Award Shortlist   


By ade_mcfade      
This is almost a natural light shot - all the light to the left of the shot is from the warm, setting sun - with a splash of strobe to the right - the flash having a CTO gel on to balance with the sun's warm glow.

Chose this location as I knew it'd have lots of flowers and it has long avenues of trees as dramatic backdrops. Got a bit of both in this one, though the background was pretty blurred as I was using the 70-200 from a long way off and quite wide - probably F4 or wider even.

A more traditional shot than yesterdays I guess

Much more flattering Ade. I'm sure she'll prefer this one. Maybe a touch more fill-in on the legs?
She has a gently chiding bored look, which is strangely attrative, nicely lit, nothing fancy but very classy.
