Hi everyone, I took a couple pictures of some of the kids I teach (1st grade) on the playground the other day. It was really sunny, so there are some bad highlights (on one in particular). I played around with them in PS Elements, but I just got it about a week ago, so I don't know exactly what I'm doing in there yet I have a Canon T1i (w/ kit lens) and I listed the pertinent info at the top of each picture. I'm hoping you can comment/critique/help on my composition, exposure, and PP work (or anything else you see that might need work). Any tips on how to get rid of that really bright spot in the top left corner on the third picture? I fiddled around with a couple things in PSE, but it just looked ridiculous. I did manage to clone out a bolt and a rock wall "rock" in the lower left corner. I know it's not perfect, but does it look like a good start? Also, I read later that a higher ISO might have helped with the bright sun...guess I'll try that next time :er: OK, on to the pictures: 1. 1/250; f/5.6; ISO 100; I was trying to autofocus on this one...might've missed the mark. 2. 1/125; f/5.0; ISO 100 3. 1/160; f/4/5; ISO 100 Thanks for looking! ~Meredith PS. I tried looking this up, but didn't find exactly the info I needed/wanted. These are not my children, so is it okay to post them? I know people post pictures of kids all the time, but usually they're clients or family members. If this post is inappropriate or just not a good idea, please let me know and I will delete it!
