    I took them in school. Some editing in LR and PS. They are on her facebook so I wont reup them again, and also quality is not the greatest. Any C&C?

    The bottom one seems to be a little out of focus round her eyes, and you could have maybe bounce light back onto her face from the bottom left of the photo with a reflector.
    Otherwise I like the framing of these photos, nice work :thumbup:

    Nice composition on 1 and 3, not really liking the pose / face in #2.

    The face looks dark when compared to the brightness of the outside.
    I agree with the prior comment about a reflector or something to lighten the face.

    They all seem a bit soft though. But overall, nice work!

    In her eyes you can see that something bright was underneath her face (on the ground?), which reflected light, else her face would have been all dark against this background. So you did think of reflecting light back up to her, only does it not seem to have been enough... like this, her skin is a bit yellow... but I sure like her cute expressions! :D

    She actually wanted it to be almost blown out in the background, but I think I went a little overboard on the burning of her face :p. But she likes them so I don't care.
