    I went out to the beach yesterday, with my only lens a 18-55 :(, to watch my sisters participate in race. I knew I wouldn't be able to take any pictures of them racing so I took some before and decided to try something new in Gimp but I am having mixed feelings about both. I would appreciate critique on both

    My Thoughts: on #1 - Because there was such a large amount of reflection off the water on them the curves of there faces became "soft" and I don't usually like this. And it was pretty hard for me to gauge how much light there was and so it became "a little" overexposed
    on #2 - It makes their skin look blotchy and spotty but brings out their facial structures much better than #1 but this also makes the picture unattractive

    If you want to have a go, by all means please

    Hey,

    I think there are a couple of things you might want to try. First, crop it down a bit. And maybe make the colors pop a bit more.

    I think that your first pic was MUCH better than the second. I dont think the faces look too soft at all. I know someone will come along and make it look amazing - but for what its worth, here is my 2min try.
