    Default face

    You caught me! I tried to fix the bluriness of the face - did not give it too much time to play with and yes, the attention is on the umbrella. This makes me want to work it again until I get it right.


    An aside, I too noticed the hand in your blue window photo.
    you little trickster, you!

    Good for you! I was once told that a good photographer needed square eyes which means that he/she needs to see everything within the frame, and not just the main subject.

    For you, that means paying attention to any distractions in the background, too. As you learn more about photography and postprocessing, you will learn how to better control background distractions.

    By the way, I can take out the hands very easily in postprocessing.

    I prefer the colour version as well. I`d also shoot it with a shallow dof to cxl out the background.

    I know what Marko is saying about clients liking BW and Sepia. People say that too me ALL the time. Even with images that have stunning colour people will say ``oh... great shot.... you should make it black and white``

    I tell them that you do NOT watch television in black and white or sepia, why on earth would you want to look at photos in black and white or sepia.

    everybody has different tastes though tegan...

    totally understandable that b&w or sepia is not whats wanted in television/ media, but for family/wedding/baby/pet photos, they are usually highly praised and quite liked.

    maybe your 'eye' is too professional!

    I like your 2 shots in this thread tomorrowstreasures!

    tegan you are right I still owe an HDR podcast. I've been looking for the right "guest" that's why it hasn't been done yet. On many topics I feel at ease enough just to talk...but not HDR. Sepia shot will be uploaded this weekend I hope.

    thx

    Looking good Tomorrowstreasures.

    Looking forward to taking a close look at your sepia shot, Marko.
