    Lovely portrait, Janey.

    The direct eye contact definitely works on this one.

    Best of luck!

    Janey,

    This is the most amazing portrait I've ever seen; as I'm not an e2 member I'll give you a virtual award Smile

    B&W does it for me - absolutely amazing.

    Cheers!

    Edit: Could you by any chance go over your post shot workflow for the benefit of the rest of us?

    Cheers!

    Hi Dennis,

    Thankyou for taking my advice, then PMing me Smile

    This image is so much better than the last one - I'd recommend in future you try to speed the shutter up slightly, which would improve the sharpness of the bike & riders.

    Also, don't forget you can upload a much larger image Smile

    Hi,

    In addition to Jude & CB's comments, you will find that panning images have more effect if the subject (the bike & rider, in this case) have a little breathing room; that is some room infront of and behind it, in the plane of travel.

    Look at my Yamaha image to see what I mean; this is nowhere near perfect - I know how hard it can be to get it spot on.

    Charlie,

    I'd say the sharpness is OK; it certainly looks it on my screen.
    I think it would be a perfect candidate for a selective colour job; it has the majority of the image is bland, so this would become greyscale, but the brightly coloured boats would remain their colours and hence have even more impact.

    I'll try to do you a modification later; I'm not on a PC with Photoshop at the moment.

  • Paul,

    Congratulations on such an amazing portfolio and website.
    Your skill and ability is most definitely shown in your huge number of Editor and Readers choice awards.

    It would be impossible for me to decide on one favourite image, but I am a huge fan of 'Lone Leaf Falls'

    I'll be studying your entire portfolio very carefully - I've got so much to learn!

    Cheers,

    Sam
