    I found this young girl in the fields in front of Ankor Wat in Cambodia... any comments/suggestions? Is the contrast okay? Thanks!

    I think the value of background is too close to the subjects. Yes I think you need more distinction between the subject and the background.

    That is a really nice photo, I really like the softness of the girl's hand on the donkey(or horse?).

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Well, there is a blur tool in Photoshop that you might want to use (in my old version its icon is a drop), but if that really is part of Ankhor Wat in the background (which I think it is), I would not blur it out, even though your subject is the girl and the horse (very pretty girl, lovely expression, by the way!). To my mind it is blurred enough but still somewhat recognisable. And it might be a bit of a tough job blurring the background still further around all that curly hair! Ugh. No job that I would want to do...
