Just wanna put this out there, Chuck and Spencer and Sam and many others don't copy Tony. They might be inspired in other ways, but I've not really seen a "statement" shot like this from them all. They all specialize and rock it out in their own unique way.
Good shot btw, but I'd like to see it punch up a lil with the processing. It's a little too safe, needs more drama.
A lot of ppl have understood that I'm just practicing a technique of a shot that I admired by Tony. When I posted my first attempt of a shot, someone chided me for not crediting Tony, so I wrote the subject title with a bit of a sense of humor -- although, the truth is, it really was inspired by that shot by Tony.
But I'm not Chuck or Spencer or Sam. I'm me. I'm not less than them, and I'm not more than them. I'm just me. I have my own style that continues to develop and change over the years. I like to try new shots, experiment, and it seems this is a good place to post for feedback. Until you get ripped for being a copycat and not having an imagination or your own style. I happen to really like this style of a shot, whether it's raininig or not, and many of my clients request. If I'm going to shoot this, like any other shot, I want to perfect it as much as I can, and that's why I like feedback. Feedback on my technique, not on whether I'm simply copying someone. But if I was going to copy someone on this board, it'd surely be Tony.
I do appreciate the many comments complimenting me on the shot and giving advice on how to improve it.
I really thought this thread died...
