A lovely natural and happy portrait of your wife, she looks nice and relaxed!

I feel the image is a little dark so i have uploaded a mod altering the levels and adding a bit more light, i have also bumped up the contrast a little. Also i have cropped the image as i personally the centralised image didnt work for me. Also i have done a black and white conversion for you! i feel portraits always look good in BW esp with there isn't a lot of colour in the shot!!

A nice portrait though, one to be proud of Smile

Hope the MODs are ok for you x x x

Hi Anthony, its a decent shot, - but why did you position Kez so that there a bright column of light coming out of her head! Its the one main issue for me, - its called a "merge" which you have to avoid in people shots, like a lamppost growing out of someone head for example.


Apart from that, its juts a little underexposed, all due to that ray of light, and lifting the exposure, a little sharpening and cropping, then removing the light area makes a fine natural shot.

I usually like to see a portrait shot done in portrait style, though it can work landscape if shes well off centre.


Ive loaded both types of crops as mods.



Regards



Wilie

Position the model at an angle to the camera (e.g shoulders at about 45 degrees to the camera) and have her face the camera, as this will be a more flattering position. Having her square on, can make her look "fuller" that she actually is.

A pleasant image. I would place the head more to the right whilst retaining the landscape format. I would also brighten the image a little with a touch of added contrast.

Thanks very much for the comments, i am still practising outside portraits and this helps loads. See what you mean about the light coming out of her head, easy to spot after the event, more attention to detail needed on my behalf.

Many Thanks all
