Doing picture day portraits for a karate school. Trying to debate if I should add the vignette or not. Opinions please:

No Vignette:

My choice is with the Vignette. It helps draw more attention to the subject who is also wearing white. Now on how strong, well, that's a debate that could go on for days. :lol:

Me, too. I'd lighten it about 50%.

I'm not usually a fan of a vignette, but in this case I agree, it looks best.

I like Vignettes so naturally that is my choice. I'd lighten it a little in this situation but looks way better with it to my eye.

I like it with the vignetting - perhaps a touch less.

IMHO, generally vignette should not be so strong that a non-photographer would look at it and notice you applied it. This crosses that line.

Us photo geeks, will pick it up easily at almost any level and some - not all - will find that distracting. But for the less hyper critical eye, it can help bring focus to the subject.

I would keep it but back it off a bit. Especially given the shadows on the right side. I would also tighten up the shot!

As most id keep it... Im a fan of vignette though. I dont mind how much you have used, but it probably could be dialled back a touch though.
