Howdy from the Critique Club

Over all you have a really nice shot, very nice color and the a isolated subject from blurred back ground and sharpness is good.

Natural light is good, but a few things you might consider is time of day when you shoot, is either early or late part of the day. If those times of day is not good for you. You might try shielding your subject from the bright sun. It shows on the top of her head and in the hair area and parts of the back ground.

I looked at your histogram and there were no black pixels to work with so I did some simple level adjustments, to take out some one the flatness off the shot. This brought out the colors allot more and in turn took out some over powering brightness.

I think this photo is worth re-shoot and trying a few different things. This person looks like she is loved really good by someone and it is worth the effort to improve it. Maybe more light on the face to bring out those great eyes.

If you have any questions please feel free to PM me.

Have a Great Day, Mark Thomas Kelsay.

A pretty color portrait, but by far anythign from a candid in my book. Good dof. The lighting could be better, but she is obviously looking straight into and at the camera and the photographer. Cute little girl though, just not a good entry for this challenge.


Thanks for the feedback. Just beginning to take a long time interest (photography) seriously and value all the input I can get. Your right about it not really being a candid. I was so excited about a new camera and posting a pic for the contest the I missed one most important details.

Nice eye contact but the eyes are too dark.
