This week's theme was Black and White. I am still sick of body and spirit, but picked up a camera today for the first time in 2 weeks and took a photo of what was nearest my chair: a little statuette that once belonged to my mother in law - to see if I could vaguely remember how to do a selection, change a backdrop, and experiment with some software that emulates results from old film. Then, since I recalled how to use LIghtroom, I chose a random old picture to convert.
Nice work on the background selection on your first image. I would say you have success with that attempt, the subject and background seem to blend very well together.
Your second image is a rather interesting character. The depth of field, separation and bokeh is pleasing and compliments him, but maybe a little darker sky would enhance the view of him a little more. I think that's what I want to say? Can you share a little more information about him? Where was this taken, etc. This is one I would liked to have captured.
Two weeks without the camera sounds oh so familiar, sometimes it takes a good kick in the you know what to get back on track.
