That my friend is one very good portrait shot. You should submit for POD.

Only thing I would sugguest is to crop out the very bottom where the pens are sticking out of his pocket.

Again, very well done.

I would never thought this was hdr.

He does not seem to be very happy.Maybe its because hes wearing that goofy hat.

Nice shot.

Nicely done. Pens don't bother me a bit. Lip color looks unusual. Not unreal, just unusual.

thanks all for your comments, all.

jj & catalex, its a big praise for me that you people suggested this for POD. i must leave for work, but then i come back, will try a little bit of experiment with cropping and will post them here for suggestions.
lets see, if the photo is that good, i may submit for POD.

steve, its common among south asian people like us. the gentleman here has a bit darker complexion, that just got reflected in his lips also.

thanks again.

It looks good. I usually dislike the results of HDR processing as images tend to look flat. This one however, looks very natural. Can you post the original photo for comparison purposes? I'm curious as to how it looks in terms of shadows.

Hi jj & all, I have edited out the pen. Tell me which is better ? (I personally think pen makes to the pic a bit more interesting )



Tullio, this pic went through a bit heavy processing (picasa for colour/contrast & then AutoHDR). See the original is here vv .

It looks like you recovered a lot of highlights. Both hat and shirt look over exposed on the original )last pic). The question is, did AutoHDR recovered the highlights or Picasa did? I definitely like the very first pic best.
