Default White, Gold, Black, Cobalt Blue Venice Mask

Four shots of a souvenir of Venice.

Overview :



Front :



Side :



Side Closeup :



Before Shooting :
- All of the shots have been taken with a flash.
- In most of them I have underexposed by -0,7/-1EV to avoid white burning.
- The last ones have been taken in Macro Mode.
- Next time I'll try to shoot with the mask standing far away from the wall : the shadow below the chin is not that cool indeed.

P.S:
- rotation
- cropping
- automatic levels
- automatic contrast
- unsharp mask
- dodge tool brush on black parts
- some saturation tool brush on some parts in the last ones.
The "original painting defects" have been left untouched.

Sergio,

#1 gets my vote in large part becasue the ey and brain leaps to fill in a body below the mask. The Gestalt is quite efefctive.

I agree with Selvin on the first shot, though for me, it's because of its startling contrast. Then there's the third shot--its composition seems perfect.

I'm with Selvin too. #1 is clean, crisp and nice.

I really like the fourth shot, I think it gets straight to the point that grabs my interest, the eye while giving us just enough of the great colors in the feathers.

Take care,
Jeff
