Its quite good, - like the pose, smiles and eye contact.

It can do with a little less exposure as theres not a lot of mod tone detail in the shot.

Thats easily rectified in post processing, using levels (the middle slider) or curves.

Ive loaded a mod to show what I mean, - and Ive also cropped and sharpened.




Regards

Thanks Willie!

I always find it amazing how such subtle little differences in the mods you post can make such a difference, so helpful to be able to compare the original too.

Really appreciate you taking the time to take a look and give your thoughts on these pics.

Kind regards

A nice image but, for me, screams for a landscape format - thus a strong top and bottom crop. There is no need to show all the father's head - just come in tight on the two faces and you have a cracking shot.

Paul, just tried that and I wouldn't have thought of it but you're right it comes out great!

Thank you!

You will often - but not always - find that getting in close and really filling the frame with what matters gives far better images. An old boy at the camera club told me that in the late 1960's - he was an FRPS and no fool. Long dead now but a superb mono printer and was always trying to be different.

Here, his forehead and the girls dress add nothing - it is the faces and eyes that matter. Have added a mod.

However, as you well know, everyone to there own and subjects and composition can be very personal likes and dislikes.
