Dorothy Hi , and welcome to EPZ Smile

From your EXIF data (that shows what settings your camera had during exposure ), it shows that you did not used the flash.If you did then the upper left part of the tree trunk would be less white and less distracting and the leaves of the tree on the right hand side would be more saturated and colorful. Also the overall contrast of the scene would be much easy for your camera to cope. So my advice would be to use your flash in sunlight and high contrast scenes like this.

I like the angle that the cat has in the frame , but it would be better if you "let" some space towards the direction the cat is facing so that the picture would be more balanced and pleasing to the eye Smile

Keep shooting ... Smile

Take care

Charles

Hi Dorothy,


Cant tell your camera model from the details loaded no I dont know its capabilities. The flash advice from Charles could work, but it would be best if the camera had thee the flash in "fill" mode rather than a full flash mode.

For a shot taken up into the sky iys not bad, but the camera had to make a compromise between the bright and the dark, so the darks are a little lighter than they should be, making the cat a little washed out.


Ive loaded a mod with this corrected, and cropped a little.

Lets know your Photoshop or other software skills so we can tailor our help to your needs.


regards



Willie

The basis of a nice image, but you need a little less exposure, a tighter crop and a contrast boost. There also needs to be a bit of sharpening. A compact reduces your control and the end product here is not bad, but you could lift things quite a bit in software.
