Another Couple wPaint

Postby Ernst-Ulrich Schafer » Fri Nov 03, 2017 6:54 pm

I took this image a number of years back at a wedding. It's been a favorite portrait of mine since then. Here I added a paint filter to the image.

This one is catchy. A lot of spontaneity in the scene. There is also a certain class and timelessness to it. I like it.

I'm not too crazy about the gentleman's beard, though, with this effect, as it makes him too skull-like. Maybe some judicious dodging/burning of the mustache?

I really like this but wonder what you think of cropping the man out? There's so much personality to her. Well done! S-

Marvelous .. Great dialogue going on; I think both figures are equally important, she, dominating with taking up more space and with the encompassing hat and the casual lean of the head, he, attempting to compete with the commanding lift of the chin and imperious tilt of the nose. I can see why it's a favorite. Matt
