A quick view of salopian's recent activity.

  • Model nude

    Kaybee and Moira have raised some good points for you to consider so I will confine myself to a mod which is just my own idea and not meant to be "better".
    Cropped and rotated a little clockwise then cloned out a few minor skin blemishes, particularly the prominent dark crease at the top of the left thigh which I left in but lightened.. I used levels to warm the image up touch and then applied a small degree of sharpening to bring out the detail in the cape. Finally selected Gaussian blur and applied a very,very light touch - just enough to soften the skin a bit but not enough to lose the cape detail gained by the sharpening.

    What a lovely warm image of a happy young couple - your wife's expression is priceless !
    Sorry I can't offer any critique - too busy basking in the happiness of the shot.

    Many congratulations.

    This is a lovely shot that captures the mood of Autumn beautifully. The slope line coming from the right bottom corner does indeed give it a dynamic feel and the range of Autumn shades is splendid.
    Some may find the shadows slightly dark, but I feel that adds to the dynamic effect you describe and I would leave it just as it is.

    A bit late in seeing this one butt I find it very interesting and rather attractive as it reminds me of my Kodachrome and Fuji days!
    Lots of good technical advice above, but one area that does jar a little is the ugly shadow in the left armpit and breast area and I think Ken's cropped mod sorts this out beautifully.
    As John says, good looking girl and maybe more similar shots in the files?

    May I join in the wave of fond nostalgia ?!. Toured Eire in one of these way back in 1959 with no trouble and later on bought a convertible which again proved reliable. The speedo reading to 80mph is quite optimistic, but the 1000 with the OHV engine was quite lively up to about 65
    Like John, nothing to add photographically except I like the tryptich idea and Moira's interior door handle in particular.

    Glorious shot - brightens up a grey, wet Autumn day! I like Pamela's mod with the cross moved slightly, otherwise I think it's fine as it is.
