Watching, Waiting

By sugar jones  
Here we are at last. Just playing with curves and crops today.
One from the shoot on Saturday - is wearing clothes but the closer crop on this just brought out all the textures in the shot from hair, to wall, to skin. Incidentally I have about 6 different crops off the original - makes a refreshing change!

(Any tips on uploading photos? Finding depth of image and colour is flattened on upload)

I like this a lot. I think the crop works very well. I also like the coloured bricks that add interest to the wall. Click.

like it all, but one thing that spoils it for me... her skin color.

I think it all blends well. Is it slightly cross precessed? PAul

That was the idea for colours to blend but for textures to contrast.
Is it what Paul? Sorry for my ignorance but I'm not techie enough yet. Do you mean cross processed ....if so ...still don't know what you mean?

Wonderful shot. I like the work you have done here and the crop does beg the question - Is she? isn't she? Good work

Like the pose and the crop. The colours work well and I like how the brick on the right matches her skin colour.
