This is the first time I’ve seen this post. Sorry no one has replied yet.
As far as composition goes, I think that I would have tried to include her neckline so that the two lines that were created don’t come to a abrupt end at the bottom of the frame. Do you know the rule of thirds? I would have put her eyes on the lower right third “crosshair” lines. Great expression though. Also, you might try finding a really neat background, but that’s not distracting vs just green trees. Well, there’s a few thoughts. Other than that if you have Lightroom, you might want to process that photo a little heavier. Have fun!July 1, 2015 at 10:27 pm #12046thefarmhandParticipant
Actually, looking at it again, maybe the eyes go in the upper right crosshairs to fill the frame.July 13, 2015 at 8:28 am #12120James StaddonKeymaster
What an awesome expression! It has a trusting, content feeling about it.
I think shooting from a slightly higher vantage point would have included more face and less neck. I like, though, that it’s a profile shot, and not looking directly down into the face. What aperture were you shooting with? I think more blur in the background would have been nice.
The image is too small to know if it’s truly sharp, but it appears to be. Technically speaking, the image appears to be slightly underexposed and the white balance slightly cool.July 20, 2015 at 2:47 pm #12235
@thefarmhand….Thanks for the advice. I don’t know the rule of the thirds, but I’m gonna look it up. It’s actually green grass but yeah, I see what you mean.July 20, 2015 at 2:51 pm #12236
