Otherwise, very nice image.
That's what we see, but due to the text being placed on top of said 'darkness' (whoOoOoo~), it's not what we 'feel' (not as strongly as we could, anyway).
The typography could be better; So that it compliments (or at least doesn't impede) what the shot can communicate to the viewers, instead of disrupting the mood. It's akin to that scenario where Christian Bale flipped the fuck out on Shane Hurlbut for toying with the lights during his emotive scene on the set of Terminator Salvation. I M M E R S I O N _ B R E A K ! The eyes of anyone who reads this comment are going to be drawn to that bold text before they can even read enough of it to get the gist of the entire message. Which perfectly exemplifies the point I'm trying to make. It won't matter that it appears two paragraphs in.
But fret not, editing isn't the model's concern (though, you should probably give a shit). And like I said, the photograph is still cool, in spite of my personal hang-ups over it.
So don't give me sass.
I'll wait. : )
- most great artists don't know much about typography, and many who do are very hit-and-miss with it at best.
- a great deal of those viewing your images wouldn't give a shit if they had a neon-green border around it, because to them, your scantily-clad body would be more than enough. Fine wine is wasted on those who don't have a taste for it, and just want to quench their thirst.
But you seem to be okay with that, in which case, I might as well be talking to a wall. Also, don't get it twisted; I never said there was anything wrong with watermarking or claiming your work. I just said it could have been done more thoughtfully to make an already-nice image even better. No one's shitting on your or the photog's work here.
Lemme know when you get hungry... I'll bring you a Snickers.
It doesn't bother me much, I love this image, but I can see how it would cause a slight hiccup in exploring the photo. Congratulations on the DD.
I can't believe anyone can take up an issue with a small name going across the very, very bottom of a picture. There isn't even anything down there to cover up. ALL the action is at the middle of the photo.
Some people just... need something to be wrong. Watermarks are a common complaint from these people.
