Good Luko 2004-11-10 7:12

Composition is spot on, however you fiddled something with lens blur filter that's not very consistent throughout the shot an dmakes it look like some Large format distorted photos... only half of the character is sharp for instance.. too bad you've done a sloppy work this time... ;)

I discovered your portfolio and like very much your photo work.

Default To Luko: only half of the character is sharp

Luco, you are not saying that picture must be in sharp focus, are you? Many of your own shots are grainy and out of focus too - but it does not make them any less moody or charming... On one hand, I might have crossed the line here with this picture, having too much fun with blur and grain and b/w, I am just fiddling around with the image trying to place accents, direct viewers eyes, create tensions, etc. On the other hand, why not? :)) Thanks for comments!

Hi sergei,

Don't misunderstand me, I'm not saying it should be totally sharp... I simply say that your blur is not consistent enough, it looks like it has been applied randomly in some cases and introduces a sort of local discrepancy where, for instance, two areas would be sharp while the intermediate one would be blurred.

This is the obvious sign that someone has been tweaking something somewhere... why not, did you say? yes, I agree, why not, though i'm a bit on the conservative end...I have no problems with digital retouching when it comes to enhance or improve an idea that is already included, but when too much or too obvious, photoshopping becomes the first role of the play and photo comes second...

btw, I didn't write anything about grain, did I? I would rather be the last person to...
