Looks like youre on your game Mr. Shalaby. Im curious about the brownish tinge to the white paper. Is that from the light or from the post work?

Either way, they look great!

Should've been a little more specific, distance to subject and feathering are the main things I was wondering, the fall off is quite nice.

No harm done ;)

the 64" PlM was approximately 7' high and 6' away at 45degree down and 60degree to the left. hope that helps.

Thanks guys - I'm not really sure to be about the warm tinge 100% honest. I'm at work right now so I'm away from my computer so I can't check the white balance. I remember setting it to 5500K in lightroom though, which oddly enough has a warmer look to it then I thought for your standard "Flash" Kelvin. I'm guessing thats what were seeing.

I set my camera WB to flash, and then adjust in post. What Kelvin do you guys set your studio work to in camera/LR ?

Light set up was a 36" Octa w/ Grid & or 36" Strip w/ Grid. Shooting in such a tight space isn't easy and I wish I had more distance, but grids help... not perfect, but they help.

I'm guessing it is a power line. If it were me I would be cloning it away. But I would also consider cropping off the top. I know that most of the nice lilac bush would be lost and the cool blue sky with clouds, but as it is, the people (the subject of the shot, right?) are sort of small and lost at the bottom. But it is a nice image!

Edit - Oops, didn't read ekie's response about the power line and cloning it out.
