Challenge: Best of 2005 (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Kodak Z760
Location: Bedroom
Date: Nov 26, 2005
Aperture: 3.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/64
Galleries: Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Jan 14, 2006

I had to resize it because my camera was set for a small picture, that's why it doens't look as sharp as it could possibly be. Ugh. Well with 700+ entries, I don't think this will do well. I hope for it to at least break a 5.

I didn't take too many pictures this year, only ones for challenges. I thought this one, though, was my best out of few choices. It's of my friend, Nicole, who spent the night at my house and who wants to become a model.

All I did was brighten/contrast, clone out her shiny lip, and sharpened her eyes.


-------------------------
Now that I look back on this, I realize it wasn't that great of a picture. I think it got the score it deserved

I get the feeling the photographer feels very strongly for this person.

I like the offcenter composition, but the photo seems flat and the black ad white conversion is a little flat also

The light seems very harsh in this picture (flash?). I didn't particularly like that the texture on the wall shows so well. All this imo, obviously. Good luck!

I think this would be better against fabric or a paper backdrop. Composition is fine, but focus is lacking.

dark and underexposed. Attractive subject

Lack of decent lighting really hurts this photo.

Hmm - I just looked at a similar photo where the black and whote conversion was better. Your model has a penetrating look and, of course, she is gorgeous. Negative space is nice, off center subject is nice. But the BW has a muddyness that detracts from the effect.

I like the pose and the cut-off crop, but the focus is too soft to really be effective.

The black and white seems to work here. I assume you added the grain. Good work.

sorry, but this just doesn't do anything for me. maybe it's the lighting, or maybe it's her bored expression. maybe it's the overall flatness of the image. but hey, that's just my opinion; as long as you love it, that's what matters.

The photo seems a bit flat to me, have you tried adjusting the levels to increase contrast?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It is a little all one tone. Nice composition though.

eyes well done but most of the rest of the image is muddy. composed well.
