    Took this picture of my friend as we were walking across campus. Any C&C is welcome, but I'm particularly looking for information about the post processing. I tried my best to make the colors nice and vibrant. This is the first picture that I've really played around with in Lightroom.

    Hello and welcome to the forum

    It looks like you did a good job with the PP, remember, less is more most times.
    Your image caught in the reflection is cool, next time try to move the other individual caught in the other reflection or make it apparent he is to be there.
    Maybe catch more of her ear next time as well.

    The post processing is nice.

    As an image, well, take more time for a photograph and less time snapping the image.

    This is a tight crop, but even on the original her ear is cut off a bit. I'm definitely trying to work on composition, and maybe next time I'll get a great reflection of myself. I didn't notice me until I was doing PP!

    This is definitely something that I'm trying to work on. This happened to be a really luck snap on settings that luckily worked out nicely.


    Thanks again for all the C&C!

    Because you appear to be male in the reflection. That's pretty easy. ;)

    I like this picture a lot. I like how the glasses pop and how the mirror finish on the lenses is so sharp.
