    Camera settings:

    F: 2.2
    1/800
    50.00 mm fixed lens

    Question: This pic is very washed-out, how do I made it natural ? I dress she is wearing is red in color and not as in the pic.

    thanks for looking.

    Was this originally shot in-camera in JPEG or RAW (if so what camera)?
    What image editing software do you have available to you?

    Overexposed. You could have increased the f-stop number or increased the shudder speed. Also moved in closer to get more girl and less background. I didn't take time to fix color since I'm on the laptop this late at night.
    Attached is a quick example. _MG_4572.CR2-1.jpg

    Defiantly over exposed and too much imbalance with background.

    Chroma needs to come down an bit and personally it looks like there may be a bit much on the magenta.
    Boke is good but I would check if the program can switch out some of the other color variations.
    Pose is nice and the color though saturated by the over exposure can be brought into a good form.

    It looks over exposed to me, and the color looks oversaturated. Perhaps you can edit the photo and make it look better

    actually this photo is click by the opposite of sunlight. That's why the image color goes to wash out. I don't think its camera problem.

    It’s a perfectly acceptable photo of this person.
    A bit of cropping into a square format might tidy up the surroundings a bit.
    it really depends on what your purpose is.
    A quick shot of a lovely lady and you’ve got it.
    You won’t win any prizes but I think the lady will be pleased.

    Try bracketing another time, it’s old school but it does still have a place in the digital world.
    Bracketing, 1 stop or more under exposed 1 shot at recommended exposure and 1 stop over exposed. Some cameras will do this for you I am a fossil and still do it manually

    She appears to be looking into the sun and squinting a bit as a result. Possibly why it was over exposed.
