Loving Lightroom — Looking for feedback

I could use some suggestions, feedback, guidance.

I know I’ve gone overboard with some of these — it’s a new toy — but I’d like to know what you think. My favorite is the black and white of the baby. I brought out the contrast then removed the color info. I used a similar technique with the young man but I put color into his skin tone.

The little girl was a fairly, so I distorted the image and played with the color information (I’ll need to learn how to remove selective colors to remedy the wings, putting color in her cheeks brightens the wings).

These are from Tanobata which is officially the 7th.

Increased the color values to improve contrast then removed the color and cropped.

Right Said Fred.

Play with color and angle. I want ed to give the fish in the foreground the illusion of life, hopeful for a double take when you notice the fish in the back. (They were delicious, btw.)

Increasing the color in her skin exponentially affects the wings and background colors. One day I’ll learn Photoshop — then I’m going to just be impossible.

  1. These photos are nothing short of amazing. I love them all but the one of the young man is extremely powerful. You asked for feedback: I’d say you are doing great!


  2. My favorite is the one of the young man. At least the way my monitor reads the color, it’s brownish enough to remind me of the old sepia/brown and white photos. But i like it better than using an all out sepia effect. I like the “suggestion” whereas digital sepia would look too fake. The image makes my imagination wander to different places and times — It looks outside my era, but might be anywhere, any-when.
    Have a great week,

  3. The first with wings is too orange but all the other images are great. I especially like the B&W of the baby and the tough guy with the necklace.

What's that you say? I can't quite hear you. Do you mind writing that down here? ;)
