So, I have to brag here. My wife started dieting a year ago and as of last week had lost over 100lbs. I am not that great of a photographer, but she wanted to enter a weight loss contest, so she asked me to take some shots of her for a before an after submission. Attached are the two shots she submitted. I see lots of issues with the before. I still think her face looks overexposed in the after, but she liked it. Ive learned that if she likes it, I quit messing with it. These were taken at the same location, almost a year apart.

I think the first is a little underexposed and the second, like you said, a little overexposed. Either way, who cares! Congrats to your wife, she did a complete 180 and looks great. Well done to the both of ya!

Super, on all counts! She deserves commendation and admiration for her transformation. I like the way the before and after will "face one another" by changing her body direction between the two shots. Well-done all around.
