Default 3 pictures of people

Here are three completely different pictures from the same party.

I would appreciate any coments, critisms and ways of making them better or of taking better pictures in the future.

Hi sound engineer...

Good subjects

Here is some (requested) feedback...

Subject 1 - perhaps you could enhance the highlights
of the subject - skin tone, etc.

Subject 2 - sorry, a young girl smoking is a turnoff!

Subject 3- GREAT pose...I did a little work in PSP7 to
to hopefully enhance her features...and the wonderful
line of sunlight that "etches" her profile.

I also edited out either a very small diamond (or a hot
pixel on the right side of her nose).

Great editing and thankyou both for your comments.
I just got photoshop 7.0 yesterday and I am waiting for the book to arrive in the mail from England. I understand how you cloned the grass to remove the black salad bowl, but how did you remove the extreme sun haze from the third girl? That is a wonderful effect.

Hi,

I love the third one, I think the enhancement of the third one was done with levels a VERY VERY powerful tool if used wisely.

The second one is also a turnof for me, I don't like smokers (also on pictures).

The first one and third one are the ones I like.

Greetings,
Frank

Thank you, sound engineer, for your kind words.

Just one question...

When is the next party?

You see, I have some annual leave to burn up this year
and have not visited Norga (hope I have that right)

I do like the one where she has a fag in her gob - that's life, it captures the moment and everybody to their own.

First one is good too.

That's a stud in her nose. She won't thank you for pinching her jewellery!

The standard way of reducing haze is to use Unsharp mask with very high Radius (200-ish), strength around 40-50. Works like a charm, but gives some increase in noise.
