REFLECTION
avatar friiskiwi
friiskiwi says:

You are both right, When converting an image to black and white, there is more to it than just removing all the colours, default settings for conversion are seldom the best.
The selection and separation from the background is very well done.

I'd like to see you doing just that! It would be a great picture, but probably not much of an action shot except for when the daredevil falls flat on the pavement.

The crosses & dots on the helmet are openings...they should be transparent.
Good effect on the helmet.

This is a really great looking photograph, it is very well composed the focus spot on and the exposure is excellent. The bicycle with the broken tire/wheel really makes this photograph stand out.

TERROR IN THE MALL
avatar wazowski
wazowski says:

Pretty funny technique and well explained in the SBS. The only pity thing here maybe is the velociraptor source, it's missing a tiny part of the claw. Also in the entry on the left side, the straight line of the end of the image is too obvious. You might want to mask it here and there. Good luck!

FISHING AT DAWN

wazowski says:

Good choice of clothes for good and bad. One thing about the photos, especially if you use a tripod, you can make sure that the images are straight and also that the full person is in the picture. Unless of course you wanted to give it a snapshot feel. Good luck!

The reflection is wrong. I still haven't seen a good tutorial about how to do reflections on diagonal nonlinear objects, so I couldn't tell you how to fix it.

Greymval's comment about magnification is correct. I would add that the interior of the crystal ball seems too dark to me, given the fairly strong light source. It's still a well made image...GL author!

CRISTAL TOMATO
avatar greymval
greymval says:

Nice one, crystal balls magnify the background behind them when this is close to them, so the part of the tomato right behind the crystal should be bigger.
