A feeling of migrain

Okay I am definitely going through a phase on my photoblog with Suby type shots! I started this shot with the darkness in mind. I'm not too sure I'm there with this one but with all good things you have to bring them to conclusions.

My day: Now it's Suby's turn to visit me. I wasn't feeling physically well today so I didn't get up to much. I wanted to do some photojournalism photoshooting but nothing came my way that I thought I'd capture.

Atunbi just put up his own version of this shot or at least a shot after/before I took mine. Check it out here.

I really like this one, her position and the light of this pic.
Jide Alakija: Thanks sguardiamo.

Love the scene and contrast on the brickwork. Also love the pink slippers but the skin looks too plasticy compared to the harsh contrast of the steps, for me. Overall a lovely shot though.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Jamey. I did intentionally do the plastic look but maybe a bit too much.

Nice shot. The color doesn't slap U in the face ...... your perception just gently blends into it.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Lahan.

I wish I looked that good when I have a regular headache never mind a migraine!

I like the tones here, the pink shoes jump out at you.

I hope you feel better.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Laurie. I'm feeling a lot better today.

Great minds think alike ooo. I swear i didnt see ya image before my posted and we have posted almost the same image. Anyway mine is better than yours he he he........

Lovely tones partner.
Jide Alakija: I saw yours and it's not exactly similar. So don't compare!
hey jide,

sorry to hear that you are under the weather. i love the pose and composition of this shot. i particularly like the depth that the stairs add to this shot. i really do like the pink shoes, however i think that they distract from the woman's pose and the feeling of the migrain.
Jide Alakija: I did actually process a version without the pink shoes or with a tamed version at least and it just looked really flat. I think the pink shoes add something to the shot as well.

Wow! What a dramatic scene! Excellent!
Jide Alakija: Thanks Sidney.
Haha, did you tell her to pose as if she had a migrain? Lovely tones..smile
Jide Alakija: Actually I saw her hold her head like that and I think I asked her to freeze the pose.

The lighting of the shot is great but it's the compositional elements of the image are really pushing the buttons. I'm wondering is she in some mental turmoil, just been mugged, slightly tipsy? No idea, but it works and makes me stop and think. The scense of perspective of the steps I also like. Mal
ur PP on this is awesome, love how u brought the girl out of the steps by colour toning, well done man
