Re: Wedding shot, help needed

[...] I actually tried to use the range masks in LR on this one (LR is all I had with me, on my ipad) but I'm not very capable with them yet. They do show promise, but I'll need more practice. Do you use them? I have used range masks but on very select images. They do have their use but only for sp...

very cool, though I think those guys look a little rougher than the locals.

I concur....

Ooh, no! (N) I'm to soft around the middle to even consider doing what the locals do. You got the wrong person there. :?

Re: 'HandHeld'

Thanks for commenting Frank. I suppose this image would/is subjective to ones own taste. Never really gave it much thought until afterwards.

Re: 'HandHeld'

There is a quality to this shot that appeals to me. I think it's a combination of the subject matter with the radial streaks surrounding the subject. The high contrast and desaturated nature works well to give the image a unique rawness to it that counterpoints the soft 'fur-like' look of the backgr...
