Award Shortlist   

By the pond i did spy a young maiden making eyes at me .

By PCarman
i plugged in my hard drive and an action came up , what do ya wanna do mate , go to lightroom room or whatever ?

uh lightroom where ?? long story but thought i'd lost it of my tower. on further inspection ,yay !!!

so i like this pic a lot got that classic edge i feel and a whiff of breeze came along doing all that stuff , however face a tiny bit shaded but wanted to bring up a little without all my hamfisted tries. after cocking up quite a few edits iv plumped for this one before i am driven batshit.

hope you like it , i'm just pleased i got it this far .

Stop agonizing. You have a great shot of a beautiful young " maiden". The processing looks OK on my systems and if she was making eyes at you then I hope you sent her a copy of the photo and arranged another shoot at a location with more sensitive lighting.

Nice photo of the ducks, but there seems to be a pretty young lady in the way 😂 I must say she looks totally at ease and a natural in front of the camera.

Very nice image
Do you shoot RAW or jpeg?
RAW does give you more flexibility in situations like this

you do agonis though because you wanna get it right and you know other photographers and perfection and why not . iv read some interesting gumpth about doing the art for yourself and feel it's what i do within that but there are rules .
frustration only because i'm a slow processor and have a vision in my minds eye and familiarity with editor so mistakes are bound to be made . i shoot raw and peg . with this one i processed raw then tried doing the finish in peg ?? is what it is but yes,experimentation .

I'm no expert but I'd love to have a play if you have the original RAW?
Although if any area, such of the back of her legs, is over-exposed, then there's not much chance of recovering that bit
