Hi Liam. This is a photo with potential. The pose is good, including the head in hands, eyes looking upwards in "despair"! Wink

You are presumably trying to achieve a high-key effect here but I'm not sure such an effect really conveys the title. In the mod I've uploaded for you, I've done a bit of cropping and, using levels, have evened out the lighting a bit. See what you think: hope this helps.

thanks for the mod like the crop... im a beginner with lightroom and by levels do you mean the highlights lights darks and shadows

There are a couple of articles, here , on levels which you may like to have a look at.

You will be able to find a 'levels' control in Lightroom.
