View Full Version : Chicken, One more time

I am trying to fill my case too. Added a blue ribbon to my image to tell the story. What do you think? If okay, name - Henny, First Place - open for suggestions.

is it just me, but you have shading on the ribbon or a gradient of light on the ribbon and a direct light on the main subjects. Sure would like to see more light texture.

I don't understand what you mean, sorry. Do you mean I need to fix light on image or ribbon? The ribbon is shaded because it is hanging down and is sort of tucked in. Try it one more time please.

Sorry Sandra.

Here is a sample of what I tried to do. I add shadowing and detail to the parts that were left flat. My only real worry is in the chicken where there is no detail. Hopefully on your hi-res the is some.

Now that I see it. I haven't posted it large enough to show the changes well enough. I know the size you post but what level do you save it at?

Nicely done Sandrra. Title: "Proud Mama Hen" comes to mind.

Sandra, I just love this image and the fact that you added the ribbon to it really tells the story.

Thank you Noelle & Erin.

John, made some changes. Did more detail on chicken and removed blacks from hair, added more shadows in face. Thanks John, sometimes you look at an image so much you get lost in it and can't see the problems. Is this what you had in mind?

Hi Sandra;

Ok ... here goes: "FFA Pride" / "Queen of the Roost" / "Chicken Royalty"
