Default Great Masters

Hi guys,

Just finished working on this portrait. I was looking for an effect similar to that used by the Great Dutch Masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer.

The shot was subject to extensive Post Processing, utilising a restricted palette of colours to get the desired effect.

Anyway, feedback would be greatly appreciated.



Many thanks

I think it is excellent composition, but the WB is wrong to my eye. The hand looks blue enough to be dead and there is a greenish-yellow cast around the face that is not flattering. Perhaps that was what you were going for, but it doesn't work for me.

Hi, Thanks for the comment. Could I just ask, are you viewing the photo from a calibrated monitor, as on mine all the colour tones are gold. No green or blue!

No, it could be that. But I haven't noticed problems with color rendition in general.

Brilliantly done. I can see what you are referring to using Johannes pointillé effect and the transparent layering effect. I think this one is very nice! Well done Frank
