Beautiful portrait, I like the off set composition, good dof too.
That's the wonder of fixed focal length lenses... Looking back at the EXIF data, I took this a third of a stop wider than most zooms go, even the "wide aperture" ones - f/2.5...
Lovely portrait and very natural
nice and good lens
Great picture where the background really adds to the image.
The background Willow is really nice, but it gives her skin a yellow/green hue/ She also can do with more light on her face, - looks quite dark.
Ive loaded a mod with colour balance for skin, and brightened her face.
heres what I used for colour balance as a start:
Then I placed a colour sampler on her skin with the least amount of make up, and using colour balance, aimed for a relationship where yellow is slight higher than magenta, and cyan is between half to 1/5th the value of cyan. I didnt get quite there, but close. If you google colour balance for skin you should get a Lynda.com video tutorial.
Thanks to Willie nad Robert for two very different interpretations of the shot.
I like both, and was vaguely aware of the issues Willie notes (I use that tree a lot!) I must try harder in future...
I suspect I will see what I can do with a tweak using colour balance for skin in Elements, plus a little dodging next time...
