This all depends on the brightness setting of the monitors...

At home my 'calibrated' monitor black looks just fine, but at work I can see details in the backdrop just like you and the overexpose areas appear too intrusive as well.

On print though it's perfecto - and yes I do prefer the muted color too

You have a good point, I am viewing on a laptop, for now and i am not sure of the calibration although I ran a program to set it. Just dont know if I did it exactly. I however, see the second one as having better overall color tones unless you ae trying for a more artsy feel, then the first one would fit that better in my honest opinion. It is not to say that that is necessarily true, it just looks better on this screen than the first. The photos are both super examples of both processes.

Great shot! This is your best to date IMO. I really like what you have done in PP although I too prefer the background a little darker. Maybe 1/2 as much as Bynx has done. The lighting is perfect for this shot. I would have left some of her natural skin tone as I like the color of it, but I can see what you where after and in this shot it's very well done.

Your portfolio is getting very impressive.

Have you guys got an iPad?
Both images look amazing on that screen

-> May be it's the way of the future as everyone will get to see the exact same thing, color, brightness and contrast etc...

G'day NHL

A very dramatic pair of images
Like the 2nd one esp - and I can relate to your lighting issues - I have similar troubles with my portraiture ... but your images are far better than mine!

Regards, Phil

Default The Model

when you have a model that beautiful or subject that distracts you from the rest of the picture .... it is hard to break things down as to what the picture lacks or doesn't lack or anything else.

I like this image- as is- shadows and all. Nice contrasty,but soft shot- and I like the way the shadows are doing something different with the girls shape...
