Finally got a day off, so went to the beach with the wife and step daughter. Still real new at this so any feed back is greatly appreciated.

The exposure is very much off on both of these?
you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Agreed, the exposure is too high resulting in the photos looking a bit washed out. Also the 1st seems to have a lot of grain to it, was that a result from export? Or maybe your iso was to high? Try these again, you've got a beautiful subject. Shouldn't be too hard to get em' right!

Yeah, the iso was high at the beginning of the day because we were there before the sun rise. I forgot to change it until later. Also shooting into the sun was real tricky. Really had no idea what I was doing. Like I said.. I'm a noob. Any tips?

Do I have to be the one who asks if this is the wife or step daughter? Depending on the answer we may need to talk to Dr Phil...lol
Totally agree with you!

I agree with other comments about exposure, but I would like to say that I like the crop and pose in the first one.

I think the white balance is off. Was a flash used? In ACR it looks much too warm.

Let her know if She ever is in Utah to look me up I'm always looking for an amazingly hot model to practice on as well. Did you use a reflector or a flash to light her? with the sun to her back I'd do all you can to get more light on her to compensate.

I think you did a good job on both. Was the sun almost set in the first photo?

Actually this was at sunrise not sunset. As for the second pic. I included it because I like the expression on her face not necessarily the pose itself but I do see what you mean about the post. Wow soooo many things to consider just to take a photo. I really don't know how you guys keep all this stuff straight in your heads. But thank you for the comments, I need to read up about using my flash (which I clueless about..and yes I was using a flash) and proper exposure when shooting in sunlight.

sounds like you have the right idea... expose for the sunny background and hit her with the flash.
I'm a noob. Here to learn.
I think a flash would have made these pictures perfect.
