I took my kids out for my annual Mother's Day pictures last night (a day late, it was too cold on Sunday). The sun was setting and I'm loving the warm look on the photos. But I'm struggling with the WB to some degree - I can't use the whites of the eyes, as that's making the photo way too cool. They were taken at sunset, and I want the colors of the photos to show that.
So this is my first photo from the set. Only edit has been in ACR. I adore this photo, because normally Andrew wants nothing to do with Natalie. These two kids are alike in personality, and so I love having this photo. But I'm annoyed at the limb chop. (I chopped feet in several other photos - was hard to focus on everything when Jack wanted nothing to do with a group picture).
I will be probably start a new thread with others from the set when I'm done editing them all. It's time to get the kids ready for bed now. But I wanted to post this one to get a feeling on the color and on the stupid limb chop. It's not like I'm blowing this particular one to an 8x10 or anything, but I'm wondering if I should crop it differently. ??
