Vintage Retrospect of Shelby and Grace by Henriette Brasseur

May 2022 - Vintage Retrospect of Shelby and Grace

About the Image(s)

This image was taken of my granddaughter many years ago on a family visit to Florida. I revisited this image recently and now, with better post-recessing skills, I decided to give the image a different application and applied a vintage look. A sepia tone was applied with reduction of noise and a bit of skin smoothing (though she didn’t really need it). A slight blurred was applied to the background. Image taken with Canon EOS 10D

A superb portrait Henriette. Grand daughters are always beautiful and yours is no exception. Presenting it in black and white removes all possible colour distractions and makes us appreciate her skin tones all the more. She stands out sufficiently from the background, her pose is good, but would it be less if her head was up just a touch, to take away that long stretched line on the left side of her neck? Regardless, a wonderful portrait and memory to be cherished for many years to come. Your processing is first rate. One for you and her to be proud of.   Posted: 05/20/2022 03:39:57

Is the story about Shelby or Grace? Since (I assume) Shelby is so very white/bright, it leads me to believe it is about the stuffed dog and how much it is loved by Grace. However, you could establish more of a relationship between the Shelby and Grace if Grace's face and neck area were lightened as if to share the spotlight with Shelby. B&W is a good retro choice as it represents a memory, a moment frozen in time. All othe procerssing well done!   Posted: 05/22/2022 11:09:46

Beautiful portrait Henriette. Her expression and the way you captured her eyes are very engaging. Going to monochrome gives it a great vintage look. This is definitely one that should go up on the wall.   Posted: 05/22/2022 14:19:49
