    So I've just started taking photography seriously about two months ago. I've taken over 4 thousand pictures on my 40D since I bought it then. I'm constantly reading forums and tutorials and anything I can to better understand composition, exposure and so on. Anyway, I'd like to start getting come C/C on my shots to help me improve. Be harsh if you must!

    Thanks.


    Took this one two days ago after the sun had dipped below the hills. 50mm 1.4, ISO 100, f/1.8, 1/250. Bumped the exposure up a full stop in PP and upped the clarity as well - both in Photoshop. Unfortunately was under exposed originally. Thank goodness for RAW.

    it's a very pleasant shot. nice depth of field. i like the way the leaves in the back ground kind of frame the girl. Although i am curious what it is she's looking at.

    I would be tempted to crop a little off the top, add a little warmth to the photo and maybe a micro-tad boost to the saturation, but that's just me

    Thanks. I made a few changes based on your input, which I agreed with.
