Re: Serious Rug Burn with Bat soup! Photo Opinions

I love your sharpening and great concept. Nice job with three knives - looks good. After you add some more motion blur to the back of them I think it will look fine, maybe slightly darkening the side of the knives facing us (fading the wind effect slightly).

I don't like the blown highlights on his fingertips close to the camera. Because it's the lightest part of the scene against the dark background, it becomes a larger focal point of the composition than I think you intended. I'd try to lower the contrast in the hand and raise the contrast in the face/knives.

Great job and I'm looking to see more creative work from you. This is very very good.

One more thing I noticed on my way out -

The background is too solidly blurred compared to the man. The hand in the back should start to blur, as well as the hand closest to the camera. The doorway behind the fridge should be more blurred than the fridge seeing as the fridge is closer to the camera. Overall, there needs to be a much more even transition between the sharpest and blurriest focal points. You'll need to create a depth mask to do this scene properly.

Nice work! I like it. I'll think about going back into the file and messing around when I get a few minutes.
