The Second Portrait by Odin-Lionheart The Second Portrait by Odin-Lionheart
--<DOWNLOAD FOR FULL-VIEW>--

Model: Carolina
Location: Cathedral crypt, Lund

So this brings me to my second set of portraits. This one having more good photos because one, we were shooting in a more interesting place, and two... I got lucky.

Anyhow, these are all shot down in a crypt (old, old one; think it was built in the 16th century) where the light was very scarce. So I had to stretch my camera to the max, despite the lack of a tripod, in hopes of delivering good shots. So I worked with the few lightsources that were avaliable.

This is my teacher's favorite shot out of those I took. He really, really liked the original, but not this edit. However when it comes to anything going in the artistic/graphical direction I will not trust someone with grey hair to a 100% (key rule of mine). I prefer this edit over the one edit I made where I tried to keep it as real to the original as possible while correcting any flaws my teacher percieved.
Actually, here [link] I'll let you make up your mind which is the better myself.

However, due to the unexpected praise from someone who has worked with photography for a long time, I figured it would be a good photo to begin with. The others will be posted one a day from here on so that I will have time finalizing them.

Enjoy!

I like this one better. It seems more focused on the window she is looking out of and she ties in well with the background. The other one seems a little too light and you can't decide where to place your eyes on the photo. Very well done!

Weeell, if the focus is on the window then it's not a very good portrait. But your remarks are accurate, and I too agree with why you like this one more.

Wish I understood about photography and could give you more support and maybe tips... nevertheless, this one is my favorite out of the three, I think it really shows you worked hard. Also, I like this version of photo more than the other one.
Sorry, can't comment with anything better.

Oh no, your comment is quite lovely, and I do not expect anyone who look at it to understand anything about photography. Not even I understand that much. My goal is to make something that looks good on the eyes, not something that is technically superb.

Your support, being of the arch-nemesisy kind, is always well-appreciated in its cunning cincerity. Of course, you have already seen it, but it is still welcome.
