I don’t get it? You said in your OP that ‘these were done to my own specifications’ That’s why I think you kinda back pedalled a little. You initially said that you had control over the colours, lighting, for these photos and now that they are found to be the worst part of the photos, you only had input in one?
What did you do with the smoke in the 3rd photo? To be honest, that’s what ruined the 3rd photo the most.
What’s the point of this thread??
If your post was to out a Fauxtographer then why did you initially say you had input in the edit?
If your post was to get critique on certain photos then post photos up you had nothing to do with apart from the modelling?
