Good EstudioChispa 2013-03-18 11:33

I would typically regard the blown-out highlights in the background as a flaw -- but in this instance, they serve to tell the viewer that the background is unimportant, that we should focus our attention on the woman who is the subject of the foto.
Thank you also for the great explanation of the Narikuravar/Vaagri!
As always, sir, you have a talented eye for portraits!

Default To suedeegan: Thank you, Sue!

I appreciate your feedback! I'll play with desaturating this foto right now -- I think seeing it in monochrome is a very interesting idea!

Thanks also for your thoughts on the sculpture -- did you see the comment from CLODO saying he thought it was distracting? I always welcome people's reactions and analyses; it's enlightening to hear the different perspective and evaluations.

Have a great evening. Beautiful spring day starting here!

Wow, what a genius idea! I've just desaturated this shot, dialed in a very little more lightness and contrast, and WOW! It's a great look -- the slick blackness of his hair shines, the highlights in her hair look great, and (best of all) it ameliorates one real problem area -- the blown out area on his collar!
Thanks for the suggestion!
