in some cases it's just not possible to 'get that shot over again'. in the above case, it looks to be a graduation. that comes once and it's gone. jewelry can be re-shot. it's jewelry. it's there, go take a better photo of it. but a graduation, a birthday party, a drunken orgy...the moment is there, you take the shot and that's it....moment over.

so, i sort of agree with both sides here. some things you can ask for a better image or a re-shoot, and some you just cant. i mean, it never hurts to ask, but realistically, the moment is the moment and the person is giving you THE moment they want to improve and wont have another just like it.

and blue dog,
Honestly, I have thought about finding someone that could teach me about it, maybe even let me practice.
hehe, i'm getting worried about you already, mate, and you havent been here that long

i dressed up as a woman once in my life...for halloween. i'll NEVER do it again

Hi Blue Dog.

The missing bits are not impossible to recreate. Especially if you have more pictures.
Just an idea.

Here is a thought: a bad photo can make a good painting. This isn't finished by any means, needs a lot more work, but will give you a good idea what can be done.

This should draw some fire

Thanks Nancy,

That's an area that I haven't got into yet. I'm tempted, but trying to focus on the basics right now. I did make an exception though, for an unsalvagable picture. This from 1936, its my great-grand-aunt and daughter. I know its cheesy but my family actually loves it. What do they know?

OK. Here's more fodder!
