Monochromatic Monday

My cousin's wife Laurie.  I loved this picture of her but, it's blurry.  I should have set the camera on auto but, me being me, I had to keep playing with the apeture and exposure. Anyway, I took the picture, cropped it up.  Changed it to sepia and added the vinegrette feature (I'm sure that's not spelled right but, I'm tired and don't care at the moment).    This is what I finished with.

  4. I love it. The glow is really nice and the softness of it is really flattering. Some of us prefer to have our images looking a little blurry as it hides a multitude of sins. LOL
    "Vinegrette feature" - PMSL at that. You've been in that restaurant too long hun.

  8. Maybe shutter speed was a wee bit too long making some camera shake but the actual exposure looks spot on. There are nice skin tones there.
    Looks like you might have been able to open up the aperture a bit - smaller F stop number - and that would have given you a faster shutter speed.
    It's a lovely wee portrait though and you have captured her expression and her sparkly eyes well. It looks nice and natural, she look scomfortable and happy. I like the composition with her peeking behind the tree.
    These are all things that go to make a good portrait and they come from the photgrapher not the camera.

  14. well from a blurry shot to a rather aged look... i think it's executed well...

    thanks for checking out mine.
