    technically it looks perfect, good composition and you got the pp down. only thing that bothers me is that his expression doesnt match the "fuck, i am getting shot at, must dodge!" situation

    At first when I saw those streaks I thought it was those air planes in the sky that made it, but realized towards the bottom that one went in front of him.

    But none the less always love your work!

    looks like an American Eagle (or some other clothing company) ad, which I mean as a compliment.


    good work!

    thanks for the comments guys! i'm getting nearly the same critiques from all the forums. I should be making some tweaks later on. Main one is trying to make the bullet trails more convincing.

    Once I finish the series, the somewhat sedated look on his face will make more sense (i hope). I was thinking he'd be USED to dodging bullets, so this situation doesn't surprise him. Oh well maybe i'm making excuses.

    more of the series to come

    If that's the case, I'm sure it's been suggested that the bullet trails need to be translucent rather than opaque white.

    superb shot. only critique would be more motion blur, less smoke trails on the bullets.

    Not saying I could do better right away, but I don't like it. I really dislike composites, and fake skies

    STOP riding your bike in the channel.
    Power line tower/pole on the right side needs to go.
    Lighting on him doesn't match up with the assumed sun.
    Lessen the bullet trails.

    Better than I could come up with.

    i was gonna mention the sun too... distracting, and doesn't match up. And yeah, re-do the bullet trails, they should be clear rather than white.

    Yeah, the shot is very clean but because of the background they look like rockets or chem trails. A different backdrop would make them blend less.

    i'm going for more of a "badass" than surprised look for this character.
    This is the 2nd one i've edited form the set. I think i'll do one more within a few days.
    I'll get around to tweaking the first photo very shortly after. MAINLY the bullet trails.

    was this shot on location or did you just have the LA river picture sitting in a folder for you to use as a background to photoshop into your shoots?
