This is one of my friends from college. I needed to do a photo shoot for a class and so I got a couple of my friends together and we went out for a nice photo shoot in the corn fields of Indiana. Not exactly exotic location, but I hope I made it seem a little nicer than it really is.

Nice try. But the light is very contrasted here. Some edits would be fine.

You have a pretty friend. Very nice ethnic touch. I like the picture, except that I think the sky is just a little too bright. I like the B&W though.

I'd rather be here, than where I'm at

I think that Pierre up there gave you some good advice, but overall, I like the appeal of this ...cornfield or no cornfield!!!

The composition of your image is perfect, the character is on the right because she looks on the left. Jim is right, the highlights are too burned because you focalized on a dark part of the scene, and the B&W gives a part too dark on the shadows. Next time try to use a little bit of flash to light the shadows a bit. Hope this advice could help you.

Having seen both this image and its rework it's difficult to say anything new. The treatment of this one does have an 'authentic' feel in that the graphic qualities speak of a harshness of light and conditions which fit the title of the image really well. Tommy

Click here to see WHITBY through the lens of Frank Meadow Sutcliffe! PS I have no commercial link but Sutcliffe's photographs are historical! and any photographer worth his salt should at least know the history of their subject. He is one of the reasons I consider myself lacking, by the way. TG

This is a fantastic shot! I saw the re-work by ppigeon as well. That's gorgeous, too. I thought I should write this comment to give credit to the original creator. Well deserved!

Stunning work, Both the re-worked version and the original composition above are excellent. 10/10 to you both.

Just stopping by, Ian, after having viewed Pierre's rework of your very good composition and photo here.

If not for the strands falling across her face (slight visual distraction) ... and although fairly contrasty ... I would definitely take a curtain call on your effort here.

For me, the contrast works to an extent ... as it does halve and accentuate the expressions on either side of her face. Two looks for the price of one, if you will.

Still ... nice composition and although I have already thanked you on Pierre's reworked image's page ... seems only right to do so here as well. :o)
