Hi,

I was traveling for 5 days so I wasnot on the forum.....now after I returned, made new session, and before posting the whole session there is one doubt:

Looking in some photos made by pro's they often use on their wotk good amount of yellow-skin look or better say maybe a gold-yellow look.

Here is one photo with two different saturation. First one is original and the second one with added yellow....

Really need your comments about this metter...

Regards Zak

I like the warmer color of the second image, although for me I think it may be a little too yellow. Adjust it down a notch or so and I think it would be perfect. It's a greatshot and I like the pose alot. The only other thing I noticed was the light on the right side of her face and upper arm seems a little toobright compared to the overall tone of the image. I think it would work if it were that bright on the whole right side, but being isolated to her face and upper arm it's a bit distracting.

Could use a little more detail in the black area, but it is a very cool portrait.

Honestly the yellow in the #2 is visible. I would prefer the first one with a natural look unless you can tone down the yellow in #2. Regards. Jaki.

Thanks for reply everyone it helped me to have good photo and now I'm satisfied.

Special thanks to Terry. I was really on wrong way with yellow saturation. Pulling ot the details from black parts was the main thing.

See the results. If you have any other comments or suggestion be free to tell.

Thanks,

Zak

P.S. I was going with this photo almoust from the begginning.:G

Beautiful subject, nice pose and good shot.

Only thing I see here is that her shoulder (right) which is left as I see it from my monitor is a bit hot lighting wise.

Thanks for reply.

She is enough beautifull for my taste (P.S. I will show her complete session in "people photos" in day or two....for now you can see her female-partner in the same session under "People photos"....hope you like them)

Yes that hot spot is bed :sad:for this photo but I think it is too much work to repair and even then I'm not sure how will look after......

For now I will leave as it is....... but will think when having time to try something.

Thanks

Zak

Great Pose, and nice composition. I do agree on the lighting issue on the right side just something about it , too bright. Maybe you were trying to go for a high key here but maybe need to try different lighting. Over all the pose and the comp is great.
