Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Square Crop (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Lens: Tamron AF 28-105mm f/4.0-5.6 IF for Canon
Location: Family Room
Date: Mar 3, 2006
Aperture: f/3.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/90
Galleries: Abstract, Interior
Date Uploaded: Mar 3, 2006

Took a picture of my living room. Printed it out. Cut out the window. Took a picture of my son looking through the window. Lighting is natural lighting from a nearby window.

I wish the printout of the living room was better quality. And I wish I did a more careful cut out job. I still think it's cool.

Processing:
Increase exposure & brighness in RAW
Crop
USM
Dodge the eye
Fix rough cutting edges
Increase brightness again
Increase saturation
I think that's about it

very cool - I find myself wishing for something more than flesh-tone colors in here

the face if flawless, but there seems to be a little bit of noise in the house

Brilliant idea, well executed, but the foreground objects are a little too distracting IMO. Also you've got yourself a halo tree!

Very interesting idea. Needs just a bit more contrast.

very good idea. Inspired by Jean perhaps? The problem with this shot i find is that there is alot of the same colour: beige/skin colour. Had the colour of the inside of the house been another, like blue (Jean's photograph), the face peering in would have look alot more like a curious intruder. Here the face blends in to much I find. Good work though.
