    Hmm well its a pretty good photo, besides being a tad over exposed, but maybe that's what you were looking for. But i feel that the whole model on the railroad tracks is such a cliche... I don't know there is just sooo many out there.

    little overexposed...other than that...pretty good.

    I just hope you know that if you were caught, you'd be guilty of a crime. Trespassing on railroad property is a very serious offense.

    Hey Sideburns...

    I was kinda going for the overexposed look..I guess it didn't quite work here.

    I had no idea it was a crime to be on the railroads...I guess I should thank G-d we didn't have an issue today and stay away from here on out.

    I like the last shot the best. The rest seem a little too over exposed and almost blown out.

    Aside from the over exposed bit the first and last lack contrast. Nothing that can't be slightly touched up though.

    Overexposed again, It looks like you picked some harsh light to shoot in, next time try closer to sunrise/sunset. youll get much better colors in the photos. Also #2 and #3, watch for shadows and sunspots on the face, its always good to look out for these things are try to keep the lighting consistent.

    try a different time of day...later in the afternoon (more effective lighting)

    Well, its already been said that there are blown out parts in these. In this case, if you have no other choice than to shoot at this time of day, I would narrow the aperture to at least 9, and adjust the shutter speed accordingly so that they arent so bright.

    The blowout is quite severe in #2 and #3, but I think #1 and #4 can be saved if you run a defog on them, so that they are not so hazy. Just use USM 40, 60, 1 and see what you get.

    Also, its a good idea to watch out for hair in the eyes, as in #4.

    If its such a crime to take pictures on railroad property, then why do I see so many model shoots done on railroad tracks?

    On the upside, your model is very lovely, and I hope you do more shoots with her.

    I have to echo the other posts and say the lighting is a little harsh. She is a pretty girl and I would try and reshoot with some more flattering light.

    Around here the railroad has its own police force not mention if the tracks are active this can be dangerous. You would be surprised at how fast a train can come around a corner with little or no warning. "There can be a train on any track at anytime."

    Thank you all for your FB...

    NJMAN- you mentioned to shoot in aperture 9 ..I'm an amateur so bare with me, but I'm slightly confused by that.. as long as I choose the right aperture/shutter speed so the camera indicates a correct exposure shouldn't that generally bring a correct exposure (as long as I'm metering off the right area)... or in strong light situations is it better to shoot in a small aperture to "slow" the exposure?

    I also touched this up and wanted new FB on whether this looks improved or not..

    One more comment :lol:

    If I was doing this shoot for a fashion company the goal would be to SEE the dress...I think in the first shot, you get such a clear view of the dress and if I would have shot it differently the dress would not have been in such sharp view.
