Hi Giulia,

You need to get the perspective tool working on the doorway

Re: High End Retouch- Feedback Wanted!

i think what alison meant was to starighten your shot out a bit, the angle is awkward. try and straighten it a bit it might give it more impact,

I don’t think it is possible to straighten this shot without losing a lot of quality.

Hi Giulia,

I don't know if you took the photograph or not, but you perhaps could have left a little more information around the shot.

Chillin is right, lots of info is lost, but is your posted shot the original ? I have attached my version.

I would nt change perspective. You 'll loose dynamics.
Make it darker on the edges, so all the attention goes to your model/carpet.

I don't really feel it's my place to be the photographers eye. Perspective can always be fixed if it's requested but in this case I really feel the perspective on the doorway makes it very tall and intimidating.

Alison, yes that is the original. I didn't take out any information.

Hi Giulia,

Then there would be too much lost information to adjust the perspective. I agree that the doorway is very tall and intimidating, but I don't see that or the lady when I look at the image - all I see is the doorway falling backwards. That is only what I see of course

Re: High End Retouch- Feedback Wanted!

Well, keep in mind that this is being done for a client. So correcting the angle of the shot may not be to the clients liking, especially if the client is the photographer.

The angle and perspective in that shot is part of the draw to the image. To flatten out the perspective would wreck it.

Only thing I agree with thus far is the shoe on the door. It's blending too much with the dark colors on the door. Maybe add some specular highlights to the shoe to define it?
