the ghost part feels slightly underexposed to me personally. Maybe bump exposure in post slightly and dodge/burn a little to bring out highlights. As far as the post work additions, just say no to the vignetting... it comes off as distracting/amateurish honestly. The original image might have more weight to it if you are working in camera to begin with. good luck
Thanks for the feedback. The railing in the lower right hand corner was distracting, wanted to get rid of it, so the vignette was my solution, I'll have another crack at that some other way...cropping it out made the image way too "tall" my taste.
The image was done in camera. Done in post: the vignette, the glow from the kerosene lamp and cleaning up some details.
It is a nice attempt but I feel that you could have exposed it a few more seconds to give it a more of a transparent look also I dont think Gost can carry objects from th e real world. Also to add more to the gostly body you could have use some clown white paste to make the body a lil more dead looking. Any way just my 2 cents.
