    U have to click on the picture icon (the yellow button with mts) and then paste your picture link into it.

    And you're link is non-functional anyway.

    you need a better angle, lower and to the right of him. the background is to clutter also. not much you can do about that i know but if it was just a sky i feel it would look better

    Those ropes are really distracting also.

    What do you mean by "blowing out". The sky looks pretty tame to me...

    yes, off camera flash. 430 EX II, although it was on my camera because i dont have a cable or wireless triggers.

    and about the cluttered background, there was no option. to the other side was worse (nasty bushes and volleyball net)

    He means over exposing as in having a completely white sky with no detail at all.

    i would try underexposing the background a little bit more, and maybe zoom the head on the flash in some so it doesn't illuminate as much of the foreground

    Right... I understand that... but the sky looks fine. It looks like a normal light blue sky at dusk. Maybe I'm just missing something?
