Dennis Veldman 08/14/2007 23:20merci,
I could have had a more blurred background.
IF i had other lenses other than the standard lens, that only goes from F4.0 and in most cases from F5.6
Seen the distance i had to be from the model, and the background right behind her, i couldnt blur it more..
I am happy that the flowers are slightly (for some to less) blurred, and not equal in sharpness of eve.
i couldnt get it more blurred, and thats the reason.
Times will come that i can expand my lens collection, im sure.
for now i do what i can with what i have, unlike many who stop doing anything untill they have what they think they need.
no matter what, i will remain going my own course.
KasiaD 08/14/2007 23:20I liked the original and like this too. The heavy composition with the flowers, cushion and rich dress are all in keeping. There is definitely a regal feel to it and her haughty look.
But maybe a bigger upload to fill my monitor;-)
Robert Riley 08/14/2007 23:20At last! Comments! It has always been a great shot setup, light Post work, everything about says what it is. Would garce any magazine, and with Dennis permission it will go on my wall. Big Pro!
Alfred Spectrum 08/14/2007 23:20If it's not your "cup of tea" you can skip it. If you don't like the picture, and know what you are talking about, that's fine, but I am sure the person who made the picture would want to know why that is, but as it is his/her creation, and a lot of work (and emotion) has gone into creating the picture, it could be hard to take blunt negative comments, and a discussion can easily escalate into mudslinging. Let's be objective, to the point, fair, tolerant and considerate.
Dominique Duriot 08/14/2007 23:20I'm very sad to see some bad comments here!
It's a very nice picture and it doesn't need negativ comments as well around ...
Too many people just vote and go without comments here. We have to be tolerant with others who take the time to comment on pictures and it is the most important, that is the proof the picture is interesting !
Anyway,I agree with Caylal for the flower background, I would see it more blurry too and would add to the face imo. It is just my opinion ;)
But still a PRO*** for me
Great Job Dennis !
Dennis Veldman 08/14/2007 23:20Thanks for your comment mikael,
its hard to see things when you dont undertand whats going on.
what would you like to know?
the title is just a title, i could also name it this
"eve holding flowers with a flowerarrangement wearing an authentic dress, hair in the style that suits the age we wanted it to look like and holding annanomies, looking into the camera and a backdrop made by rob mitchell, who also bring the light and set up, and dennis who made the flowerarrangements and carmelita did eve's make-up and the story is that eve is a fictional queen, not a real one (duh) and we gave the photo this long title because mikael doesnt understand whats going on"
"She doesnt look like a real queen"
well mikael, i could have asked Queen Beatrix (a real queen - queen of the netherlands) but i dont think that she would actually show up.
i think that if you would see Queen Beatrix you would ask yourself...
"is she a queen? - she? her? that woman with that awkward hat?"
Dennis Veldman 08/14/2007 23:20you are right celal.
people who vote and go should take your example and underline why they vote contra.
now don't start a fight here guys and girls.
im sure you know what you are talking about.
all the best with that.
Im not sure who was meant with tit pics, i dont backtrack people's steps or look who comments on what and im not so much into tits, thats something we all know.
except on my models ;)
°°° celle °°° 08/14/2007 23:20yeess, yasemin good childish point.
the only one who has criticise this image was me. annd sorry....that was my objective point of view.
and this image will be getting more than just one contra.
but i did give my reason for this.
and i surly know what i am talking about !
and i am realy pissed off about poeple wich did not respect that.
it is much more easier to clic and go.
but if someone says his opinion , this one is the bogeyman.
i hope u did not mean me,what u talking about the tit pics.?!?!
and if u did....u should try to be careful with ur false assertion !!!
point and out.
