Festspielhaus Bayreuth: Post-processingEdit

It's getting awfully silent again, so here's one of my recent uploads to discuss. While any kind of comment is welcome, I'm mainly interested in your opinion about RAW development/post processing. I'm still trying to get the hang of this, and I'm going back and forth between "looks OK" and "I've went too far", so my main question is: Does this look over-processed to you? As always: please don't hold back, I can take it ;-) Cheers, --El Grafo (talk) 10:02, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

    • Mmmmh, didn't expect that. But since it comes from you, I guess I'll give it a try. Thanks! --El Grafo (talk) 09:46, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

West high land white terrierEdit

Thank you in advance for any feedback you can provide Regards --Cvmontuy (talk) 18:45, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Hi Cvmontuy, some quick thoughts: Focus is right on the eyes – well done! But the lighting situation could be improved in my opinion: It looks like she's sitting below a lamp hanging from the ceiling. Most of the hair on the top of her head is overexposed, you've lost quite a bit of detail there. On the other hand, the area around her mouth and especially the lower parts of her nose are pretty dark. Maybe try to find a spot with more even/less direct light, or add a second light source from the side. The bright pillow in the background is a bit distracting for me. Otherwise a charming portrait, I like the upright ears and the slightly tilted head: looks like she's paying close attention to what you're doing with that black box in front of your face ;-) --El Grafo (talk) 08:13, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, very good comments, best regards --Cvmontuy (talk) 20:26, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
