    This morning around 830am on my way home i saw some Jamaican farm workers picken apples. So i stopped and asked if it would be ok if i took some photo's. Of course they were more than happy too let me snap away.


    The 1st photo is the Original.
    I used a ISO SETTING OF 400 AND HAD MY WHITE BALANCE SET TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT.

    1/320S - F-5.3

    I then decided to play around with this image a little in my photo shop.
    This is what i came up with and happen to really like it. I would love too hear your C&C ON this Image also. I happen too like it because too me it allmost looks like a painting. I did this with the HDR. I have downloaded a free trail of photo shop so this is all very new to me also.
    Thank you so much.
    Nautifish.

    I think the idea is great, and love that you had your camera ready for an impromptu shot like this.

    But your original photo is underexposed, and the HDR is just way too sharp/overdone. Please don't take this as my attempt to be mean, but as your edit stands now, the super sharpness and saturation hurt the viewer's eyes.

    I think if you had lowered your shutter speed by a couple of stops to let in some more light it would have been a great shot. The face also appears to be a little soft, as if you missed the focus by just a hair and got the leaves behind him to the left in focus.

    IMO, the HDR does not work well with this photo. The original is GREAT, perhaps a bit soft and underexposed.

    Don't you wish you could reach into the photo and move those branches out of his face.

    I definitely like the last one you posted the most. The colors seem much better.
    Also, it looks like the image is sharper overall, though that could be because it's a bit smaller and I can't see the detail as much. You've improved a lot since your first post. Keep up the good work.
