This was the obvious choice for me really because I had the model... ME and the backdrop blah blah blah but I wanted it to look slightly different from my wife's original shot while still having a lot of similarities.

Est Score - 5.9
Dream Score - 6.8

Might not be to everyone's taste

Very nicely done! This really emulates the original very closely. Colors and sharpness of details are wonderful. My only suggestion on how to improve this one is that the lighting could be better to fully illuminate more details on the iMode eye and the buttons on the phone. As it is now, we know it is a phone but we need more 'visual' cues to strengthen that connection. The number buttons are too much in the shadow. The iMode eye while visible some of the eye gets lost in shadow when you venture towards the left half. Either have another dimmed light source shining forward on your model OR since this is Advanced Editing you could select those portions that are too dark, feather the selection (to avoid hard edges), and then play with Brightness/Contrast and/or Gamma correction.

I like this version. Good BG, nice directional lighting, good exposure control. Wish the eye were more dominant in the phone. 8

Of the two of these, I like this one best. Close though.. I think the lighting is closer to the original.

Very cool retake. The focus is great, and I love the texture on the skin, hoodie, and background. Nicely done.

The hood, the background, the 5 o'clock shadow. It all dead-on. Congratulations.

A faithful recreation, better in some respects, but lacking in the dramatic lighting of the original.
