    Hi Guys,

    It's been a while since I posted on here, so I'm glad to be back. I almost forgot how much great information is available on this site.

    Anyway, I took this shot this past weekend and I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything in this shot (lighting, framing, post processing, etc...).

    As far as the specs of the shot, 1/250 at 7.1, ISO 100. Taken with a Canon 60d/70-200 F/4L lens with a speedlite 430 ex ii in manual mode (full power) camera right at 45 degrees bouncing the light off of an umbrella. It was taken about 1 hour before sunset with the sun setting over the subject's left shoulder. I used a Polaris flash meter so I think I got the exposure spot on.

    One of the things I did in post was to lower the contrast a lot. It seems that the 60D is very contrasty and I don't really like that look. Did I overdo it? Is it just right?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Danny

    With so many vertical elements in the image, it's a shame you didn't turn your camera 90°.

    Nice use of the backlighting and your OCF.

    I think her pose is a bit too square to the camera.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the feedback Kundalini. I didn't even consider doing that. I will remember next time!
