    Default Finally!

    I finally have a picture of DD that I can't wait to print big! It has been like pulling teeth lately! I'm kind of stuck on the crop...couldn't seem to make it work with ROT. This was definitely not posed and I was so lucky to catch this expression; I had no chance of backing up and/or creating a more interesting comp. Is this crop okay? I guess I am willing to break some rules on this one since I actually caught a genuine smile!

    I would love any other cc that you have, especially anything to do with the processing since I am definitely ordering this one! Do the flyaways bother you? TIA!

    ETA: I forget the settings every stinkin time! 1/160, 2.0, ISO 200.

    GREAT shot. The flyaways don't bother me at all.

    Beautiful! Great job, Katie!!!!!!

    How do your prints usually come back compared to your monitor? My only suggestion would be to brighten just a tiny bit (and really, just a tiny bit) because prints seem darker than the monitor.

    I really love this capture!

    Thanks for mentioning this, Gwen! I also posted on ILP because I am really unsure of my editing skills (okay, lack thereof ). A lot of posters there thought my SOOC (really overexposed or so I thought) actually looked better than this edit. I tried brightening it up with a screen layer at a low opacity and masking back the background and I think that is the version I will probably end up ordering unless I can figure out a better way of going about it tonight. But yeah, I think I have a tendency to end up with things looking too dark/muddy so that is something I really need to think about and work on!

    AMAZING shot! I would so print this huge! The flyaways don't bother me at all! My eyes went directly to her eyes and smile!
