  1. #1

    Default Morning Stroll

    Here is a scene I took few days back
    I hope to receive comment especially about the composition, and colors (is it over-edited ?).
    Any other critique and comment will be greatly appreciated.



    Equipment is 400d with 17-40
    Setting is f/11, 1/400, ISO-100

    May a horizontal pose with less upper sky be better?

    yeah, kinda agree with that. but the composition for this photo is okay too.
    just that, i feel that the colour is over saturated. the picture is overall over edited.
    just my two cents worth.

    I think the colours are abit overdone, the glow is a slightly false yellow (there is a slight lack of red in the glow).

    I am actually fine with the portrait orientation, but I would love to see the person a bit nearer to the center (not dead center but nearer) to the frame. Right now, the person is a little too much into the shadow area to stand out.

    Yup, it's a nice photo, but the small main subject (silhouette) doesn't have that much impact, especially since the title is about her stroll.
    Our pictures are our footprints. Itís the best way to tell people we were here - JoeMcnally | Flickr

    how about using a flash for fill in for your subject?

    That largely depends on how far the subject is. Honestly, most, and I daresay all, of our modern speedlites don't stand much of a chance in filling in against direct sunlight, especially if you are exposing for the sun.
