Let me hear your opinions regarding this shot i've took today. Maybe background too large...:

EDIT: Here you go..

You have to right-click on the image as displayed in ImageShack and grab it's location by either selecting "Properties" or, under Firefox, "Copy Image Location" and use that. In this case the URL was http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/4650/img0407co5.jpg. Bob Andersson.

I think it looks fine. Almost like you wouls add "word of advise".
the only thing I wouls do is- - - - The bottom of your hair you have a hard shadow on the wall. you can fix that with post processing.
good luck. .

Thanks for your comments. Didn't understand what you mean with " Almost like you wouls add "word of advise". " I'm new to post processing in fact I need to type it in google in order to find out what that means :P

I think its quite a shame u took away the half of the face, i would have shown the whole face. And next time you move this is very simple: i messed it up to but now i notice it move your model/subject a bit furthera away from the wall/background taht way you avoid those nasty shadows :D

thanks for sharing

thanks alex for your tips...I saw an example on the canon tutorials which shot half of the face and thought of trying it. I'll try to take the full face and see. Thanks

What I ment by words of advise is almost what you would see in a breast cancer add where you would have half a face then something like "50 out of every 100 women have. ." (50 being half, and only showing half the face) or something along that line. if you crop your face right down the center it would look better. :)

Every now and then when I am out shooting I keep this type of shot in mind. It's always fun to see what you come up with after you take the photo. My guess is that you did not have a "cancer" add in mind when you took this, but when I first saw it I did. why you ask? I have spent the last few weeks going to and from the hospital ( I have a broken thumb check my flickr for the x-ray :shock: ) so I have lots of time reading their medical mag's. Always a fun read.
Anyway, well done. :lol: :lol:

Nick

Nice photo.

While I usually like to see only natural light on portraits, in a situation like this you could use your flash to take care of those shadows. Just set it to "slow" and force it to fire.
