Congratulations on the Silver Medal! Well done!
Dear Olga: A well-deserved win! Congratulations!
Yes Adam - you got the location right! I see what you and Olga are saying about the overexposure of the piece of silver ... and will try to darken it ... but my first thought was that given the light on the boy's body, it is actually a light source in itself
Thanks Olga - I really do need to brush up on technical skills!
Thank you Olga. I have already toned down all the background by about 40% but agree that the white areas are still too bright
Thanks Adam. I have already cropped it quite a bit but will go back to it and see what a closer crop would do. Olga has suggested ways of getting the face a bit lighter!
Thanks Olga -will have to do a lot of homework on RAW and "dodging"
