Hi all, i'm new.. my name is Jenifer and I am a sahm to my 15 month old daughter Lauren. I will prolly be a frequent to this board as I am very interested in photography. I asked for critique on another board and a couple ppl edited it to their liking and i'm wondering which one more ppl think looks better..
Hi Jenifer, to the board, it's SO great to have you here. I really hope you do stick around and join us, we love having newbies.
I think I like #3 the best...I'm guessing that #1 is the original? I like the boost in saturation in #3 and it also looks like it's been USM'ed a bit, causing it to look sharper. Great shot, she's ADORABLE, is that your little girl?
ETA: I'm a bit slow tonight...I now see you posted the first one was your original, duh on me!
I really liked the way #3 made her eyes look. Thank you for the welcome.. i've lurked here a few times and am a part of a diff. photography forum but they are a little above my head sometimes as I am just learning. I don't use any photo editing software, still trying to decide which one is right for me.. and easier to learn. That is my daughter and she is my most favorite subject!!
I lurk on a few other photography forums as well...I learn a lot just from reading, but am too intimidated to post much. That's what is great about here...we have girls at all levels, so nobody has to feel out of place.
I can't wait to see more pics from you!
i really like the crop on number 2, i think this pic has to much pink in it for me, her face seems very pink. i ran a B+W action on this and did some other things, i like it in B+W much better (that my opinion)
You don't need to take it down, I like it. I liked the crop too and I love the eyes in it but it did seem a bit oversaturated. The edit with the frame was done by a pretty good photographer but I kinda like my original better, but cropped. I played with light alot that day and took about 100 pictures lol poor Lauren, I call myself the mamarazzi.
There are a few of us mammarazi on this board, myself included!
Its tough to say which one of these is my favorite edit...I like something in all of them. I love the crop of #2. But I don't like the extra noise in her pic.
Maybe try #1 with the crop of #2, and a bit more sharpening & USM.
