Hello,

Here is a grunge portrait I was recently working on, but I, for some reason, do not seem to like the edit that much. If anyone could tell me what they think or what I can do to make it better that would be great.

Thanks.

Here is an updated version of the previous grunge portrait. Let me know what you think.

The problem I have with your photo is the pose of the woman. Or rather where her eyes are looking. They are so far up she is obviously looking at something important. We have no indication what that is and it overpowers anything else you are trying to do.

Hello shooting_rubber,

Hey . . . interesting post.

IMHO, the image is too clean to be grunge & to stay with the grunge theme, I think that you don't need to lose her into the shadows on the left side. (Although if this wasn't suppose to be grunge, I'd like that effect.)

Have you thought of doing a "treatment" to her image? Sorta like that look of taking a nice picture and then running it through a bad photocopier so that you can cut it out and then paste it down to make a collage poster?

I did a quick scan of http://www.google.com -- image searches and came across this reference image.

Take care, yours truly,
Glen
