Challenge: Group Portrait (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D

Hoping for over a 6.0. This is my family. My husband Jim,my oldest daughter Nicki (9) and my youngest daughter
Allie (7).

I realize this is completely over done. Yes, way to much neat image for my taste, but ran short on time.

You have a beautiful family, there Jennifer! Only overdone NI is on your youngest daughter. Still a great finish and a priceless keepsake.

I absolutely love this shot. The cowboy feel, as you know with my work sets this above the rest. I love the feel and the contentment in this shot. The expression on his face shows that he really does have it all. I do agree with the neat image being a bit much, but other than that, you should feel extremely happy with a beautiful family and a great shot. Congrats on top 5.

Excellent shot. One of 4 of my top scores for this challenge.

really nice lighting and composition - but too much smoothing of the faces IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2007 11:56:10 PM
Nice eyes, but the man's face looks posterized. Perhaps I'm wrong, but the faces look over-processed.

well composed, well lit, very nice

THis is lovely, however the biggest problem here is the skin of the models looks far too smooth and plasticy. Ideally laying off the neatimage (or noise reduction software) would of been benefical, this shot wouldnt of been awful with a little bit of noise.. Its a lovely BW conversion and a really nice posed shot. I am going with a 7 here, less noise reduction would of upped this at least a point, maybe 2.. well done!!!

Very nice portrait. love the hats :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2007 11:37:58 AM
pp a little too heavy-handed for my taste. No separation on black hats. Great expressions though, and I like the square composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Stunning. Nothing to improve.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2007 02:21:33 AM
haha, awesome... a father with only girls? I am giving this a 10 just because that is a lot of work right there! :)

10/07/2007 07:20:33 PM
very nicely done, have to wonder why not three black hats, but???? LOL overall 8 from me

Works very well as a B&W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2007 08:45:49 AM
Most of the pic's so far have been action or candid, this is one of the few portrait shots. Well done, works in B&W but looks like a bit to much neat image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2007 05:52:41 AM
Very natural expressions and good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2007 02:01:05 AM
Lighting and setup are fine, the picture has got a very professional look. This will probably be a very dear picture to the mother and wife of this family (and to dad as well), but it does not touch me. Therefore, the 7 points I am giving is based solely on technical quality,

a bit cheesy, but good production values. overworked digitally as shadows highlights seem unnatural.

The image is so clean it is almost too clean but I love it. Good choice to use. B&W.

I don't know enough about post processing to know what to call it, but the girsls faces are just a little bit too clear...kinda otherwordly. Other than that, a wonderful shot. (7)

Beautiful work. Very nice tone and clarity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Pretty posing & lighting, but the sharpening/noise reduction is hurting the overall quality of the image. Still very cute.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 01:14:48 PM
Cute portrait but it looks like you used way too much neat image, their faces are odd looking
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 11:57:26 AM
very nice, love the B&W
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 11:44:23 AM
fantastic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 10:40:30 AM
At least this is a legitimate portrait. I think what hurts it is the overall flat feel of it. The lighting or perhaps over usage of Neat Image has given them an almost plastic feel. I love the hats and the carefree positioning but it has a certain flatness to the skin. Not trying to be harsh, just constructive. That's why I didn't enter. ;~D

This is a very nice photo. IMHO it would be a 10 if the sharpening were not as aggressive.
