My kids and I went to feed the ducks in a nearby town. I finally got lots of pics of them together that I love! yay! I played around with backlighting and some sun flares. Backlighting is way harder to edit that I had thought!! How do you think I did? any suggestions to make it better?
Camera: Nikon D300
Exposure: 0.005 sec (1/200)
Focal Length: 50 mm
ISO Speed: 500
Very cute! The backlighting looks great. She still looks underexposed to me. You could bring up the exposure on her skin a bit. A reflector might have helped in this situation. She also looks a little blue/cyan assuming that her long sleeve shirt is white.

I have no advice on this, but I want to say, she is a DOLL!

What a cute shot, and great job!! I honestly don't see anything I'd change with the lighting or anything, it looks spot on to me. The only thing I think I'd change is maybe trying to straighten the horizon a bit. I'm sure that'd be tricky with her hand so close to being cropped, though.
I am inspired now, though! I really want to try backlighting soon.
Very cute! The backlighting looks great, and it really makes her cute pigtails stand out. I would just warm her up a bit and bring up the exposure, and you'd be golden!
It may be just me (I'm supposedly calibrated, but I don't trust it 100%) but there seems to be a rather yellow cast on the whole image..?) Bringing down the cyan which would increase red might fix that also.
You've already got the great cc you needed, but I wanted to comment anyways.
OMG, Maddie has grown up and herhair is SO long now! Love it...
