    Default Playtime Photo for Photomarathon

    Took this during the Canon Photo Marathon Singapore. I didnt subit this becos her father's leg and another boy's shadow was in the photo which I had PS away. Please give C&C.




    BTW, this was suppose to be for Theme #3 Playtime.

    Thanks for highlighting that. I noticed it too on the girl's face. I dont dare to use fill in flash as it was a candid shot of the girl playing. Maybe I will attempt to PP the photo again. (My PS skill not that good lah)

    Dark-skinned subjects need to be overexposed by 1/3 of a stop while light skinned (especially if blonde as well) needs to be underexposed a bit.

    I do find that the slight underexposure fits the sunset theme well...the facial details is still well defined and discernable, it feels good as it is....it my personal taste lah.

    Looking at the shot again, I think your photo is fine, it's just that the sun is still quite high up and behind the subject (looking at the pole's shadows). If you had the luxury of having some form of reflector to bounce the light back, that would've been great.... Or fill flash.

    Sometimes I feel that Flickr uploading makes my photos darker. The original on my Mac look brighter but still under exposed. Yup, its too underexposed so tonight I will try to use Shutt3rbug's technic to brighten up a bit.

    Thanks yehosaphat.

    The shadow/highlight function will do.

    erm... i think you might have gotten it in reverse.

    images which have predominantly dark subjects should have a negative exposure compensation dialed in (i.e. "underexposed"), and vice-versa. this is because if a predominantly dark subject fills a frame, a camera would tend to lean towards "overexposure".
