loved the contrast and the either/or quality of the darks and lights. the framing was good too.

Interesting Compostion but way to blownout and oversharpened. 5
08/21/2005 06:19:24 PM
I think a little less sharpening would help.

i like the high contrast look. good shot.

Nice, but missing something.

A little too bright background. Almost looks like some of the sax got blown out by the bright background.

Nice high key photo. A bit too sharp, perhaps. 8

The crop is interesting and if it were for the trees and the mikes it would look even better. Also I don't really care too much for the blown highlight effects but I imagine you probably did that to eliminate most of the background.

It's a neat idea, but it seems very washed out. It's too white for my tastes. Perhaps a different background would change my mind,

good over exposure....

Very strange bitty textures which I'm not at all keen on, presumably resulting from PP work.

Love the post processing here 10

Not fond of the exposure on this image. A little overexposed? I like the cropping you did here. B/W ?
08/17/2005 09:57:58 AM
to much darkroom to me
08/17/2005 06:33:06 AM
image looks like it has potential, but way too much post-processing for my taste.

The post edit really takes from this shot making it seem too blown out.
