Paul_Yeo : yup .. correct! it's SMU campus. how you know?
night86mare : nothing happened .. it's just i don't have money to spend for buying a monitor calibration device :embrass:
yesterday when i edit the picture, they're looked a bit under exposed in my monitor, that's why i try to brighten up .. but in the end it only makes the pics even worse
the main idea why i cropped that way it's because of the background .. the orginal photo was not cropped that way .. it's a half body shoot .. but i found out that the background is too distracting, so i cropped it that way to eliminate the unnecessary background. anyway thanks for the comment Danntbt
