Glad you didn't do it :). The image has a velvet feeling to it. Thibaut Froehly - July 24, 2018 john Garrett Thank you for pointing it out John. I usually compare saturation to salt in cuisine, a touch is sometimes enough! :) Lambrinos Papaioannou - July 23, 2018 beautiful dodge and burning to create more texture Thibaut Froehly - July 24, 2018 Lambrinos Papaioannou I did some dodge and burn, my aim was to re-create depth and emphasize the direction of the light. Michael Moon - July 23, 2018 Absolutely gorgeous! Thibaut Froehly - July 24, 2018 Michael Moon Thank you Michael! Ara H. - July 24, 2018 Absolutely beautiful! I'm tempted to say I would've liked to see a tiny bit more contrast, but like you pointed out, it's a personal preference similar to salt :) Well done! Thibaut Froehly - July 25, 2018 [Edited] Ara H. Yeah that's definitly a personal choice. For the past year, I worked a lot find and get the look I had in mind. I made a long 500px/facebook pause, not to be influenced or to try to please someone other than me. Now that I started on fstoppers, I see the big "gap" between my pictures and the other ones in terms of contrast and saturation, but now I'm stuck with my own style :) When I review photos, I am also tempted to say "it would have been so much better with a touch of this or this", but now I try to make the difference between objective and subjective feedback. I won't go in the details, but to summerize now I judge mainly by two things: emotional impact (personal and subjective, eventhough we are all humans with similar feelings) and the quality of the work (objective), I try not to take a personal style that is not mine in account. Thank you for your comment by the way :) Mario Valkenborg - July 25, 2018 EPIC shot ! Like it a lot, leave it as it is .... Thibaut Froehly - July 27, 2018 Mario Valkenborg Thanks Mario!
