    It's too centered. Also a tighter crop would work much better.

    Main subject more to the right side, eyes open. Wait till the canoe travelled more to the left before shoot. More depth of field would be nice too. It's a great snapshot, though.

    Depth of Field (DOF) is controlled by the size of the aperture (opening) of the lens. This size is represented in F numbers.

    If the F number is low...the lens opening is big...the DOF is small (shallow).

    If the F number is high...the lens opening is small...the DOF is large (deep).

    Got it? :roll: It usually takes a while to wrap your head around this concept and remember it.

    use the rule of thirds for image placement and get rid of the canoe. depth of field is not all that bad.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned. But she needs to get that canoe out of her torso...that must hurt...

    and open those eyes! :)
