    :wavey: I posted this on POTN, but OTAP gives me harsher, yet in some ways more honest critiques. Enjoy fuckers.

    first one is great. When I was there I took pics of those green supports because I was going to use it for my OTAP Assignment. Didnt come out the way I thought it would lol.

    Cool shots though.

    To be honest, I'd rather not. It is a boring shot but my PP made it pop out a bit more. So to give away my settings I feel like i'd be selling myself short.

    I basically upped the dark and fill light, burned and dodged, upped the clarity and vibrance, desaturated a bit as well. :hs:
    Thanks for the C&C though :hsd:
