hi there

I'm no pro but, will give you my opinion.
I'm not sure what exactly you were going for here? If the focus was meant to be on the lady then... A bit more of her might have helped in the image... not cutting of the hands and possibly standing back a bit more and less space at the top of her head.
Try using another aperture so the back round is blurred out unless you intended on showing it...
As fot the lady herself... you captured the hair and scarf flowing very nicely... the face look a bit dark around the eyes but agian, not sure what you had planned...
Hope it helps mate Grin

Hi Michal,

If your intention is to take an action shot, - looks like she is in mid air in this one, then you need to use Tv mode on your camera, and select a fairly fast shutter speed. Time the shot to take it at the top of the jump, - like what youve done here, where the subject is starting to fall. You camera has an autofucus mode called AI Servo that would also be useful as it tracks moving objects.

Shooting into the sky would also suggest that you will get a better shot using fill flash, which will illuminate the subject a little more to compensate for a slightly lower exposure your camera will select due to the brightness of the sky. You camera manual should have some information about fill flash.


I think this is a good effort for this type of shot.


Regards


Willie
