last one of my brother and his girlfriend. comments, votes and critique welcome!
This is a lovely portrait - both look relaxed and have wonderful smiles!
I think I would just crop a little off the left, to remove two people (on the far left) in the background, but that is a minor point. I'm sure your sister would love a copy of this!
On scanning quickly through the thumbnails, it's made my photographic day, to see this delightful, down to earth portrait by a junior member. A picture tells a thousand words. I'm an old and not particularly good landscaper but I've learned a lot about photographic portraiture from looking at this photo and the EXIF data.
May I recommend the following: If possible; use a lower ISO speed, a focal length of 100mm or a bit more and as big an aperture as you can. This should put every distracting thing in the background out of focus (bokeh). The other thing is: Multi Segment metering is great for landscapes but not so good for portraits, especially when they're backlit. Centre or Spot Metering would have correctly exposed the faces and you could have used +/- exposure adjustments to get it just right.
Look forwards to seeing some more of your photographs!
