    aah, i've been shooting all morning and afternoon... and that wasn't easy with my hands constantly tied... my wrists still hurt a bit, actually. I've got about 20 pics I like, i've been playing with'em a lot... but here's the best one I got, IMO. I'm very new to portraits, so all crtitic and advice appreciated...

    Yeah, that would be hard to shoot :) I think the first one looks the best however it could use more contrast

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Hi alexandra...I think the first is great but you need to adjust your levels; too dark. I pulled the image into my PS and the white point was way off. It brightens up considerably.
    At the very least you need to do image>>>adjust>>>>auto levels.
    After I did that it looked awesome. boosted the contrast a little and bingo....killer shot:D
