Just a Boy

Tiffani S. LaNeave 3/31/2006 6:59:10 AM

I brightened a tad per the advice of CJ:

love the composition of this tiffani! would like to see it just a tad more brighter (maybe adjust curves a smidge)...but I LOVE the mood, color tones and comp!! great idea...and super cool look for his age! he is sooo cute!!! going to break some hearts I see!

I like the first b/c I thought it really created a mood, but I like this too. I can't decide! I normally do like brighter images! So I'll probably end up liking this best! I'll attach the first too. Thanks CJ!

Nice prtrait! Love the effects and tones. #2594032

Great looking image, has a mood all its own. I actually like both versions, Tiffani. Sometimes a little dark works, but the lighter version is very good as well. #2594056

cj patterson 3/31/2006 7:48:37 AM

tiff - I like them both - how about somewhere in between...i think the lighter is little more light than I meant...i really meant just a "smidge"...but they both look great!!!!

i think if you can get the lightness in between the two, I think it will be just perfect - but this is just my opinion!!!!

I would love to be able to do that too, but I ran an action on it and when I adjust curves it tends to make it look yellow and he looks jaundiced!:) Not cute! So, I did auto levels and came up with this brighter version. I like both of them, can't decide! #2594157

cj patterson 3/31/2006 8:00:57 AM

i like them both too...

i probably like the lighter one the best! it looked good in the thumbnail...i really love the shot...i think it is very cool and age appropriate for this young man...a young james dean! :) #2594171

Wonderful composition here Tiffani, he is sooooo handsome, I love this serious yet casual look he has. #2594620

Wende Trew 3/31/2006 5:26:39 PM

Wonderful portrait Tiffani! The only thing that I see is his one eye is a little to dark on the left! Other than that fantastic image!! #2595558

Tiffani S. LaNeave 4/1/2006 2:04:34 PM

Thanks Wende! I was practicing with all natural lighting and the window was to the right of him so it did make his left eye a bit darker. I see what you mean. I'll have to see if I can touch it up for print! Thanks for pointing that out! #2598047
