Still at Bayfront Park in Hamilton, Ontario

The editing was done to start off with Camera-in-the-RAW, used the NEST to set the COLOUR BALANCE, and then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where I resized to 401 x 600 px, and then applied the UNSHARP MASK and saved as JPEG for upload.

Again the whites in your image appear to be blowing out and, as a result, you will lose detail in these areas. Try to use -2/3rds to -1 stop of exposure compensation to stop this from happening. (There are plenty of tutorial on the site)

Your exposure meter will be fooled by such a bright subject and the photo will come out over exposed. By using some negative exposure compensation this will darken the photo and stop the highlights from over exposing and losing detail.
