avatar UncleJimmy

And...so the games begin! Well done my friend,,,it appears I need to hit the gym before the next self-portraits contest...LOL

Bravo on another superb entry

CMYK, it's NOT a candid for the first reason, the subject is clearly engaged with both the photographer and the viewer through eye contact. She is clearly aware she is posing for a photo. second, if she is a tour guide in the country, it's clearly not a studio shot...

Tour guide taken a breather
avatar UncleJimmy

Sorry jfish...but the skewed horizon really appears to work here IMHO...the subject is slightly skewed to the right, the horizon, slightly to the left...it creates a 'balance' of sorts...I really like the shot 'as is', the colors also work great together, in addition to the captured action, I must admit...nicely done Author!

Golden Day
avatar UncleJimmy

Don't get me wrong...I understood, indeed...a superb portrait as always. The attention to detail in the author's themed portraits is always complete.

(5 years and 1263 days ago)

The deal.

LOL - welcome to the party! Great to see you again

bandit...you're praising the 'master' of lighting here...yea, he's good (an understatement!)

I really like the theme here, good comp, nice tones...well done author

I really also like the composition here, well done Author...the ripples in the water fall perfectly outward and create a wonderful frame for the subject...beautiful work

Author, although an interesting image, I think the spirit of the contest is for us to 'see you'....but, to each their own I suppose...

(5 years and 1263 days ago)

Masked...
avatar UncleJimmy

Glad you entered this Author...although you say it lacks the 'typical wow factor", I really enjoy the image as it is. It's a different approach, but, in the case of this image, and it's desired look....I think it works well. Good Luck!

Rows Of Dosh
avatar UncleJimmy

Author....is there a vignette (white) applied to this? if so...it's not permitted according to the photography guidelines...

(5 years and 1266 days ago)

Rows Of Dosh
avatar UncleJimmy

Agree...it really looks like a kidnapping in progress...or in the States, a shot like this would be used as "evidence" in a child abuse case

(5 years and 1266 days ago)

avatar UncleJimmy

sorry author...read the guidelines of the contest: "maximum of 1 child"

(5 years and 1266 days ago)

It will all be ok
avatar UncleJimmy

Nicely done Author...the comp is very good and the blue really makes the shot with the frost...great work

(5 years and 1267 days ago)

Speargrass Blues
avatar UncleJimmy

Author: I really like the concept of this shot; however, maybe a better backgound (perhaps a white/pressed bedsheet on a tabletop), better lighting...stay away from on-camera flash, natural light would be better (near a window?) and get a bit lower on the angle...then you will have an impressive entry, just some suggestions...

WOW...cool "shack"...wouldn't mind owning something like that myself...nice find Author

The Royal
avatar UncleJimmy

A matched set of 2 each what author? The guidelines state : maximum of one (1) child... appears to be 3 children to me???

Edit: I see, one is the mother?....still 1 too many kids according to guidelines, sorry

Kiss
avatar UncleJimmy

LOL...nice image author...she could leave lipstick on my cheek anyday

(5 years and 1271 days ago)

Kiss
avatar UncleJimmy

Just a suggestion author...you might want to crop and slightly rotate the image so the line created by the tail begins exactly in the upper right corner...I think it would create a very nice leading line towards the subject...

What a challenging way to begin life...glad to hear he pulled through and is now a fully grown adult. Good Luck in the contest Author.

avatar UncleJimmy

Its a bit better now author...there is now at least some detail in the blown out parts of the mother's head. I understand what you are saying about some photos having BOH, I use the hi-key method quite often, but it certainly is a matter of having the blown highlights work with the image, not against it...

(5 years and 1271 days ago)

apes
avatar UncleJimmy

Author: although it's a wonderful pose and on-theme...your highlights are terribly blown. I would suggest finding another image that's more properly exposed before the voting begins....just an opinion, but as it stands, I'm afraid this particular image will not do well in the voting...

Nice idea and good work author...it looks as if it was designed like that
