    Chris, Uh.. LOL, I dunno.. Why?
    Just so you know... that coach is pretty old... from the looks of the tar roof, and running gear its from the '20-30s... the only thing I see thats strange is that the bearings are roller bearings which may make it newer... just some background information... =)

    Chris,

    Your work has gone from excellent to incredible! I wish I had your talents, both as a photographer and a lab man. Great job!

    Chris...those shots are awesome. The word for me that best describes the first photo is...explosive. Such vibrant colors and each one stands out on it's own. Your subject is, of course, gorgeous which adds to it. Her eyes certainly "pop" in the second photo.

    My being an amateur probably hinders me from conveying what I truly think of the photos, but just know that I think they are awesome.

    Thanks all

    I really have been doing a lot of reading, and for me to pull this off with a 1.6 sensor, I am really looking to move to a bigger camera, but I would like to continue pushing this as far as I can with this XTi and my Sigma collection of glass.

    In all I do love all of the positive remarks, but I am also open to CC too.
    I dont always see the things that you folks see.

    Chris,

    You're right. I was so blown away by these shots at first that I forgot to look for stuff to be improved. Here's what I see:

    In #1, she looks to have a hot spot on her chest above the bra. Her face seems a little dark. Also, did you lighten her left foot? I think if it were a little darker and if the shoe was brought out of the shadows more it would be more effective.

    In #2, the only thing I can see is that her left foot is cut off, but I'm not sure how important that really is.

    Really, really nice.

    I like them alot Chris! Thanks for sharing the behind the scenes how to. My only critique would be her pose in number 1, something just doesn't do it for me, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

    On a side note, my husband loves your work He calls you the Amazon photographer LOL
