Re: Everybody loves my work....

Hi, great images. One question, why the front page with the 'click here to enter'? If I go to a website I obviously want to see it so why the doorbell? No criticism intended, just wondered if it was necessary?

I hate to bug you but.....you are extremely talented and I like what you do. How about posting a few hi-res images so people can appreciate just how good your finished images are?

All the very best.

the front page is more of a branding tool so people can identify with my name/logo

when i get home tonight i can upload a hi-res image for all to look at

if theres a general consensus of a particular image, id be happy to upload

That alone is enough to make me actively avoid it.

Yes I see your point but I have a website (www.river-studio.com) and never saw the need for an 'enter' page. Try using your logo as an active part of the style sheet and dump the entry page. Your work is good enough that it doesn't need it.

Just my 2 cents/pennies worth.

All the best,

Dave.

Re: Everybody loves my work....

haha thanks for all the feedback, positive and negative.

i will consider taking out the intro page once i put up more work.

im currently working on a series of jesus' pics so once these are complete, ill update the site with new and replaced images.

i know the sun should be shifted more towards the right bc of the shadows cast, but thats how the photog wants it.

Re: Everybody loves my work....

in portfolio1-->C-3PO: since you changed the landscape in the "after" photo to give an illusion of vast distant, the diagonal line should be a lot narrower or barely seen at the horizon. no? the shadow of the hovercraft would be that soft...not at that distant. it should be darker. look at C-3PO's shadow. also, why did you shorten the shadow of jet engine?

good observation and really looking into it...for the horizon, you do bring up a good point to fade out the lines, theres nothing really to make more narrow from what i can tell. as for the shadow of the side engine, it was my interpretation of what the shadow would look like had it been hovering a foot or 2 off the ground....i knew it was diff then the original but thought it still looked realistic enough to pass.

i also checked your work, great skin retouching

Re: Everybody loves my work....

Hey, I may have a giant cock, but I dont walk in and announce that, and then slap it on the table and say, look at it, poke it and tug it and find whats wrong with it. Its kind of in bad taste. But if I were so inclined to do such a thing, Im sure the topic of size would come up, since they always say size matters. And that, my friend is exactly what your website is missing.
