I capture this during my home trip.
Does the two different expression hamper the photo?
Does the brightness is okay?

A charming capture. Composition is good. The loving mother smiling holding the slightly fractious child. This tells a story which takes the image beyond being a mere family photo.
It would be better without the bright areas on the child's face. Better to have more even less contrasty lighting on both faces.

Ian

Very good image, could be improved by taking down the brightness and upping the contrast a little, but really these are minor adjustments, John.

The child looks unhappy as you mention and the image tells a story. It tends to come over that the child didn't wan to be photographed. The main problem is the very high contrast which has led to some burn out and dark shadows. You could lift the shadows with the dodge tool, the background is just about acceptable. Nicely composed.

I don't know about the tech stuff - but composition wise I think it'a lovely. The mum has an expression as if to say ' Oh well'! It's very good.

Its a very good shot, and with the suggested changes, which are all caused by the very bright light and the direction the light is coming from, its even better. Yes, absolutely the expressions work together, because they are real everyday life expressions, and not posed.


Ive uploaded a mod with the above suggestions included.

nice image of the mother and child, but it is very tightly cropped, maybe the surroundings were distracting but id have liked to see more of the background or a suitable one included to place them in the context of their surroundings so that the picture tells more of a story. id have liked to see the colour version too, even as a version.

the expressions are interesting enough but i can see that the lighting was difficult to handle with the childs face in a shaft of light which is also falling onto the mothers shoulders. harsh contrasty light is the enemy of the portrait photographer but usually its possible to move the subjects into shade or work with the elements and bounce light back in with reflectors or use a small blip of fill flash.

Phil
