We could do with blue sky in the UK. at the moment lol. a nice photo of a pretty lady, nice dress and flowers to compliment her, a bit puzzled by the broad leather belt, is that considered a fashion accessory at the height of Fashion! like the photo Clare, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Good to see another image from Oz with that wonderful blue sky.
Your image today lives up to it's title with look of joy on Treena's face
and hair blowing in fresh air. When you get software, I'd clone out the bit of hair
above her shoulder. the loose hair on top of head is absolutely fine.
What Dave(ugly) is suggesting is always allow a bit of space for subject to move in to.
Your subject is looking in to the frame which is good.
The flowers look lovely against the white dress which Treena is holding beautifully
and the breeze is ding the rest.
The one thing I'd like to have seen is Treena on her tip toes as her feet are buried in the sand.
That would also add to the feeling of Joie de Vivre.
Hope this is helpful. Wishing I was on that beach with you!

Again, this one's all about Treena, Clare, but a nice image nonetheless.
Treena needs more room around her, particularly to the right, so that we can imagine that fresh air coming from that direction, and also because your subject should have space in the area into which she is facing.
I like Kate's idea of Treena being on tip toes, that would certainly add a sense of joy. But I also felt that it would look good if she had her mouth open, as if she was sucking in the fresh air, but this would also add to the sense of joy because we often open our mouths when in ecstacy like this, thoroughly enjoying the moment.
Whether smiling like this, or with her mouth open, she is likely to have almost closed eyes. The eyes are an important element in portraiture, as they help engage the viewer with the subject. On the other hand, it would be perfectly natural for us to close our eyes with pleasure in a situation such as this. On the subject of her eyes, she has a bright spot over one of them, which I think is just where the light has highlighted that area. There is another less prominent highlight on her chin.
Thankyou for your feedback on your last picture in the CG. As to your learning to take pictures of your bouquets, I have to again say that this picture is more about your model than about those flowers. If you cropped away the bottom half, the bouquet suddenly becomes more of a major element, and it is then also more noticeable that the colour of the flowers echoes the colour of the sky. I think this retains the atmosphere you have created, but gives the flowers more prominence. I would crop to just below the hand on the skirt.
Pamela.

What mode do you have the camera set to for these shots Clare?

Good helpful comments already. Its still underexposed for me, which is why I ask about mode.

Reminiscent of Kate Winslow on the front of the Titanic!

Lovely capture Clare. Wow you are up to your neck in remembering all this stuff on the critique.
You wouldn't have wanted to be on the beach Wednesday or Thursday of this week especially in an
off the shoulder dress…….Grin
