    Smile Please Critique for Comp...

    I feel like I am draining you guys but if anyone has time I would love to here some thoughts on this image and titles also....I met this young man at WPPI last year. He ask me to take a few shots after he saw my camera. He was very proud of his new suit. I'm working on this doing some filtering - it still looks alittle rough.

    Thanks Diane - you ask for it!

    This is our local body shop guy standing in front of his business. He saw me out in town one day taking a few shots and struck a pose for me. I was putting this in a local art show and thought about print comp also. I tried to bring out his facial features and put an emphasis on the textures of the scene.

    You know ... I think this (body shop dude) is just enough different it may grab the judges attention. Again, what do I know, but I like it!

    Heh, talk about luck more like it. The photography was ho-hum, same old, same old studio shot of a 6 mo old. She did all the work :-)

    I think the color of the mat really helped it out alot. It was fresh-bright and very complimenting to her . Not ho-hum at all.

    Preface this with, I'd love to have taken both these images and I am no where near qualified to give much critique, the first one has a bad angle on the bottom, looking right into his lap. for you experts out there, would there be a way to crop it to save it?

    Jane - I like where you are headed with the body shop guy. However when I look at him - my eye goes right to where the red is - his crotch. Maybe that's cause the red doesn't show up so much on his black shirt. Can you rework so the red rectangle falls elsewhere? I assume you planned the cropping on the sign so it said bod. What would really make this idea sing is if the guy really did have a great body - and no shirt. I don' think this one is quite there but it's awfully close- keep working on it. The red crotch is what bothers me about it.

    Thanks Linda and Holly...as most men - he " thinks " he has a great bod and the red reflects his attitude toward this. I see what you mean though. I have several different versions of him - a sweet man with a real unique character.
