Winter Beach Portraits : LUSENET : B&W Photo: URL Review : One Thread

My site currently features portraits that were taken along the Texas Gulf Coast during an unseasonably warm January. I would appreciate any comments, questions, or critique.

On my monitor & considering my taste in prints, it looks like your images would benefit from more contrast.

I saved one and 'photoshoped it' - increasing the contrast & I sure like it much better.

Hi Andrew

I enjoyed looking at your photographs. There is something very optimistic about them. However, rather than showing many decent photographs, try critically assessing your photos and select the few that you think really stand out- those that captured a "decisive moment" and are compositionally strong. A smaller number of excellent compositions always has more impact than many adequate shots.

I agree with Asher. There are some really excellent pictures here, but the less good ones take away from the quality of the site. I don't really agree with the first comment though; the soft light and low contrast are in keeping with the mood of the pictures. A lot of really nice photos here.
