I agree with Admin. But as time goes on I dislike selective coloring more and more it feels like an old gimmick too me now.
Now for this shot I think strong black and white would make this a great image. OR desaturate the red by +50% so it is not so striking.
Unlike caimi, I love this kind of shot 🙂 I shoot weddings, this is great! It does need the crop as said and the shadows and whites lifted on the dress, I would work on increasing the luminance of girls leg so it pops out a bit more.
I really like it cropped so there is a just a hint of the real sky, if you crop it 8×10 it that does it. Maybe lift the blacks a bit, like to see a bit more texture in canoe. Overall great comp and image.

So in that setting, where you have some control to move your friend around, you have a black coat and black hat on a black background. One of the old school rules (1940) is to put…[Read more]
Apparently wildlife are not afraid of cars, but they are of people so shooting from your car seems to work out great. I really like this as is, great everything.
However! I do think if you cropped in a bit from the bottom that would make it stronger, and that is a guess. I would change it from 4/3 to 3/2 format so the width stays the same.
I think the hardest wall for a photographer to cross is removing their own personal feelings from the subject. While you may know she lives a hard life, nothing in the images says that to random viewer as @ddbblyou has stated.
Face is quite red, maybe sunburned or something but not very helpful for a good portrait. The angle is down and that…[Read more]
