Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

For todays shot I have gone for a simple Portrait shot and I have the help of the most beautiful woman in the world (who dares challenge that statement remember just how HUGE the Subster is LOL).

I really love the PPing done to this shot, This went from an okay shot I would not want to frame and put on my wall to a wow, I AM FRAMING THIS AND PUTTING ON OUR WALL shot. I took the Original shot at a party at night and this shot was not planned, Sinem was looking in my direction and ofcourse I snapped her lovely smiling face. On getting home, I thought, Love this shot, what can I do to ensure this is a unique shot? A little bit of PP magic and we have this.

I know there are people out there that say, "why not get it all right 1st time?" "Or you should have left the image untouched as PP ruins images". Well I say this, it's not all the time we have all the factors in place so that we are able to capture that PERFECT image. Sometimes you may capture an image like the one above where the lighting & background are plain pants. What to do I ask you?

Dig deep and with the skills one has learned, enhance the shot to help rescue that wonderful image lurking within, or scrap it?

As I said, this is one of those Uniqely PPed shots I would be proud to put on my wall (and will). Would I do that of the original? NO.

Tsk,tsk, ... of course I would frame the "original picture" on my wall! ;-)
But I admit you did an extremely good work in PS. And the last version is way better.
Suby & Sinem: Sorry Sidney, she already spoken for smile Thanks for the comment

Damn right, you need the PP....i mean look at this shot, ITS AMAZING....no matter how good a photographer you are you'll never get this sort of thing by just snapping the shutter.....great one suby....9/10
cr=10/10
ADVICE TO ALL - DO NOT CLICK ON THE ORIGINAL....this is a beautiful shot, and i dont know why you would want to spoil your perception of it by seeing the original...sorry suby, but that had to be done
Looks like you put some powder over her face. hehe.

I like the isolation you've done to this one, makes it look like a painting. I also like the original shot. Sinem is a real looker!
Suby & Sinem: He he he, me the lucky fella. smile

Very lovely processing here Suby. Sinem is beautiful as ever.
A pity really you couldn't retain and/or accentuate the mascara.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Deji, now which bit of makeup is the "massacre" :d smile grin

That is a beautiful save of your beautiful wife's portrait!! Yes, it is a wall hanger for sure! But what I really adore about this image is the look of completely filled-to-the-brim love she has for you! (Although that is a little more noticealbe in the original.)
Suby & Sinem: grin
Thanks Micki

Suby
Aren't you the luckiest? Not only is she beautiful, but the camera loves her. Great save, Suby, although both images are nice, i prefer the lighting (effect) on this one.
Suby & Sinem: Maybe oneday I will be able to do one of you as well smile

Ohh I love this picture ... the PP here is awesome ...
Well, the smile is absolutely charming and disarming too!!!

I dont have anything against PP ... In fact I absolutely love dramatic treatment of photos ... and wish to learn it someday!
lovely shine, nice portrait smile

Diya

Bros. I can onlysay not as beautiful as my beautifulgrin
Really like the PP work!! The look is more dashing. I guess I'll be doing a lot of this over the next couple of weeks

She is lovely.

I can see why you did the processing but still not my cpu of tea.

A well done studio "type" shot would work better and wouldn't need all the pping.
Suby & Sinem: Yep she me wifey smile (beats chest with pride).

If only i had a studio me thinks grin

It's dark, but she looks very radiant. It's one of your signature shots.
