I shot these photos at a local park last weekend. I took them to get more practice using manual settings while chasing my son around. This park has lots of very tall trees with clearings that make for dappled sunlight--thus, several of my pics were blown and some were underexposed.... I really like this shot the composition of this shot, the only really decent one from that day. I feel it captures Tyler's personality very well.
I played with both images using Gimp. On the second version, I added a slight curve to lighten it up. Still, his skin has some very sallowy patches that I'm not happy with. I'm not too experienced using curves, so whatever I do is trial and error.
Would appreciate any and all CC on this shot!
I'll have to post my settings when I get home.
