Two For One

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

A shot of 2 of the boys from our last High School Re-union. I like the shot cause I managed to catch the guys at an interesting angle. I do like the fact that one is very in focus (sharp) and the other is not, the different contrast sets the tone for this shot, in fact it could be called "a tale of contrasts". One smiling, one not, one in focus, one not, one on the left, one on the right..........

the rest can be left to the imagination.

As an artist the first thing I would say is this picture cut in half would make two seperate picture that would have no relationship with each other... and as such I feel that the whole composition lask a certain harmony.

I have a feeling also that the over pocessed effect ( Look at the polarized effect on the second guys face) is not working, whereas it might work for a graphic or artwork in a mag or book etc...here, as a photo I feel it is abit too much!

Skee "double" dazzle back baby smile
Suby & Sinem: The Skeeelooo, Welcome back bro, I hear where you are coming from bro, and its for the reasons you mentioned above I feel this shot actually works grin

The Subster.
P.s
Looking forward to learning a few tips from your carnival series
Not bad Suby...very different from your normal style.
Suby & Sinem: As someone pointed out, very Alakija like, is that correct? I think it is.

Interesting shot. I like the focus on one and the space between them.

love it, the contrasts work well for me. And as the colours are dark and rich, I give it 2 thumbs up.
Suby & Sinem: This is one of the 1st images I have PPed this way, I am really glad it gets a 2 thumbs up.

Very good game of lights and contrast. I like it. smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Angus,

Suby
The lighting is quite strong but still it doesn't take anything from the picture, Nice one
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Sola, There is soo much one can do with lighting in capture, I feel I have not even started to scratch the surface in this field, so my next hurdle to cross will be to do with lighting, Need to really go out and buy some equipement.

Suby & Sinem: Since you mentioned it, then IT IS sad

Just jerking your chain around. I know you always say what you think, never feel the need to explain yourself. I will still always say things as I see it. Thanks for the comment.

Not really into this shot...the lighting on the man on the left is too harsh, perhaps too processed and looks, not sure the technical term but his skin looks "sweaty" to me.

The composition seems disconnected to me. It's just ok.

It does seem you captured a nice mood. The guy on the right somehow looks put off by the whole thing, was he not happy to be there or was he just uncomfortable having his picture taken?
Suby & Sinem: He he he he he. I knew you was going to rip this shot apart, not your sort of thing. Thanks for your comments Girl, maybe you will like the next edit do this way.

It's a very candid natural capture and works very well for me. the natural light falling on the man on the left has added some lovely contrast.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Mal, shot is a mixed bag, works for some people, does not for others grin I am glad it works for you though.

Smiling or sad? Their expressions have potential to beat the Mona Lisa smile smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Shuva, I am glad you like.

Ok ok we get the contrast(s) here tongue only problem is his face is tooooooooo sharp (I mean it might actually look mutated or something if its sharpened 1% more with bulges coming out of every corner) easy on the sharpeneing, and blur a little more, and Id like it better. Well Im not a fan of people shots anyways.
Suby & Sinem: He he he, you make me laugh, 1% more and it would have popped out of the screen? LOL

Beautiful portraits!
This is a very cool capture and great processing...the light on the guy closest to us is perfect....great atmosphere. Phil

Just been through the archive to catch up on what I've missed lately and had to comment on this one in particular.

Looks like you have done some processing - perhaps a bit of dodging and burning? Maybe multiplying layers and selective erasing of the top one?

Whatever you've done, I'm going give you the benefit of my opinion.

"Outstanding!"

Great framing. I can't put my finger on it, but it really whorks.
Excellent photo Suby. Sharp detail. BTW, thanks for your comment on my Gannett photo ... I can't believe I'd see the day where Suby thought something was perfect. Ha! wink
Wow, great portrait! Love their expressions and how well you used DOF!
