HI I would be interested on your thoughts of this photo. It's currently in the review process.

I would only say that the highlights such as the sky are slightly over exposed, causing the outlines of hair to also become overexposed. Composition could possibly do with being adjusted slightly ie to the left slightly, but that's quite subjective.

Other than that good shot.

Wille

thank you for your reply. I’ll take that advice on board. I see what you mean about the sky/hair. I was just slightly worried about under exposing the faces. Thanks again.

Which application are you using? There are a number of options you have to prevent this happening?

Lightroom highlights adjustment should do a pretty good job without affecting any of the midtones in the faces. Alternatively you could apply a gradient adjustment from the top of the sky downwards.

It’s a great picture. But I’ve identified one part that may get your picture in trouble:

Let‘s fist see if the moderators refuse that.

I doubt that you can correct this via software.
