tried to download it for a mod, but it's says file unspported or damaged
Hey cats, Thanks for looking and the comments. something is not right with the whole upload as voting was enabled and mods wasn't ( maybe I got it backwards lol). I will try to edit it and see if anything changes.
I"m not sure why the file is not supported or damaged but it looks like the other stuff was just my screw up.
This is a really nice shot.
To answer some questions, - you have marked it for a critique, so no voting is allowed, and modifications are automatically on.
Secondly, theres noting really wrong file wise except, you always need to ensure that images posted to the web have the sRGB colour profile attached. This tagged with a profile that Photoshop will not recognise, and this is because its left with its MODE as greyscale, when it should be set to RGB. This will NOT make it a colour shot.
So, for the shot, nice, but would suggest a few tweaks. Crop to make the ring the focal point; slightly blur the very sharp and readable text in the lowers area to keep focus on the fingers; and a small amount more light, with a bit of sharpening does help.
Anyway, Ive uploaded 2 mods, scroll up to the modifications tab, the second one is a duo tone, and both have the tweaks applied.
Hope this helps,
Thank You.... It helps alot.
I really like your mods! I guess i missed the part about critique and voting lol. As for the sRGB colour profile attachment I must have to apply it before converting to jpeg and exporting from LR? The infocus print did bother me but as I am new to LR and have got alot to learn wasn't to sure how to deal with it. I will most defintely use your tips in the future. Like I said I got alot to learn
For me, the depth of field is not enough. For this type of shot the whole hand needs to be critically sharp and it's not. 50 mm f1.8 at full aperture again. A lot of people seem to buy this old standard lens design, then use it at full aperture much of the time. Better to use the aperture best for the image, about f8 here for me and a pin sharp gritty mono.
Thanks for takin a look and your valued critique. Like I posted earlier I have a lot to learn and increasing the depth of field never crossed my mind, something to definately put into play in the future.
