photoblog image Is it in her eyes?

Is it in her eyes?

Decided to test my skills. Another pic of my sis, this time a High-Key Image. You never know what she's thinking because she likes to evade questions, probes etc. She can be very intense...even her gaze is, especially when she's assessing you.

Oh and shes not really adopted. Shes a surrogate baby..not really.

Hey Etomi, this is a really unusual approach to a portrait and I like it. I'm not so much interested in how you have processed this image but more in the attitude and atmosphere that you have captured! The pose and look are great. Now can I have her phone number, she's lovely ;-) Mal
E Etomi: Her number is 267...dang I lost my memory smile. She was doing some serious poses and I was just snapping away. I thought this was the worst pic because it was so blown out but it worked for this kind of processing. Thanks Mal

luvthis.
E Etomi: Thanks madam Amebo
hey e,

you really did an awesome job with the pping on this one. i really love the tone and the faint hint of color around the lips. her gaze is pretty intense and you did a good job of capturing it.
E Etomi: Thanks Nicole! I wasn't to sure with it when I was done but now I'm quite happy with it.
Hey Etomi, welcome back. This is an interesting and a nice picture. Having only her lips in colour (preferably red) may also make it more interesting. What do you think? Try it just for the fun. I like the effect.
E Etomi: I'll try it Tony, always up for a creative idea. Right now its just slightly red because I usually don't like the other colour to be overbearing in a colour seperation pic.

I think she really does have beautiful eyes. I'm not too sure about the processing though.
E Etomi: I wasn't either, I kept on looking at it, I must have opened it like 50 times lol. Its different but I like it.

I like the fact that it was an overexposed shot that you made to work for you, I am extremely loving the shot, I have a sghot like this I took once that was overexposed and did exactly the same thing and it turned out lovely.

You get the 1st "I LIKEY" I have given in over 2 months, for the fact you made a shot that most people would easily delete look like a masterpiece. Good rescue, good idea. Always good to think outside the box.

E Etomi: My first I likey...period. Yay
