  3. It's because you're new dude. Everyone did that to me also so don't feel bad. Do about 150 post and you'll be a regular around here. As for your captures... nice looking model although I have would lighten and saturated the colors a tab bit more for more pop. thanks for sharing.:smile:
  4. sorry man, the model is very pretty but the shooting environments are terrible. Poor lighting and backgrounds. You need the elements to compliment her.

    keep trying. You are not really new...July 2005 join date

    Nice series and a lovely model. In the first image the glare on the car is a little to much for me.

    Interesting use of off camera flash in number 2. I would have maybe tilted the camera down on the right.

    In the last one I feel the model is just in the background, maybe if it was shot the opposite way with the wall behind her over her shoulder it would work better for me.

    Just my opinion, but still a good series.

    The first pic is a little blown out. But I like the other two. I think, if anything, they suffer from the lack of Post Processing. As a result, the model is kind of lost against the background. Here's my take on one of them...

    ok, since you really want to know...
    Shot 1. She sat on what looks like a wet car so I'm drawn to the spots on the car. Additionally, hope that was your car she sat on. She's skinny but looks like a dent is in the making.
    Shot 2. Never seen a model posing in a car like that. I can't help but to look at the dome light. Next time crop it out
    Shot 3. Are you trying to showoff the graffiti cuz that looks like the main subject.

    I am no means a professional, but I think you picked poor backgrounds. Sorry not feeling it.

    Hi, Mr PaTaTe -- the first is my favorite of these images; the glare/exposure problems excepted. The second is the least complementary of the model. Let us see some more in the future?

    Best Regards,

    Hey Mr. French guy...first of all WELCOME to THE CAFE'!! Glad you are here.

    Ok second of all ... the images are nice...I think your client will be please. There are some lighting issues, but nothing that stands out greatly.

    My favorite one is the last one...I love this image. However, it needs some color punch to it. I hope you don't mind...I tweaked it a bit, and also cropped slightly.

    Here is the before and after.

    As you can see in my image...the yellow has been highlighted a little more going down that corridor.
