I’ve just had great constructive criticism on the photo in my previous post “Uninspired” by my lovely acquaintance Tieme at
http://luvo-photography.com/. He mentioned the photo might be stronger if I cropped in closer or used shading as the background could be seen in the lower left hand corner. Hmmmm, I hadn’t thought of that! So back to my editing board I went and here are the results.
- Shading and crop…
- Just shading…
And the “original”…
I still…like the original better.
#1. Unfortunately in order to get rid of the background completely I had to crop on the right side too otherwise it looked off. Now I feel it’s too off center in a way that makes it look like a bad crop. Or is it just me?
#2. In my opinion is better than #1. but again…yep I’m partial to the original.
What do you think?
I love receiving constructive feedback. I’ll be more aware of what the background’s doing when shooting and editing in the future.
Thank you Tieme!
