Did a fun little shoot with my wife over the weekend and noticed a shot I could not pass up shooting without my SMC Takumar 50mm. Take a look and let me know what you guys think.

Someday you'll look back and cringe at the gimmicky processing. Otherwise, a fun capture.

Please define gimmicky processing because I added no effects to this photo? I brightened the color on the flower and corrected skin flaws, contrast and levels but the color tone is actually off the light and the lens.

I'm interested in this as well. I remember reading this when it was first posted and I wondered about it myself. I see nothing gimmicky, let alone anything to cringe about.

My only comment would be that her face is a little hot.

If I had to guess he thinks you dodged your wife to light her up, but not the overall exposure. She is a little hot (meant respectfully in the photographic sense) relative to the bench and the background, but from the shadows I'm guessing that is low, golden hour light. If her hand were tipped down a touch it would be in dark shaddow like the bench.

using a reflector or flash to slightly boost the bench would allow for a more pleasing lighting situation imo, just to knock down the range in the foreground. Otherwise, its lovely.

Dont worry about people that drop grenades and run Without explaining. they are not worth the time.

He is probably referring to the heavy vignette and the desaturated look. I don't know anything about this lens but does it naturally produce that look to the image?

Looks good to me.

If I changed anything, I'd darken whatever is behind her so it does not seem like something coming out her back. Is is a seat back?

But a change so its not too similar to the shadow on the arm.
