    A couple of shots which i like out of approximatley 14,000 i took earlier :)

    I liked the light coming through the window, just not sure if its too much of a contrast, as it was quite dark inside.

    Any critique will be thoroughly appreciated.


    1. I love this one, the reflectionand the contemplation on Abbies face.

    she is cute! and her eyes really stand out in the second picture ^_^

    only suggestion is more lighting on the left side of her face maybe

    Yea, i agree.
    Only have pop up flash at the moment, and dont particuarly like it (mainly because i cant use it correctly) so not sure how i could achieve that as it was quite dark inside.

    Had largest appeture i could, and iso was at 800 (1600 made bright side too bright).
    I`m guessing flash work is only real option here?

    ooh yeah ISO 800 is def. much for a picture with that much light. It appears that you used only natural light though, am i right?

    anyway, i don't think flash is necessary in those conditions. I guess the only thing you could do is increase exposure, or maybe flash is your only option. I bet a more experienced person can help you, i don't want to give you misinformation =]

    I actually really like the 2nd one! She's so cute! Normally I would suggest getting down to the same level as her but that above one looks good! Maybe crop a bit off the bottom but now I'm just being picky with personal choices ;)

    Sorry toofpaste, I like the original better it is "softer".

    She sure is a sweetie. No granddaughter for us, just boys. :<(

    I went into the RGB colors in ps, ctrl+green layer, clicked on RGB again, went to layers made a new layer with just the green levels selected added screen.....then did the same process again but with the inverse of what I selected the first time. And put that layer as overlay.

    It makes sense in my mind, dont know if i explained myself though? :lol:


    you got a point. just playin around to see if i could bring out the eyes more, and the warm colors.
