The concept is that you post a pic that you would like to get a critique or advice on and then folks who know what they're doing, provide said advice. For free. I mean, HELLO, people pay money for this stuff. How can I NOT participate?
So, here is my submission for Constructive Feedback Friday:
My edited version, in Lightroom (which I am still learning)
EXIF DATA (fancy info for those who get this stuff)
(Obviously not working with a lot of light here...)
Unedited file and link to high-res photo:
What exactly is it that I'm uncertain about in this photo? Well, I like the composition a lot but I just didn't seem to be able to get the "pop" from the edited product that I wanted without skewing the contrast, saturation, and sharpness to a place where it knocked the whole thing off-balance. I obviously like the edited version better - it has more pop - but it's missing something. That "quality" that pro photographers give their images, that makes the eyes dance while the skin stays peaches-and-cream.
However, all that said, all others kinds of advice, recommendations etc... are welcome. I don't know what I don't know, know-what-I-mean?
Looking forward to my critique! Thanks, "I Heart Faces"
