    This is a gorgeous photo (well done for getting in shot in just 10 seconds!). I love the colours and the silhouette you've made. Brilliant!

    Hi Raff, welcome to EPZ! Smile

    A lovely photo to start off your portfolio with. As you've ticked the 'Allow Modification' box I've had a bit of a play with it.

    I felt the image was a little flat, so the first thing I did was to take it into Photoshop Elements 9 and adjust the 'Contrast/Lighting'. I also gave it a 'crop' (I felt the wall area on the left was quite 'empty' and didn't add to the beauty of your model) and a slight 'sharpen'.

    I also used the 'Heal' tool and removed a few eye catching 'bits' (there was a twig in the foreground and a pale post in the background). All these adjustments were minor, but I think there has been an improvement - I hope you think so too! Smile

  • Your nature shots are what I aspire to! Such wonderful clarity over a wide range of subjects - a gorgeous portfolio.
    Thank You! Smile

  • The quality of your photographs is amazing. Each and every one brilliant, clear and sharp. Your work is an inspiration, one I hope I will attain in the future.
