watch the horizon lines, usually you dont want them going through the persons neck and its crooked. the shiny jewelry on her stomach is distracting.
what were the camera settings for this?

thanks, r.w., being a newbie, I never noticed the horizon problem, so thanks for pointing that out. Also, I have no idea what the settings were, but I discovered after the shoot that the camera was set on a low quality pixel count mode, unfortunately.

Re the sparkle, I thought that really looked good in the pic, but I guess that's opinion...

No offense,but the shot itself has everything wrong with it. Why didn't you use your rebel for this shot? The shot is underexposed,horizon not level,arm chopped off,the pose seems awkward,and the focus is off. With such a lovely model/wife,you've got to make her shine. Your rebel could have captured this shot a whole lot better. Turn image editing on and I can see what I can do.

Thanks for the feedback, and I turned image editing on. Have at it. I did not own the Rebel at the time, but I quickly figured out we both enjoyed doing shoots and that I needed a better camera. Bought the Rebel not long after...I really do want to make her "shine" and am learning from this forum.

Worse than that. I started to correct it but when I saw that the green histogram barely reached 50% I decided it was a waste of time.

Here's one take.

In ACR, WB tool, click on the white surf.

Wow....thanks for the help with this. These look much better. I need to learn much, obviously, including what a histogram is and how to read it. I also have nothing to edit pics with except for what photobucket offers.

Thank you guys for taking the time to help!

@Whoty
no offense but you really need to learn how to retouch an image that looks horrible

Just tried to download it and I'm getting an error saying "disc is full" so will figure that out and try again.
