Hello evryone. This is my first post on this forum. I'am a semi pro portrait photographer. I have been shooting for 8 years now, but the last few I have been getting into it on a more serious level. All C&C are welcome. Thanks for letting me share on this forum.

Hi,

It is a goodphoto for framing and put it on the wal for all time....

I like color version more but conversion is also very dinamic and with agressive contrasts...

It seams like it was painted when you look little deeper but it is because od the background I think....

Thanks for sharing..

ZAKD thanks for the kind words. I have seen so many old time sepia shots, and I am never impressed. I was trying something new. To achieve a dramatic 3-D look with sepia tone. Instead of the old flat common look.



Thank you MLP.

I, too, prefer the color version.

3 things I noticed quickly that I particularly liked: how the girl and the boy both got "clipped" from the left and right sides of the frame; the boy's position relative to the girl, so they take up approximately the same amount of space in the frame, though proportioned differently; and the girl's nail polish, which adds a subtle, bright splash against the more somber colors.

This is a really nice portrait.

Necks are a little bit too short, raising the chin a little bit could help alot.
And with the boy another coat maybe.

Posing is a bit stiff bit some people love that.

To me it reminds me of my grandfather during WWII when he was an RAF piolt haveing a hard time fighting with his inner feelings to have to tell her he may never come back. She has that look of trying to stay strong, so he is not sadend more than he is to leave her. Also if you look back in time through WWI to WWII, this picture fits that time period perfect. As for his sepia toned photo. Again Ithink of time how time plays on a picture.

Maybe it is just me.... but it looks like they are PO-ed like they didn't want to do the photoshoot. Nice set up in the studio with lights, and costumes, but it seems that the facial expressions are distracting.
