For I am now a US Navy Sailor
A few things I see: the white looks a bit yellow (this is a crappy work monitor so someone else verify), the blacks have lost detail and there is a harsh shadow from the flash...
My son shipped out today headed for Great Lakes.
The white looks yellowish because it a cream color. The flash was harsh because This is a Navy Training base and you can only take pictures in one area, no time to set up lights and she was a grad a go so I only had about 2 hours with her before she shipped out.
Good luck to him and God Bless. Thank him for his service. What is his job going to be? My daughters going to be a Nuclear Electronics Technition. Her fiance is going to be a Nuclear Machineist Mate and has volunteered for Fast Attack Subs.
This picture is just a snap shot, not meant to be a studio portrait. It's just a proud dad showing off his daughter that joined THE NAVY,not the Army. And yes this picture does belong here because last time I checked this was a people photo forum. This is why it's not in the proffesional forum.
As for your opions on the military please keep them to the off topic forum. But 5 words you said are true "Sorry, but I don't think "
Formally Sgt. B Campbell,
10TH Special Forces Unit.

Hey, I have no problem with you posting your pic of your beautiful daughter, or bragging about her But, if you said that it was just a snapshot, I wouldn't have given a critique and you wouldn't have had to get defensive.
This shot could have gone in the just for fun forum, or in here, with the qualification that its a snapshot, because it says on the forum:
"post for discusion and feedback including general critique."
Just because I did that doesn't mean that I am anti-troops
Great to see someone serving I'm in the Royal Norwegian Airforce and I'm going down south to Meymaneh in March. Good luck to your girl. Beautiful daughter you got.
Lyncca Sorry if you took my reply to you as defensive, it wasn't meant to be. I just wanted to out line my conditions. And no where in there did you say anything against our troops.
I think that he was not reacting to your post, but rather to this utterly inappropriate and out of line post from Tranceplant:
The forum rules clearly state that politics are NOT allowed. Dumping your political bias on a proud dad's moment is a crap thing to do.
As for the pic, given the limitations on lighting, it's a wonderful snapshot and as a dad Scubabear6 has every right to be proud of her and the pic.
Thank your daughter and her fianacé for me, Scubabear6!
It's all good, I just didn't want you to think that I wasn't thankful to your daughter and everyone else protecting us
