Not really get a dark or ominous vibe from this one. Its all very bright so its presenting much more as calm and tranquil than dark and ominous. Honestly I think if you dropped the exposure by maybe two stops, did some dodging and burning to keep the contrast between bright and dark, and maybe add or play up the vignette just a bit to keep focus on the girl, it might have the look you say you were going for. Maybe drop saturation a bit as well (though theres not a ton of color in this shot to begin with).
Its still a nice shot. Composition is nice, colors are nice, overall I think its nice. Just really not getting ominous or dangerous vibes from it.
I thought the same thing. Seems too bright for an ominous feeling.
Thank you. This is precisely the type of feedback I was hoping for. I’ll play with the suggested changes.
Yeh you’ve “raised” the blacks it looks like.. keep the blacks deep for a dark and gloomy look
Pretty sure you have the term backwards. You are thinking of raised blacks, not crushed. Crushing them is making shadow details black, raising black is taking the black level and making it gray. While it does look like some of the shadow detail (in her hair) is crushed, they are definitely raised, and raising them is what gives the washed out look.
Ah so I have
I disagree...I think the photos has caught ominous (but I wouldn't say dangerous). Her hair is blowing, the pose suggests a elevated state, the sea isn't flat, she's looking out to something that we can't see, there is a storm brewing etc.
For me, pp, I would look to increase the drama of the clouds and sea a little and, as you suggest, try a light vignette to then guide focus onto the woman
Good shot OP and good effort with the pp :)
Theres loads of potential in this shot - well done OP, do you mind if i copy and process to show you what i mean?
Not at all!
So Luigi, i neutralised the whites and added a gradient to the sky to darken it down a little. Then i made a selection of the girl and added a radial blur to the background. Just a different take - but you had a nice shot to start with, so keep going! This would make a great image for a mental health campaign - 'Don't face the storm alone'
Hope that's useful and has piqued your imagination. Matt
