  • I don't get it.  The neutral seems cooler than the cool version.  I prefer the one you labeled cool.  The warm is too orange and the neutral too blue.
  • I agree in general with the critiques.  For me, the main thing is her right hand.  It draws my eye instantly.  It think it's caused by the choice of focal length (35mm), increasing the hand sized ...
  • I fully disagree. The key is not to use VR as a new version of that spherical screen. I just tried HTC Viv 3D drawing and that was something. You are part of a fictuous 3D world, and you can...

  • Not at all. I just experienced HTC ViV system. First was a kind of game, where you interact with blobs around you. Meh.

    Next was a 3D paint program. You just draw stuff around you and it stays...

  • That's probably the best way to say it, there's a learning curve.  I am not saying one system is better than the other.  I wanted to warn the OP that switching is no free lunch. My printer is  a ...
  • I'm new to the Mac, from Windows, and I can confirm you it's simpler to stay with Windows...  I don't regret it since it's easier for the rest of the family, but not for me or my activities, ...
  • Created discussion thread Finder and IPTC StarRating
    Hi, I'm new to the OS X environment.  I was using star ratings in Canon DPP and Windows. I can view this information in Preview since IPTC information can be looked at, even for .CR2 Raw files. I ...
  • I did more tests and the YN685 now gives similar exposures to my 420EX.  The faulty exposures were with the slide-in diffuser.  I suspect the detection switch was stuck at first but now operates well.
  • For me it's the opposite.  I didn't realize the first one was crop, I guess i like to see what happens to the hair and my mind makes up for what I don't see.  The second is cropped too tight with ...
  • Well,  I still hope I was doing something wrong. The strange part is that 3 exposures are similar, 2 direct and 1 indirect from the 420EX.  The indirect from the YN685 is cleary underexposed.  I'll ...
  • Created discussion thread Bad explosure with YN685?
    I just bought my first Yongnuo items, looking for manual remote flash. I tought the YN685 was a good idea to allow me to do ETTL on my Canon camera if needed.  Whilst direct flash seems to be ok, ...
  • Nice!  I prefer the second one, and, as a nitpick, I'd add a touch more sparkle in the eyes !
  • Sabrina, I think you overkooked it.  I like feeling that the model is in the shade, it's lost in your proposal.
  • You managed to get nice expressions from the subjects, that's probably the hardest part.  There is room for improvement, but I think it's easier to learn the technical part than the people skills.
  • I like Sabrina's comments because she's able to show us the results. Honestly, the original didn't work with me, way too busy, the wall was competing with the subject.  I also tought it was taken ...
  • I think it's ok to have her dressed up while standing proudly close to her work.  It looks wrong when she's actually working, her clothes are too clean.  But then, I'm not sure having her dressed ...
  • Replied in To be honest
    There was something wrong with her nose and forehead in the 'enhanced' version.  Unedited picture shows how beautiful she is.
  • I agree it could be a powerful picture.  In fact, this is what I first sensed.  But the feeling diminished a bit when I started to look more at the picture.  The background starts to compete, I ...
  • The two shots are great but I prefer the first.  It has a universal type of graphical appeal.  She's just a girl, any girl. It struck me when I saw the second one.  I didn't realize she was Asian ...
  • Replied in Marina
    I also prefer that version, the colour one.  The cropped one is a portrait with a competing backround.  This one is a portrait in a setting, in which both have room.  I still find the window ...
