Challenge: Portrait in Landscape Orientation (Advanced Editing IV*)

Date: Oct 31, 2006
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 0.6s
Date Uploaded: Oct 31, 2006

What can I say? I LOVE this shot!!
This was a spontaneous action - no special set up, no reflectors, no make up, no crazy lighting. She just sat down there and I pressed the shutter. It's always great to get such a beautiful shot with this little effort!

*** After challenge ***
Thanks for your nice comments and favorites! It was a pleasure to press the update button this week ;) Maybe I should take more portraits as my 3 top scoring shots are portraits?

hey! I just found this, nice work again! You've got so much natural talent, I'd like to have just a little bit more of that. You remind me so much of Joey Lawrence or sjcarter, using the little camera for all that it's worth, and winning with it. Love it.

seems to me u used the wrong burning tool in the upper left corner... did u burn the highlights? maybe midtones would have been better... overall, a fantastic picture!!

Great shot! Nice, crisp focus, great tone. The b/w and vignetting really help to minimize distraction and bring attention straight to the subject.

I didn't give a 10 in this challenge (maybe I had too much expectation) - this photo comes the closest to the perfect 10 - a solid 9 for me. I love the lighting, the relaxed face, the angle of the shot, and the texture. This should win.

I really like this one, but the processing on the face is a bit OTT - or was it just a little hot?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

To be honest the face bothers me somewhat. She's certainly attractive don't get me wrong. I just don't care much for the brighten face and hands. It does make her "pop" but it just seems unnecessary.

great interest value: the vertical box tends to shift the emphasis of the landscaped format...was that your intention?
