Oh Sadie! I just LOVE these (you knew I would, right?!)!
The centered crops don't bother me, but perhaps a slightly tighter crop would help.
I like Steph's idea of shooting down more.
Anyway you put it though, these are such great spring shots! I love how relaxed and natural Ruthie is in each image. I can almost feel the warm spring breeze when I look at these.
TFS, Sadie! I can't wait to see more!
Sadie, these are so cute. My fav is def #1. I love her expression here. So peaceful. It is NOT underexposed...don't touch that dial! The other two are a bit too bright. I totally agree that the feet are too bright on all of them.

Thanks so much ladies! I will tone down the feet and the washed out looks on #3. Amber- I too think #1 might be my fave- it's the peaceful look that gets me!
The spot on #1 & 2 I think is a horse! LOL! I need to clone it out. As for the horizon- our yard was sloping there to the right, so I need to fix that. I shot at so many different angels. On these, I was on the ground shooting. There were some I did different. Maybe I will share those a bit later.
Nice job on the new comps! On new #1, the foot looks a little blotchy. Could you try using a paintbrush to tone it down a bit instead of burning? If that's what you did I like the exposure on the old #2 and #3 better than the new exposure. On my laptop, I bet the edit would look better, but on the calibrated screen, the old exposure was spot on. I'd just go back and tone it down on the feet instead of on the whole image.
Nice job on the cloning! I'd like to see the bright green patch gone as well as the horse. It looks great in #2!
Sadie, I am late to this but I am SO glad to see you got your camera out! Great shots just wanted to add that I really like # 3. It looks more lifestyle to me like she is just being a kid laughing to herself and you caught it. Great job
