The Wreck Of The SS Dicky by johnp

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.

Try applying a Levels adjustment to brighten it up significantly

Blue Complexity by brianjoyce

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?

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

Old meets New by HuddersfieldHil

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 by seahawk

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.

Painted Lady by johnp

Painted Lady

Thanks, Frink and Dudler. This was the best I could achieve with that lens as it was shot in a very tight space (the landing at her house). Any further back and I would have needed to levitate. Needed that lens to get DOF drop-off/

Emma in White

I hate to say this, but I agree! Looks OK on the 5000 pixel high original file, but squashing it down has b******d it. I didn't check it after re-sizing.

A beautiful image! Well done. Colours to die for. What sort of exposure time did you use?

Natasha #1

Sorry, folks, I uploaded the wrong photo. This is Portrait and Glamour.

(Well, we can't all be perfect all the time!)

Looks like she might have been nude, but was actually totally covered apart from her arms and shoulders.

Fiona ~777 by Simon-Gimson

Fiona ~777

Lovely shot, very natural appearance. Personally I would have shot it on an angle with her head top left and tummy bottom right. Her forearms are pretty much at right angles anyway.
I've just tried copying your image and rotating it clockwise by about 45 degrees and to my eyes the difference was tremendous. (And yes I deleted it when I'd finished!)

Just fabulous! The colours, the crop, the pose, the model. Wow!

Soft in Pink by Hoffy

Soft in Pink

So simple, so beautiful. Just love the pose and the general "feel" of the image. Proves my point that true glamour is more about what you don't see than what you do see. Without the shrug this would have been gratuitous and tacky - covering her has raised the image to the top of the tree. Seductive with a capital S

The Lean by Hoffy

The Lean

Beautiful. Colour version for me because the skin tones are warmer and softer. Could try sepia for the best of both worlds.

Two by Grifoto


A lovely looking girl, but the photo doesn't quite make it. I guess you used a flash - it's left a harsh shadow of her nose on her cheek and one of her face on her hair. Diffused flash - ideally by bouncing off a wall, ceiling, reflector, etc should soften the effect. Or use a reflector to bounce light into the shadows.
The catchlights work wonders for her eyes and "lift" the whole image, making her look radiant.

Seduction by johnp


Thanks, guys. To be honest I'd forgotten that the eyes hadn't been sharpened. I'll post another from the same shoot that will show how Olivia's eyes can positively smoulder!!
