    Took some pics this morning of my daughter (in the middle,) and two of her friends for a yearbook ad:

    E-M5    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/3.2    1/320s    ISO 200

    Olympus E-M5, 45/1.8, processing in LR3

    The full set is here if you are interested...

    is the vignetting in the upper corners intentional? Is it from the lens or LR? Nice pic...

    It's from LR. There is no vignetting to speak of with the 45.

    Very fashionable young ladies!!!

    The highlights feel a little bright to me. Maybe pull them back a bit??

    Yeah I probably will before the final version. I noticed that when I processed them -- thanks for the feedback!

    Youth here is nicely captured. :smile:

    However, I also noticed the highlights and is it a little skewed? Or maybe the girl on the right adds to the perceived skewness of the photo by leaning into the direction of the skew? (Hope that was clear :biggrin:)

    the first thing i noticed. i think it's skewed just by looking at the lines on the red garage door. but it could just be perception

    The door frame on the left looks pretty plumb, so I think the doorframe on the right is either crooked itself and/or some perspective distortion (i.e. the camera is not a true 90 degrees to the door)

    runs a little hot for my taste - you've blown the red channel quite significantly as well as several areas on the girls' faces and clothing. Pulling back on exposure by even 0.10 stops will fix that. Could also do with a little more sharpening.

    It looks like the perception of crookedness is due to perspective. I straightened based on a horizontal line on the door and it made them look like they were going uphill ;-)

    As for the red channel being blown, the histogram looks pretty clean to me:


    The red channel is definitely strong ;-) but it doesn't appear to be blown. I have upped the saturation quite a bit because the final product will be in a yearbook, which tends to undersaturate.

    Thanks for the comments and keep 'em coming!
