Challenge: Oops! (Classic Editing)
Camera: Olympus D-550Z
Location: Road in front of my house.
Date: Aug 31, 2003
Aperture: f4.0
ISO: 60
Shutter: 10/1000
Galleries: Humorous, Emotive
Date Uploaded: Sep 2, 2003

My first EVER set up shot. Didn't have enough time though to realy get what I was looking for. Took the best shot (Love the expression and the lipstick smudge was perfect!) and sharpened, desaturated all the RGB and Cyan and Yellow and pushed up the Magenta a touch. I like the effect but wish I had a better shot to play with...(closing eyes, crossing fingers, hitting submit.)

good selective color use. wish her lipstick was even redder to contrast the b/w.

I have seen lots of ladies putting on their makeup in the car on the way to work, so this oops could really happen. The red shows on other places than the lips but that is okay with me - I like the photo.

Really good composition. Desaturation effect works very well in this shot. Great focus on the face.

Good use of color and BW. Looks like you went a little too saturated with the color, can see it in the hair.

Great idea and shot. Farding and road bumps, yes...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent, made me laugh..composition is good, desaturation is good, except for the bit around the nose and in the hair and under the light pole....good job

Great idea...how do you do that without spot editing?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 02:05:19 AM
Great take on the challenge, you didn't quite get rid of al the other colours though, i.e. flowers at the stem of the tree, right hand side.

need to work with photoshop more, you have alot of pink in both sides of the hair, and all in the mouth, and on the nose.
