One for CC

I took this one of my DS1 tonight and thought about adding it to the post-processing practice thread, but figured I'd just play with it and see what you all think. If you want to play, I can post the SOOC.

ISO 200, 50mm, f/3.2, 1/400

Updated - Bumped up exposure a bit. Is this better?

I'd love to do a play Smile

I love these types of shots! I love his "blow" face Smile

I feel like the comp isn't interesting enough. He's very centered in the frame. I'd like to see him more on the right side of the frame and a little space on the left. His skin looks a little underexposed to me, but take that with a grain of salt, since my images have been too bright lately Wink

I JUST took one of Ryken like this! Actually, multiple because he had such a hard time blowing the darn things Wink You have a nice background, so all of the little fuzzy can be seen. I'd play too if you post the sooc.

Yeah, he's too darn fast for me. This was taken at my parents' house, and my dad kept laughing at me because I would ALWAYS snap my picture just a second too late, because DS would immediately move on to the next thing. So yeah, ideally, I would've been back a little further so that I could play more with different crops, but this is the in-camera crop.

I don't think I've EVER been able to actually get my kids to stay in a place where I want them for a picture (except when they were defenseless babies that couldn't move anywhere, bwahahaha).

Anyway, I'll try to figure out how to post it as a higher-resolution SOOC for you to play (this one is just copied from my facebook page). Smile

It looks a little soft and maybe underexposed to me but you captured the moment well.

I added a new one up top with the exposure bumped up a bit. I think it looks better now. Thoughts?

I just wanted to say, I adore this pic. I love the framing of the pic, the little seeds blowing, and those puffed up rosy cheeks. What a great story they tell, IMHO. I def like your edited pic better. Very cute!
