Hula Wedding Dance

Postby Bob's Photography » Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:11 pm

I'm interested to know how many of you are bothered by the background. This was shot during a marriage ceremony at a hotel in Hawaii.

G'day Bob. The background itself doesn't bother me. However, the placement of the concrete line thru her nose does bother me. By positioning yourself lower, the line could instead slice thru the neck or shoulders which for me wouldn't be as much of an issue as it is here.
Hope that helps.. :)

Agree with Onslow. the background itself isn't too distracting, but the lines going to her face are.

Thanks guys, I'm going to silhouette her and drop it on another Hawaiian background. I'll show you when I'm done.

Here she is with Diamond Head in the background. I had to cut out some of the hair strands, I wasn't going to put that much into it, I don't think I'm not going to use the shot anyplace. Untill I get out and take some new shots, I like to bring up older stuff that I never used and manipulate them. Sometimes they come out better than I thought and add it to my portfolio. BTW, on the original she had a big bracelet on her wrist that was ridiculously reflective, so I removed it. :D
