A Portrait

I got a great Picture of Q at the playground.  I’m not sure what edit I like best.  Although they all look a bit too grainy to me.

The original:

With a dreamy filter:

With a greywash:

  1. no coments yet? guess I’ll go first…

    Photography is like writing – know your audience. Are you trying for a shot to please others, just yourself or both? Which is best depends on what you want to show.

    To me, the dreamy filter is a snapshot of a boy, the b&w is more of a portrait (although I’d darken it a bit more)

    But that’s me and I like black & white and trying to show a soul; I’m not much for snapshots.

  2. I’ve never thought of photography as having an audience, but you’re absolutely right– it does. I do like the dreamy one, but I thought the B&W showed off his eyes more. maybe I will try darkening it and see if I like it. Thanks for the comments.
