Not sure about this one...it seems washed out to me. I'm using two different computers, and I think my desktop is a bit darker than the laptop. This was taken at Dover raceway on vacation. It was very overcast that day, so I added an orange photo filter on a low density to warm it up a bit.

Dani,

Thanks for submitting. The image qualifies but I'm not really atttracted to the shot. Others might be. I think the background clutter has something to do with it. Some judicious blurring etc. would perhaps help.



The differential between computer screens also plagues me. I just haven''t gotten up the courage to calibrate my monitors.

Aloha

I like it. The skin tone looks good so the use of the orange filter worked well. Good job.

Candid shot, yes. Portrait, no! I don't think this qualifies as a portrait. And, as Selvin said, I don't think it is a very good shot. The backward ballcap and sunglasses ruin it as a portrait and the setting is not good. I hate it when I see kids wearing ballcaps backward. I guess they don't know what the brim is for. I hate even more seeing kids wearing backward ballcaps indoors, especially in a fast food restaurant.

Yikes..well..that's actually me and the only reason i had the hat on backwards was because the headset was uncomfortable with it the other way. It wasn't really candid either. Doug was sitting right next to me when he took it..and I knew he was taking it. Oh well..to each their own I guess.
