Hello, pretty new here...have been working on my composition and some PP techniques and am seeking feedback. Do you think the color cast is a bit pink? The whites look OK, but it's been hard to get the right tone on her face.

Thanks much,
PP

Maybe if you rotated it, so that the woman's face is the bottom of the photo instead of the left, it might help the angle look more appropriate. I think your WB is off because the white of her eyes look pinkish tan and her shirt looks gray.

Thanks for the tips, Nissaea, LVD--much appreciated.

The original photo is portrait orientation, with the face at the bottom. I thought the 90* rotation made it look more interesting, and also more balanced since the focus follows the subject from left to right.

Regarding the angle of the shot, and being flattering: not flattering because she's basically upside down? I have to take what I can get, my wife never let's me take her picture! ;)

Thanks again,
PP

it's a bit of a disconnect for me. cause her face looks beautiufl, happy and calm until i reach the strained wrinkled part in her forehead. i think that is coming from the angle of the shot. i'm probably just being over critical. don't listen to me lol

To me, the pop of bright pink from the baby's shirt fights with the focus. So my eye is bouncing back and forth, right to left, instead of left to right, because I notice the color first. I think having it how it was originally shot would lead the eye into the photo, instead of back and forth. But I am just guessing. :)
