I like where you were going with this. I would like to see you try this same pic with back lit/ silhouette effect instead of direct flash. Then possibly a doutone effect with purple or pink (I don't know anything about duotone so I could be way off the mark.)

And maybe less arm.

Looks like Roger Water's mother was quite avan-garde herself judging be her underwear :G

Ooops, sorry Sydforgot about the serious request

I like it - is it not alittle too precise though, if you know what I mean? Same track (no pun intended I promise) as Shadow is coming from, I think. Maybe needs subduing a bit.

Here I was trying to be serious and you both are letting loose with the jokes.

I restrained myself with great effort. But if those are the neighbour's and she has the legs to go with them. Try pinching them before they get to the clothesline!

Except if it all goes bad, I don't want to see the police mug shot:G.

Shame on you Shadow - I think you're being a tad indifferent to Syd's artistic sensitivities. Being thedelicate sort that he is, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't now have a fit of professional pique

Wonder if he shaves his hands or does the hair stop naturally like that?

I am getting a bit worried about how ISoS always seems to have a banana close at hand:G!

OK no more jokes from me! This is supposed to be a serious thread! I look forward to more covers, my sister is a musician and has put out a couple of CDs already. If she hits the big time I could ask her if you could do a cover for her.

for me the flash ruins the lighting of the arm and the clothes.. it makes them stand out too much and the lighting is so flat an uninteresting that itkind of ruins the night-time atmosphere..

i am thinking maybe use some strong side-lighting as from flashlight or bulb of some kind to make the viewer think of a cop shining his light and catching them..

or maybe pull back a bit and have a little scene of him getting caught?

just something a bit moodier and a bit more storytelling..

i would say the best way to see if it works is to try a couple out.. see which one works best.. get a few friends and set them up.. have a few bananas and a coke or twoand i am sure you'll have a good time shooting as well... hehe..
