    F/5.6 at 1/125 at ISO 100, in the SUN??? NO wonder your arm and ankle areas all look over-exposed....

    And that weird look....aw, c'mon, surely you've got a decent fake smile, or even a real one???

    I say RE-SHOOT!!

    wasn't in sun....in shade, only feet were in sun. I tried f/4....not enough, tried f/2.8....not enough....had shutter speed at 125, due to moving around. Ok, a reshoot :)

    It seems like it would have been more natural, or at least more compositionallty friendly, to have sat upon the rock that your feet are on and turned yourself toward the camera, perhaps with your feet more to the side on the lower rock.... that way, your pose would look better, the shadows wouldn't hinder your image, and the trees would have balanced the frame..... It also looks like f8 would have hit the mark on exposure.
