    Here's a shot I took Saturday at an Easter get together with some family at the in-laws house. I think the picture has more potential than what I brought out of it but I've been out of the game on processing and whatnot for a while and just trying to remember everything. =]

    Anyhow, let me know what you think.

  2. I think it's technically flawed. The focus seems a touch off on his eyes...I really wish they were sharp. The composition is a mite awkward. You've captured a nice expression though and the colors and expsoure work well.

    Looks like a great photograph to me, but I'm not a pro or anything. I like the composition and the processing looks good to my eyes.

    Thanks Brian, Diego and Joshua.

    I think I agree with Justin about the focus tho the more I look at it. Not quite as sharp as I'd have preferred.
     
  8. I too agree with the focus, but otherwise it's a sweet shot. Keep posting... funny thing about this place is that people who hang out here seem to get much better in a very short amount of time.
     
  9. If I may suggest, Crop off the right side of the picture a little to the right of the swings chain. I think this good picture would look great with the chains framing the image.
     
  10. Great smile, but I agree with Bill. I want to make a vertical out of it, also with the chains as frame. I find myself wanting more image at the bottom to raise the eyes. The softness doesn't bother me.

    Cheers,

    Larry
     
  11. Hiya, I took the liberty of applying my suggestion to your image. I hope you don't mind. I also lightened it a little and really brought out his blue eyes. I suspect the color now is more accurate...What do you think of it?

    First Crop...

    Second Crop...

    I did the first crop uploaded it and then thought hmmm maybe a little tighter crop to make it a little more symetrical. I now like the second crop more.

    YA LIKE?

    I definitely do like the 2nd crop quite a bit. Most of my portraits on my site are using a similar composition to first one I posted but I'm not opposed to changing it up and trying others. I'm not sure I'm completely sold on the extra processing however. I do like the blue eyes being a little more pronounced but it may be a little much in other places.. like it looks like he may have lipstick on now to me. Is it just me? Cause it definitely could be. =]

    Thanks again, I may go back and crop it and process it a bit differently and see what I get. I do appreciate all the feedback so far!
