    That's an interesting concept Ed but I think the judges would say it's squeezing the subject into the frame.

    I'm likin' it Greg. I notice on the bottom of his sleeve where it is brighter than the top of his sleeve from when you darkened it down. I draws my eye right to the bottom of the frame. When you put the before and after next to each other is when it is really noticeable.

    I think I failed to darken some of the white squares on the sleeve Amy. This is where the tweaking phase begins. Now that the major changes have been made I will go back a few times over the next day or so fixing all the little details I can find. Once I feel the image is ready I'll have it printed on gloss paper and mounted on a Sintra backing. Once I have the completed print I'll give it one last inspection under competition lighting and if everything looks good I'll be entering it in our state comp on Feb 2nd. I'll post it's score here on that day.

    I hope this was helpful to people looking to prepare images for competition. My question now is would anyone like to see this again using a different image?

    Thank you Greg, yes it was very helpful, I really appreciate your effort to help others out. Also thanks for posting both images. Definitely would like to go through this process again if you have the time. You know between that link you posted a while back in which I sat through the whole competition and this image it really has gotten me excited about competition. Thanks again.

    Greg,
    I have looked at this thread about a dozen times, and have failed to respond because I cannot articulate what I want to say. That said, I will try. The image is a good capture, but I have an issue, with the quality of light. I wish I could say more about it, but I cant put my finger on it. There is something about the lighting that is not right. Maybe it is the contrast, or the height, but there is an issue for me there. you have talked about the shirt, and played with it a bit. I would suggest bringing the hands quite a bit higher. Just ps them up the arm and makeare full ccle

    Jorge, If you're interested in competition you might want to sign up for one of the mentoring sessions at Imaging. You can sit down with one of the jurors and get a one-on-one critique of your images. There are still mentoring slots available on Monday and Tuesday (I believe that Sunday is nearly full).

    Jorge - you can't miss this year's convention.
    After all, it's being held in New Orleans, the city of decadence (that's kinda fitting), and you don't want to miss this one since it's going to be the LAST convention that we'll ever have - since the world is going to end on December 21, 2012 - so there won't be a 2013 convention !!!
