Firs the photo looks nice, however, the watermark is a bit overkill and kinda ruins the photo overall, I like the idea and the pose but the color choice is also a little odd, maybe its just my screen but the blue looks super unnatural

however, if that was the look you were going for than good job.

Like I said though, I don't know when to stop editing. Haha! I will go back and see what I can do with the blue. As for the watermark, I can't seem to find a good place for it. I tried it in just about every other spot on the photo but can't find a place that I like. Any suggestions?

I agree with elijahschaffer about the watermark. I love the way the picture turned out though!

That looks a million times better in my opinion! (not that I'm experienced)
As I said before I love this picture! Good job!

Thanks :) I'm am starting to get the hang of the whole "people photography" thing. I have been working on it so much lately. I have a few more on my Flickr account if you want to check them out as well. (It will be the first about 7 or so photos on my photo stream).


Thanks again!

I just had a look through your flickr, and although I can't comment on the technical aspects of your photos, I can say that you have alot of great shots!

This is a great pose in my opinion. The PP isn't bad, I just find it to be a bit over saturated. If your using Photoshop or lightroom, take down the saturation slightly and I think your golden. I had a look through your flickr and your photographs are all composed well, the light is fairly good but your saturation is still a bit too much.

As for the watermark, I also struggle with it. It is hard to place and can take away from the photo itself. Im starting to think a simple font in the lower corner at a very small size.. like 8 or so may be the only solution.

Hope this helped.

Hi,

Nice Photo, are you able to remove the buildings in the backround aswell as the telephone lines, I think it will make the model stand out more if there is less to compete with in the backround.

Nice photo and well done.
