Challenge: Portrait with Spectacles (Basic Editing)
Camera: Sony DSC-W55
Location: Davenport, IA
Date: Jan 7, 2008
Galleries: Urban, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Jan 8, 2008

i was driving with my friends to my house and we saw this bridge on the way there. i drive by it everyday before and after school, and i've always wanted to take a portrait shot of my friend by some kind of old, dirty background. I love her body position. it shows that with just a simple snap of a button, anything can look good.

Not a big fan of your cropping out the model's left foot....just one of the things I notice that ruins this picture for me....other than that, nice job.

i would have liked the focus on the face instead of her him and foot

Very cool...kind of retro, kind of punk.

Interesting pose and location. Is the face a little blurry?

her poise seems a little uncomfortable. i might have cropped in to her face and left hand more. nice shot.

Very good perspective and angles. Very pretty model. The outfit and keys go with the urban theme. IMO the phone/wallet (?) in the hip pocket is more of a distraction than a part of the personality (only minor though). My only serious complaint is that your focus seems a bit soft on her face, with sharper emphasis on her hip. A slight sharpening would help.

IMO One of only a few portraits in this challenge that has gone beyond the norm. Fantastic pose and a shot which undoutedly incorporates specatacles but does so with a degree of subtly...This shot is of a trendy urbanite who happens to be wearing glasses rather than of a pair of glasses which happen to have someones face behind them

I like the graduated blue from trousers to top to - could perhaps have been a toch sharper but still a great 8

I like the pose and the interesting environment (it does seem a bit busy though).

Wow the colors are outstanding in this picture. Her hair and her pants look great. Great picture.

Very nice focus, but you could have directed the viewers eyes to the glasses instead of her hair (it's a little bright). It is a little too posed for my taste.

Cool pose.
01/09/2008 06:40:46 PM
i think the blue pants take away from the girl. She is very pretty. Otherwise good.
01/09/2008 04:48:22 PM
You've clipped her foot and almost cut of her hand. Otherwise it's an interesting pose.
01/09/2008 01:35:45 PM
Great colours, tones, but the pose of the model makes me feel a little uneasy :)
01/09/2008 12:28:09 PM
Pose is interesting...but her left leg looks awkward...like it's broken and she's dragging it.

Doesn't really look like a portrait, looks more like snapshot, other than that it is cute.
