warm them a touch
I'd call the last one "Progression of Drunk"
closeup of cake toppers
they is all warmed up, and I redid the edit on the black and white, cuz I didn't like the added film grain.
gimme some feedback here peoples!!
More coming, as I get some free time here at work...
Balloon head and glowing rat tail bothers me in #3
ok. now that's what i'm talking about.
Would dodging it out do anything, or would any trace of it still have the same effect?
keep it coming guys!!
That will probably work, but it was initially just thinking clone stamp it out, but I also have the habit of just clone stamping like it will going out of style. It's just too close to the same luminance as her face that it distracts my eye. His rat tail is less distracting, but it's such an easy fix that I figured I'd mention it. Little cake groom giving head is a little funny too.
#1 she had a weird shadow going across her arm and remove the stray hair across her head.
Not sure if you can re-crop #4 a tad to the right to better balance it and get the guys hand in. Not a biggie as I like that photo anyways.
they are all great, but nothing "wow"ed me
yup, narcotics detective... How'd you guess? thin blue line?
Oh, and fwiw, I wasn't the photographer, I was the best man. I shot these for the hell of it. The groom is my business partner and the other photographer for 32 counties photo....
Did you get mah email?
Looks like she really likes that cake. I like the last picture.
yeah, i saw the pin, but wasn't quite sure that's what it was.
another one i edited this morning:
and here's the cake toppers:
#1 her 1 strand of hair on her forehead bothers me
aw they're a cute couple.
this is the last time I ask you guys for c&c.
Exposures look good and the images are sharp.....but the edges of the couple look a little odd on the first, like too much burning. The second image looks the same but it also looks like some soft filter was applied to the edges.
aaand... You nailed it. I was trying to burn down the background... the wall is the same color as their skin, and the picture frame coming out of her head was getting on my nerves.... So I tried 2 different methods to see which looked better...
I'll repost it without the dogde/burn/blur layers when I get to work to see if you guys think I'm creating more issues by trying to fix one that wasn't that annoying to begin with...
ok... so is my post work fucking up my game?
^ IMO the bottom one is all around a better pic.
when you touch up faces do this:
cmd + J to duplicate current layer
do your cloning and adjustments
adjust opacity of new layer to find perfect amount
as for the shadow, it seems like you just did a sloppy job cleaning it up i'm sure you could do better if you put some more effort into it.
I didn't notice it, but now that somebody pointed it out, I can't stop looking at it. It's like the bulge in that tranny's pants from the other night. *Insert Crying Game shower scene*
see, this is what I come to OT for.
I knew I was having an off day with the processing, and no one pointed it out.
should I just leave it as is, tone down the color a bit so it's not as close to the skin tones, then call it a day?
unnaked - does my cleanup job, or the shadow itself bother you?
It's the cleanup job. He's got a halo and there is bleed over on both "Sides" due probably to your feathering being set too high. Where his collar ends and shoulder are begins is where my eye really picks it up now since there isn't a lot else going on and it's extra sloppy. Also, his shadow on the wall is still apparent because it was burned along with everything else, except now it doesn't really look like a shadow, but instead some kind of weird aberration.
I'd say remask. Clone out the shadow, the re-burn to desired luminance, and it you have to cheat, cheat over the outline of the groom a pixel or so...and maybe fix that harsh shadowline on her arm and the hair on her forehead.
