The original picture was underexposed at the rocky regions in the picture, and also the kids' face. Is there anything I can do to prevent similar mistakes? I can't recall the actual settings, but I definitely remember the shutter speed was a fast one - something like 1/250 or higher.
It was very sunny, but still, I had problems with underexposure (except parts of of stream that caught the sunlight). How can I achieve a good exposure under such conditions?
Erm ... I should post the original photo. I had it scanned and did an auto level in PS. (A little too shy to post the original though!)Originally posted by ziploc
Your pic doesn't look underexposed to me. What camera and what mode were you using at that time (program/aperture priority/shutter priority/manual)?
Well, didn't have the time to think about overcompensation. I believe centre metering mode was used at that time (with the focus on the two kids) - could that be the reason for the underexposure of darker parts? In such a case, how can I avoid it, apart from bracketing? What else can I try?Originally posted by sbs99
Very bright and sunny...maybe you overcompensated for the amount of light? Or ur slr took the exposure reading from the water instead of the kids....which may underexpose the water.
I didn't change the size of the picture except for cropping. I thought it was quite distracting to see the kids in the top right hand corner ... ;p Gee ... it looks really compressed vertically?Originally posted by ziploc
The pic does look vertically compressed... perhaps due to improper resizing?

The only thing that looks weird to me is the fact that the picture looks "short", or in Ziploc's term, vertically compressed....
Ok, I'll work on it again. Thanks for the suggestions!Originally posted by sbs99
Maybe do a better crop? The kids at the right hand corner are cut off...maybe include them? Since excluding them maybe put ur subject in a awkward position.
