  • I think it's very good. My only niggle is the little bit of hair cut off with the crop. It's not enough to make it seem like it was intentional. I would have stepped back a touch.
  • Huh? He clearly says the Priest says he is not allowed to use flash at the ceremony...

    You have to be really careful when cloning out items and using the rubber stamp as to not create repeating lines, which you have done here. The brain is really good at picking up repetitive ...
  • You can still buy floppy drives. Here is one quick link: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2027943/how-to-access-your-old-3-5-inch-floppy-disks.html If something is in demand, like CD's and DVD which ...
  • But that is your own fault for not backing up properly. Not the fault of a digital file. I have 10 year old digital images on hard drives and CD's from my first Canon 300D that I can access just fine.
  • You don't say what type of look you were trying to achieve, so that is tough to answer. But as an outsider looking in, I would suggest a couple of things. If you aren't looking for such strong ...

    And you do. So you win! Well done. Next.
  • Do you feel it is an ethical business practice to charge top dollars for a custom print to sell to your clients when Costco can do a decent job for $5 for an 8x10? How do you even justify telling a ...
  • Replied in Questionable
    Care? That's not true at all. If you got the gist of my post, I was suggesting that perhaps the "art" of photography costs less now than decades of past. It doesn't cost hundreds of dollars to get ...

    Thank you for the kind words. I just feel it is a fair price.. perhaps I should revisit that. I don't know. But I appreciate your response.

    Listen, I'm going to get this out right from the beginning. I'm likely one of those so called "weekend warriors" that affect "professional" photographers. But hear me out before ripping me a new one. ...
  • You are correct, but also slightly wrong too. You neglected to mention that the eye generally leads to the largest prominent feature in the image first, which is the case in this photo. My eye did ...
  • Isn't that a contradictory statement? These shots work much better with their "heads cut off", then they would having them. I know what the tops of their heads look like as well as the top of a ...
  • What type of metering are you using? In many of them the background appears very much brighter than the subject. The subject seems under exposed in most of them. I think the poses and model is ...
  • I was in London for my first time last February so it already holds some nostalgic feelings for me as I really enjoyed my time there, but that isn't trying to take away the images you have captured. ...
  • I really like the framing and the background that you have done here. The model and the pose works nicely for me. I do think, even for high key, she is overexposed and I would have brought this ...
  • I shoot a bunch of different styles of photography. I started off with landscape and people and then started to dabble in RE photography in the small town I live. The town I live in the average ...
  • I think for me the concept of the video wore off fast. The first location for the first 10 seconds with the music I felt it was nice, complimented the sound, interesting and then it kinda dragged on. ...
  • Replied in Need oils
    And your point? He was trying to take a photo of his food to look good. That would imply that he wants to make the food look appealing, which means he needs to work on that. This isn't a recipe ...
  • I'm not a food photographer but I do like to eat food, so my comment is based on appeal. I feel that the crop is a little tight. The table cloth in the background is distracting. Food shots that ...
