Windmills and the Willow by JaimeIbarra Windmills and the Willow by JaimeIbarra
Model » Willow [link]

Composited image: Willow was photographed in the studio, and the photo of the windmills-on-the-hill was taken from the window of a Greyhound Bus, on my 60+ hour journey from Oregon, back home to Texas...2 years prior.

Tutorial videos of my post-production and Photoshop techniques are available now at: www.ibarra2.com

Wow! This is just stunning! I think the background photo works perfectly with the model.

Also, you've probably gotten this a million times, but do you know/remember where that dress came from? I love the style so much, and I've never seen anything quite like it. I would really appreciate it if you could let me know where to get one, if possible.

Such amazing editing! The third largest wind turbine facility in Canada, is near my house. I have never managed to make them look that great as a background though...

Love the colours. Love having laced design at the end of the shoulder/arm sleeves. The bodice lace tie-up is very nice to see, and probably works wonders to create a lovely feminine visual figure form. However.. this subject is not a tall girl, and this large bodice is for a taller person, and so I think a smaller bodice with the same criss-cross tie would suit the smaller frame of this little girl :) xx ..Also, I like to point out that the wind farm background is lovely.. wind fan / propellor turbines, but where is the wind and why does the dress skirt not lift with the wind ? :)) ...Perhaps, it's not the best place for the wind farm turbines :)) ..Nevertheless, I liked this pic, and it's in my favs. Thanks.

The photo of the windmills and the photo of the model (taken indoors) were taken about 2 years apart from each other.

And if you look at my other images, you will notice that "realism" is no concern of mine.

I see you are new to DA, so let me be the one to tell you: unsolicited critiques are generally not welcomed. If an artist wants criticism on his/her work, you will see "This artist has requested a critique" on the uploaded image.

But thanks.

Thank you for your message and information.
After reading your message, I was wondering then to myself.. Then what useful purpose does the comment field have, and perhaps profiles should turn the comment field off if possible. A comment is just that, a comment, and as such can go any way, this way or that way.

Yes, I am NEW here to dA. Just JOINED TONIGHT. I have not noticed the "critique request" label on photos.
" 'Thanks' for bringing it to my attention".

As a result I feel discouraged to write any further comments as it is rather pointless and useless and a wasted effort to write the silly simple one or two worded or repetitive general comments... Love it..Great..CooL... or only just postive positive etc etc
It seems the only comments in the comments field that might be accepted are the positive good ones. Well.....

Alright. well thanks for pointing out the "critique request" feature for the uploaded images. I had no idea until you told me.
I appreciate it.

I just saw your pic again and your dA "message" is actually PUBLIC and a reply to my "comment" in the comment field. Well.. Sorry for the "unsolicited critique".

Thanks Bye Bye.

Friend,

Offering pointless and gratuitous criticism is seldom welcome, here or anywhere else--especially when given by one who hasn't bothered to learn the etiquette of the site before they started posting. It doesn't impress anyone, least of all the literally tens of thousands of people who follow Jaime's work here.

Your nitpicking doesn't even make sense. For instance, does the presence of windmills guarantee that wind is always present?

If I were to nitpick, I would point out that, given that the relatively low level of ambient light in the image, a show shutter speed would have been necessary to capture the scene, and that slow shutter speed would have resulted in motion blur of the blades of the windmills if they were moving. Therefore it should have been painfully obvious to you that they were, indeed, still.

Many of Jaime's images are character studies, and the details in those images offer insight regarding the nature of his subjects. Dirt under a fingernail, a scuff on a shoe, a visible bra strap (or even an ill-fitting bodice) shouldn't be assumed to be mistakes, but clues to be gathered and interpreted.

Viewing art isn't about seeing if you can find mistakes, my friend, and if that's going to be your approach here, you're going to piss a lot of people off. And, just so you know, the reasons many artists don't solicit critiques here are that there are painfully few people qualified to offer them. Case in point.

Cheers.

Thailand seems to respect this philosophy and it's working pretty good so far... less signs/rules there are the more freedoms there are, and i would take freedoms over orderliness any day. Also, this guys work is very difficult to make sense of as it is heavily altered in post production... anyone who has played around with Photoshop a bit can see that the ambient lighting is probably pretty high and the shutter speed is also pretty high (around 1/200 i'd guess) the blur you are seeing is a layering technique used to create greater depth of field. In this case, i would guess the background was copied, blurred, and then "overlaid" on top of the original... creating a warm fuzz on the windmills.

The colors and tone of this is just so rich! A nice contrast to the other more softly toned pieces in your gallery. :)
