Yay or Nay?

Does this work or no? I was kind of trying new (for me) things at our very small ILP meet up last night.

I realize that it would have been good to have all of her shadow but it was really long so I didn't get it. Sad


ETA: It also looks slightly lighter in ps than here and on flickr. I wonder if this is more firefox issues?

I like how the light is only outlining her figure. I also like the sunflare. I am not loving the location for a shot like this. It might just be me and my personal taste too. Did you add the sunflare spots at the bottom of the frame in ps? love them!!

Nice!! I'd crop the shadow out and bring her closer in.

Colours are lovely!

I love the flare and what you have done - but it looks underexposed here. I would brighten it and add contrast.

It would have looked even nicer in a field - but I can't say yea or nay until I can see it changed. Beautiful flares girl!

I agree it would have been nicer in a field!

I actually brought the exposure down in ACR so it was easy to bring it back up. Here it is with the original exposure. And Cazz's crop suggestion which I like better.

Flare is good. I just wish the background (trees) are a bit more darker. So that the subject stands out a bit more. Great job otherwise.

Thanks everyone! I think that now I know how to get this shot when the setting is better.

I think that your 2nd edit is quite an improvement. I love the sun flare!
