Greg ... are you complaining that her lips are 'too hot"? (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
I'm diggin' it because of the processing in addition to all the above.
We use selective DOF, sharpening, color, etc. all the time to focus the viewers attention and I think the processing has drawn us straight to where the action is, even to the point of having an emotive feel to it. It 'looks strangely different' somehow ... but it works for me. I'm guessing a very subtle transitioning high key vignette ... do tell.
Yeah, I guess after being here a while and getting a lot of feedback against blown highlights, I kind of see them as a distraction. While I like the image overall, I just canít look past the hot spots.....thatís just me being nit-picky....and after visiting Bryanís web site, Iím pretty sure he knows very well how to manage them!
