    I took this photo today at my dh's uncle's picnic. I bumped up the saturation a tiny bit, added a slight vignette, and used the spot healer to get rid of some bits of food that were on her face. C&C is appreciated. :)

    hello lilysmom and a belated welcome to TPF :)

    First let me say that you have a beautiful model :)

    now for the critique:

    the colors look very good and not oversaturated. focus on the subject is sharp. nice contrast in the photo. post work looks very good.

    what i would have done differently:
    i would have moved the subject away further away from the fence which is serving as your background to help make the subject stand out more, but that is really just a minor thing.

    ps- tell uncle to weedeat :)

    Thanks guys. :)

    After the fact, I realized I should've moved her away from the fence a little, but by then she had pooped and I had to change her. lol

    sometimes models do that which probably explains why they change clothes so frequently at runway shows. :)

    I hope you don't mind the edit. I thought this shot was so cute, but lacking something. I think it was just depth. It felt really flat. I just adjusted curves and levels, straightened the fence out and did a slight eye pop. Then I burnt the background and did the slightest gaussian blur to her skin. If you hate it, I'll take it down. ;)

    I don't mind at all when people edit. I love seeing other people's ideas. :)

    They are beautiful eyes!
    The photo needs something more, maybe a tighter crop and some work on the eyes to make them stand out out some more. but othereise its lovely
