a few more practice shots *updated with settings finally

I got a chance to take a few more pics the next day after my other outdoor set last week. I shoot in manual btw. And adjust in PSP after I upload.

Any CC would be welcome!

The sun was in and out as you can probably tell on some of these.

I can add in the exposure settings later tonight because I'm not sure if the stats at Flickr are correct since I uploaded edited small versions of the originals.

1. I see this is still too bright but does it "work"? (this one I also adjusted in Flickr)
Edit: original settings SS 1/197, F/5, ISO 400

2. face is too soft I think?
Edit: original settings SS 1/395, F/5, ISO 400

3. sun came out here
Edit: original settings SS 1/790, F/4, ISO 400

4.

5.
Edit: original settings SS 1/1250, F/4.5, ISO 400

I am not great, so you can just ignore my cc okay? Just thought I would add some if you wanted it!

1) the sun makes it too bright for me. Plus it looks a little cool.
2) I think it is a bit too soft. The right side of the jacket seems to be the focus here. cool here too.
3) probably my fav. Not too bright here.
4) 2nd fav. Looks a little cool to me though.
5) cute

Thanks Sadie. It's funny, the 1st shot was when the sun was behind clouds so I guess it just was overexposed. After playing with it briefly I kind of liked the slightly vintage feel it has...but I'll play with it more to try to fix the brightness. Thanks again for replying.

p.s. in #4 I edited out a ton of reflections off her glasses.
