Re: Critic that!

There's a giraffe growing from her back.... no, seriously, this photo was not good enough to dedicate anytime for retouching. I assume it was a facebook photo. I'm sorry, but at this size it feels like someone who can't retouch asked you to fix the exposure of the image and color cast, you gave it a curve and that's it.

I'm going to say what i have said to you many times before. Get yourself some real images. You will not learn with snapshots.

Re: Critic that!

too small - But
sorry you asked for it.

red in her hair
red streak on her top
floor is 2 different colors
top of the box she is sitting on is way to red
no detail in the black chair
hats lost detail and color
BG too busy
i wish the young lady had her left hand on her knee making her leaning forward
that would have tilt her head a little more.
a better crop would have made her thee focal point. right now my eyes are wondering around to much.

now if you only used her, the boxes, hats, giraffe, floor and a clean wall. i think you could have taken 20 shoots with her posing in many moods.

Re: Critic that!

Lots of dead uninteresting space on both sides... cropped it out..

My eyes went right to the bright hat on the left... cropped it out

Levels then got rid of the yellow overcast (hue/Sat)

Trunk and floor color correction (hue/Sat)

Sharpened and noise removal (Which seems to have softened it some)

Maybe 15 Min


~~Your Original~~~ Your Fixed~~ My sample~~
