Great Angshu 2010-02-28 21:48

Hello Biswaroop
Both versions are good, but depends on what you want to highlight. If its the facial features, the Black & White works better, but overall the colour works well IMHO. I might have increased the sharpness a wee bit in the Black & White version as also in the original...why didn't you use a shallower DOF to isolate the BG? But a well done portrait all the same

Default To Angshu: Yes...

I agree: sharpness ta ektu kom. Also, the BG is not isolated enough. Both of these problems have the same source: this is a relatively small crop from a 70mm 10Mpix candid shot. Since it's f/5.6, the DOF is pretty large: I should have used a longer focal length. Also, the photo was on the spur of the moment, so I didn't have time to compose the shot with the right parameters. Maybe I should have taken more time... that's the trouble with digital I suppose: I'm not forced to take more time in the photo

thanks very much for commenting,

Default Workshop...

...later today I'll try and do a WS addressing both the issues...the sharpness and DOF! Both can be done in PS, and would do it for fun...let's see!
Best Regards

Wow! Defintely greater DOF (thanks to blurring) and sharpness in PP... Of course, it would have been best if I had taken a better photo (with something like a 50mm 1.4), but thanks very much for the workshop!
