I had the same problem, forgotten to add a person in the photo to make it a portraiture.

a portrait of what?
07/22/2007 12:03:10 PM
I don't feel that this is a portrait.

it's difficult to see the portrait aspect of this portrait...

Although the light is natural, it seems flat. Consider shooting when the sun is lower in the sky and generating shadows. Taking steps to get a sharper picture and a composition with a stronger focus of interest might help.

Overlooking the fact for the moment that this DNMC, I'd recommend doing a landscape in landscape mode. Maybe you are considering it's a portrait because it's in portrait mode. Also, saturate the colors more to bring out the sky and forest.

Well, I am open to wide interpretation but however I wouldn't look at this image it is NOT a portrait... Technically, it's also too flat to my taste. I am sorry.

it was already a push to call this a natural light portrait and I prolly would have given you the benefit of the doubt, but you didn't even ahve anything in focus.

not a portrait
07/18/2007 09:08:35 PM
portrait? looks like a landscape. technically it is soft and is in need of a color boost

Not really a portrait - even of an inanimate object
07/18/2007 05:26:58 PM
You're pushing the envelope. This is a landscape, not a portrait. I guess you expected to hear this.

Hooray for whiterook

I'm sorry this is a nice picture but it is not a portrait. Definition from the English dictionary

"a pictorial representation of a person usually showing the face"
07/18/2007 07:40:34 AM
Is a landscape? Also, lacks foreground interest, for me, and the dynamic range is limited.
07/18/2007 02:43:09 AM
What is this a portrait of?
07/18/2007 01:11:20 AM
ummm portrait? /3
07/18/2007 01:02:45 AM
Portrait?? Hmmmmm
