  1. Few shots from a little bit of photo fun the other day...more to come soon. SB800 used on all shots, usually camera left, sometimes with a shoot through umbrella. Shot with a D2x, lenses were a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 and Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 (mostly the Tamron).

    C&C would be greatly appreciated!


    2- similar look...

    3- and now a bit of color

    Thanks for looking!

    I like the ethereal feel of the first though I don't care for the downward angle. The top needs to be cropped.

    The second is also kind of cool - top also needs to be cropped.

    The third is cute, but needs to have the top cropped.

    Regarding the first two, not sure where you were going with them, but I think they would make cool artworks with the right processing.

    I have a tendency to see images as artworks, so I not sure if my comments are helpful. :smile:

    I like the tones of the first two. I'm a fan of gritty black n whites. Um... "gritty" is a good thing for me. Hope that makes sense. Nice work.
  5. Thanks for the comments everybody, for the first two I was really going for both the gritty and very high contrast b&w, and hoping for an ethereal feel, so I'm glad those were both reactions that people had to the shots!

    In a moment I'll post some updated crops and edits, thanks for looking everybody.
  6. Alright, first off some new ones:



    And some re-edits/redone crops:

    #2 redone--

    #3 redone--

    Thanks for looking!

    I like the #2 and #3 redone a lot. Great stuff.
  8. Thanks! I think the re-crops and edits are much better too, thanks to the advice from here!
    And just one that hopefully is a bit better about not centering the subject since I have an apparently very nasty habit of doing that (at least I did during this shoot...)
