got to this photo from "a bomb from nowhere " thread...
beautiful model and I would say a good pose, but the quality of the photo is not so good which is why you can see it didn't score well...You need a better lighting, the image looks like its underexposed and if you try to use levels/curves it will make it noisy as I can see here.. most likely you used not so bright light and camera was at a high ISO setting...also the white balance is a little off giving a yellow cast to the whole image.
this is my attempt at editing...

Very nice model with lovely hair and nice facial expression. I would have done anything to close the f stop more and then bringing the hand closer to the body would have focused on the stem of the apple. This would have sharpen the lovely eyes a little better. A very good effort. Bumping up.

Beautiful model but the background is a problem. Even a green solid color would be better than against a white wall. Cool concept and theologically the stuff of the human problem. .. Not woman, but human.

Other than the quality of the picture I think it is a nice shot in the series.

Nice idea for the challenge. Lighting is pretty good. I like the models facial expression and upturned eyes. I would have liked to see a bite taken out of the apple. Since according to the story, Adam and Eve didn't know they were naked until they ate of the fruit.

the plastic or silk artificial flowers seem to ruin it and the background white is too harsh

Hillarious. Focus is a little soft, but well done.

Doesn't seem quite sharp. I might try a darker background to set of the skin tones of the model. Nice Idea.

great idea. I really like the colors, and the expression of your model. Not sure about the lighting and background though. 7.

Nice image, or at least nice idea. I know it would have been tough, but this might have been a winner if taken outside amongst some trees rather than in a studio setting. <6>

too staged

my gf refused to do this... good job in getting the idea onto film (as such). Slight lack of sharpness detracts and it looks as though there is a bit of noise in the image generally. Maybe your ISO setting for a (presumably) indoor, curtains closed kind of shot. Consider applying a bit of sharpening to the pic (remember to do this last).

Compositionally, the apple might have been more interesting outside the centre of the frame.

Very good idea. The picture itself is kind of grainy and the lighting is sort of dull.
03/30/2005 09:03:11 PM
Did Eve wear make-up?
03/30/2005 07:23:48 PM
Hmmm! It might be my monitor or my tired eyes, but she seems out of focus. The shadow is a little distracting.

I thought she wasn't supposed to cover herself up until AFTER she ate the apple.

Ah, the dreaded wall shadow. If you want to cure that, move the subject away from the wall a bit more and that should drop away. I like the picture though.
