Hi All,

So other than family snapshots I don't usually photograph people, however a day in the park recently afforded me the oppertunity to try and get some good shots of my mates on a sunny day and try my hand at shooting some candids as well. Here is the result.

C&C is of course always welcome, I'd like to hear your opinion!

Rather nice; I might try and dial down the exposure and contrast just a hair, but I like the quiet simplicity.

Thanks tirediron, I still find it difficult to tell whither I've pushed it too far in post or not.

I like lots about this. Only one oddity - the woman's attention is on whatever is in her hands but the composition and brightness lead my eye to the very bright bag at far left. I am very much not an expert but I might try to calm it down, perhaps a bit of local burning, perhaps a slight vignette to force the attention back to the middle, perhaps even cloning those bags out.

Thanks juggler, I'll try a bit of a burn on the bags if I get the time to do another edit along with tiredirons suggestion of pulling the contrast back a touch.

Thanks manaheim, I originally thought she was looking at a phone or iPod but to me she kinda looks like she's knitting!
