My family and I went to the beach for the week. We decided to try and take some pictures ourselves for the first time on the beach. I think it went pretty well but not quite as planned. I tried taking the pictures with Manual settings. They did not quite come out how I wanted but I think I was able to recover pretty well by making adjustments to the raw image (exposure was not quite what I wanted).
Tell me what you think or offer some advise on how I could improve before I have them printed (they have not been cropped only resized for web).
