Challenge: What DPC Loves the Most (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II
Date: Mar 16, 2011
Aperture: 7.1
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/1600
Galleries: Landscape, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Mar 17, 2011

When I think of what DPC love the most, I think of all the beautiful women I have seen portraits of and then I think of all the fabulous dynamic landscapes that dominate the free-studies. So I thought I would combine them and see what I could get with it.

I am happy how this turned out. It's my first time processing anything like this. I was glad for the helpful pointers I got along the way. Hopefully it will be well received.

Score prediction: I am going out on a limb and going to go with a higher score. Just because I like this one so much. I might get really disappointed on it though. Lets say 6.5 or could be a bit higher.

Yeah! an H.M. This shot turned out much better than expected and largely due to all the excellent feedback I got from some awesome members, Thanks guys!

Wow, Jenn. You are certainly showing you have tremendous range. This is the image I scored highest in the challenge. Nice job on the HM, but I had it scoring higher. Beauty.

Wonderful painting like scene. The water around her lower half seems a little too blurry

Wow. Nice shot. Lovely model, flowing fabric, dramatic skies, mix of textures,... you touched all the bases and handled it beautifully. I would love to hate this shot, but I think that is my envy talking. Very nice.

03/21/2011 11:13:41 PM
Yeah, it's a real standout, Jenn. Glorious.

Someone trying for an 8! Lev or Leo? Maybe not - the quality isn't quite on that level

I keep coming back to this. I predict a blue for you yet if it were my nitpick, I might say I wish we could either see her profile or more of her face. The sky, the wind, the blue/gray and the rich brown with her white flowing dress is pretty spectacular. I bet it would have knock out impact BIG on a canvas.

love the colour, composition and content. Image quality lets it down a bit. Was it taken in very low light maybe. Good luck anyway

Is that you Jennifer? If so, man you are putting out some stellar work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2011 01:31:53 AM
This is very nice work. I absolutely love the processing. Those mountains in the background give the image a stunning three dimensional effect. This is my fav in the challenge and this rec'd my only "10". I predict a blue here! Great job!
