I like it but I'd photoshop out the bright orbs right behind her head and lose a good portion of the dead space behind her. Like this, but that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before lol
No, I see what you are saying. while i have you here, your thoughts on this one?IMG_4820 by James Cason, on Flickr
thank you for your help
Love the background and the lighting but the pose looks forced, hands are stiff. And is she tilted back ? But this is not my area of expertise, she isn't running or hitting or throwing something lol
I find her top to be FAR too bold. It dominates the image... IMHO.
I think the vertical crop of your original image is the strongest. The square somehow did not look balanced, with too much background and her head and body position not conducive to what I consider to be an ideal portrait: the vertical crop get away with the excess background and made her more of the focal point of The picture.
You are fortunate to have such a pretty young model, but as noted above the pose looks off and the top isn't the best choice for her, color or style. There's something odd about the sunflowers in the background, did you by chance blur them post? Lastly when processing skin don't forget to match the hands or other exposed skin.
I too noticed the blur of the background looking odd. I think that I used the 85 on that shot but no, I didn't add any blur. Yes, this girl loves to take pictures and will shoot any time i ask.
this one look ok?

Thanks for the help.
Much better except for the dark blob near her left hand. After I saw it I can't stop looking at it. Love everything else about it!
Yeah, looks like my son wiped a booger on the lens lol
you know, I was too mad that I cropped her fingers off to notice it, but now that you said it I can't unsee it.
I'm not sure I could crop it out...
I am planning to go to Mobile to do some seascape photography and let the kids swim. Can you recommend any locations?
We drove down to Biloxi and got so lucky, there was a campground a stone's throw from the beach. 20 bucks a night and I think round trip, is less that $100 bucks in gas.
Not bad.. kids get to play AND me too. lol
