from ordinary to EXTRAORDIARY

once again i have tried to make up for my lack of photography skills and and equipment by using photoshop to make the photo look "cooler"...here is a regular photo from home that i tried to give a more "professional" feel to it, not like it was just taken in my bedroom :P did that make sense? i'm not that technical about things but i have some grasp on the techniques commonly used, i mostly just try to make the pictures pretty....anyway, i'd LOVE for you to let me know what u think and what i could do to make it better and for you to share your imagination by trying ur hand at the original, well, hope to get some responses!

Overall you pulled off the "studio effect" pretty well. The only thing that bothers me is lighting on their faces. There is more light on their foreheads
than in relation to the rest of their faces.

Lovely gals, nicely posed

I tried for a tighter crop, lightened the background and adjusted the contrast and coloring. I think the result is credible.

How do you like it?

thanks for ur rendition....looks good, i especially like what you've done with the brown eyes, they look so deep and almost have that wet look to them...the light background looks fine too but i guess i've just always been more partial to the black and white look....maybe it depends on my mood :P but overall looks good...thanks so much for ur input

Just above average. lol

Got to get to band practice, so I had just enough time to brighten it up a bit.
