    I'm new on here and it's my first time posting. Got my first DSLR 6 months ago and have really enjoyed using it. Love taking pics (mostly of my kids) but would like to know how I can improve my skills. I'm hoping to frame this pic, but would like to know how I can make it better before I do so.

    Thank you!

    Good capture, but it looks a little overexposed to me.
    Maybe bring the brightness down, and contrast up a little?
    Not a whole lot.

    You have to be happy about catching that pose though, huh?

    Except for being a tad over exposed, this is a beautiful shot! Great capture, focus, composition. It is so very nice to finally see someone shoot a child and leave the color at normal\natural tones....sorry, just one of my pet peeves. Very, Very nice image! :thumbup:

    I went ahead and did what everyone said and turned down the exposure and turned up the contrast a bit. You can do it yourself if your trying to print it and frame it. Not hard. It should look somewhere around this in my opinion. Let me know what you think.
