute in Photoshop as follows:
    Edit>Transform>Perspective to get all verticals vertical
    Levels adjustment to brighten and add a bit of contrast
    Curves adjustment to add a bit more contrast. At this point the sky/cloud reflection positively sang
    Finally, I added saturation to the foreground and the old building. Stunning photo now

    Then I deleted it.

    But give it a whirl.

    And I'm sure she'll love it! Well seen.

  • Rothenburg ob der Tauber

    I feel there's too much empty foreground that you could easily crop. Some work around the horses could bring out more detail and create a more interesting, vibrant image.
