Thank you Mr. Schafer, I'll give that a shot....Ernst-Ulrich Schafer wrote:I like it alot. Good placement of the subject in the frame. Wonderful exposure and tones. Maybe burn down the highlight on the shoulder and remove the hair lower right.
Thank you pop511, you are more than welcome to show me your crop as I’m not sure I understand.....pop511 wrote:Admire the gritty feel to this and P/P work. What I did to your picture whilst looking at it, was to place a piece of paper on the left side and mask off about half of the dark area.
Try it and let me know what you think. For me it gave an edgier look, and stronger focus.
Oh if only I were that creative Linda....my shots are as I refer to them "grab-n-go", I do try to position myself where I think the cation will be....all else reveals itself as I process……LindaShorey wrote:An enigmatic expression that holds my attention. A strong POV, Frank, that suggests you knew exactly where you wanted to take this one. I like it very much.
Thank you Chuck, yes this was around the dinner table when most were ready to move on.....Charles Haacker wrote::D I don't think that look is enigmatic at all. I think that's the OK this session is over, right?! look. I like the portrait as is. My notion of critique is What Would I Do If I Had Made It? If my answer is the same thing you did then that's fine.

Very nice one Frank. It isn't tack sharp but I don't know that it needs to be. The slight softness looks like a very appropriate approach for this particular image. I like the angle and the natural unposed and unprepped look of it. To capture personality in an image is something not everyone can do. Good work.
I'll leave the technical suggestions to those who know more about portraiture than I do.
