Maybe I should have looked for a tree with more shadow to get benefit of the light but to avoid the shadows and the harsh light. I have a small reflector but I forgot it *hits face* anyway one cannot hold the reflector in a shot like this.

Overall I like it, hope you too!

By the way, the Pram is not a great tripod and I need more patience to blend two exposures :)

There's something funky about how your shoes look on the grass, almost like you were photoshopped in. I mean, I believe you weren't, but something looks "floaty."

But nice pic either way!

I don't find the lighting detracts from this shot, but is just quite natural. A very relaxed pose in contrast to your jumping. Great capture!

Nicely done. The others have covered all the bases, so I'll just add that I like the setting you've chosen, it adds to the calm expression in your face and body language.

with the way the lights and shadows are, it almost creates an illusion like you're floating. pretty cool!

I like this - very contemplative, like you're thinking about whether it was a good idea to jump off rocks or not. :-) I don't mind the "harsh" light - most of our lives on sunny days is spent in harsh light and you've dealt with it quite nicely, I think.

I like this shot. After looking at it a bit, I noticed the vertical is off a bit. There are some great tutorials under the Learn that help with straightening photos and contrast masking (a way to help edit when the difference between the lights and darks are too big.)

Ahhhh... two exposures. That explains the strange looking shoe/grass transition.

The lighting doesn't really bother me. Casual setting, with a restful expression. I like it.

Very introspective pose. Scrolling down I noticed a tad off the top might work a little better with eye-flow. Overall nicely done!

Hehe yes I know, a shade might have been better. But I wanted to be leaning on a tree and this is a werid park, as you can see all the tree trunks are in the sun!!!

This is a great shot. I really like this one. Very calm feel to it. The only small issue for me is the 2 leaves at your left foot.

Well done! Great job on editing the harsh lighting.
