apple orchards ROCK *updated pst 8*

My family and I went to the apple orchard on Saturday for about 45 minutes. I got some of my favorite pictures ever of my kids there! Im so happy! I usually get awesome ones of other peoples' kids becuase they arent used to me and its a different environment and yadda yadda... Biggrin My kids had so much fun that I got tons of smiles in a short little amount of time! Also, the red apples and bright green leaves made for a pretty background.

This is my favorite of the bunch. Let me know what you think, honestly... I have tons more if you wanna see them!.

Camera: Nikon D300
Exposure: 0.004 sec (1/250)

oh, that sounds like fun! love the picture, but I feel like her skin tone is off. (take that with a grain of salt, the light that comes into this room at this time of day totally alters what I see). can't wait to see more!

(but I'd clone out that thing Loida's pointing out Wink )

Guessing that's a fence post? I didnt' notice it until she asked, but now that she did say something, maybe you can crop it out! I LOVE this photo though! Great color, great comp!

This is a great shot. Composition, focus, exposure are all there. I am on uncalibrated monitor but I think skin tone looks good here. I love her hat. She is too cute and looks so grown-up here.

I love how the apple trees frame the shot and the little apples hanging in the background. I would clone out the little spot of yellow on her left (pic right) and it looks just a smidge cool to me.

I am procrastinating so I pulled it into ps and added a warming filter layer at low opacity. It looked nice that way but it blows her pink jacket in the red channel so it has to be masked. I know that you know all this stuff. Just added it so that other people could benefit.
