Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Re: The apple of my eye part 2

I'm surprised no one has commented on these pictures yet so I'll add my 2 pennorth. Firstly I think you have a very pretty and appealing grandaughter. Having seen the original in the other thread you posted I think the blurring has been effective and definitely concentrates the eye on her face. With regard to the toning of the eye, I'm not so sure this works for me. Its not just your attempt, its the technique in general. If I'm honest I think it makes people look somewhat spooky and not natural. In this instance I find it hard to look into the eyes as if she is trying to cast a spell on me IMHO the technique of toning eyes is overused and somewhat clichéd.
