Challenge: Tribute (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Kodak Z760
Location: End of my bed
Date: Jan 19, 2006
Aperture: 3.4
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/8
Date Uploaded: Jan 20, 2006

Well, I was going to enter this into Free Study, but my mom suggested it go as a Tribute because it looked so similar to the picture here by Steve McCurry:

This one is a self portrait. It's kinda freaky I think, I have enormous eyes, but no lips! lol I really really like it though, and I hope it does well. It's not the best picture, I know, but I love it. The lighting is off too, so one side of my face is really bright, while the other is kind of dark. I only cloned out a few distracting elements around my left eye and unsharp mask after resize. I'm guessing and hoping it will be around a 5.5

*crossing my fingers* Please please please do well!! lol

Finally a colourful picture. That is unfortunate that the picture is not sharper. It would have been greater. 7

Nice eyes. Longer lens/focal-length and lighting not-from-below would be better.

Nice tribute. If anything, the light on the right side of her face is a wee bit too bright.

Clever..how the scarf and eyes compliment each other.

His portraits don't seem to be cropped so closely nor are they as bright.

Well not really Steve McCurry's style but style a lovely portrait nevertheless. The skin is faded, the colors looked faked and the sharpness is a little off but I love the color combinations, the fact that that all the blues just go well with each other.

Very nicely put together. Your colors are thought out and coordinated perfectly. I like the softness of the skin and the perspective you show.

The photograph looks great and well done... but, I don't see the style McCurry uses to portray a culture...
