This is a realistic looking film grain and I agree with the author on the "feel" it adds to a photo. Unfortunately viewed as a stereograph this wonderful feature you have added doesn't really get noticed. Well composed and great show of depth, love the look of this one.

I think you should have a space in front of the aircraft, the light is not good, and the photo (looked at in hi-res) is not in focus.

Having made jewelry for 35 years, if I wanted a shot to emphasize one of my rings... this would be a great one. (If I wanted a shot to emphasize a girl's forehead - not so much!

ya know, I'm think that if this is in their catalog that has a black background, the shadow probably wouldn't be as noticible. Still though it is a great shot!

In my humble opinion - the shadow and highlight on her shoulder make the photo

(5 years and 1725 days ago)

what a gem......
avatar k5683
k5683 says:

the first thing I noticed was NOT the jewelry, it was the shadow on her beautiful face I like the concept of trying to make the emphasis more on the jewelry, but because it isn't sublte enough, the shadow overpowers the rest. Still a great shot though!

Beautiful, simply beautiful. What a stunning model and I like our lighting. One thing I'd change though is to lighten the right side of her face, I don't like that her forehead is in shadow. But other than that this is superb.

Absolutely stunning Author I really like this. Although you would have poor Ansel rolling in his grave with your underexposed areas. The whole reason for the zone system was to figure out how to properly expose the scene so you don't have under or over exposure. But since I don't personally agree with his theory I think you shot is superb
