A photo I shot of a friend of mine back in the fall of 2010.

I think it's a little underexposed but I like the colors and the overall feel of the picture. Any input?

Yeah it is pretty underexposed....have your looked at it in black and white and bring the exposure up just a bit and maybe a bit of fog...give it kind of a soft dreamy look.

You know, I like the overall idea assuming the late afternoon sun, girl in thought etc etc.
I think what is missing (for me) is the upper left where there is no light at all. Even a small amount of fill would have at least had some detail and evened it out.
I know any crop but a vertical 1/3 would lose the hair down low, but anyway, I like this.

^Appreciate the feedback. I really do wish I had exposed it more.

I haven't tried that. I don't like to edit pictures much haha
