I don't know, looks sharp and colorful for me, correct WB. I'm not portrait expert, very pleasant result for my eye.
May be bring exposure up little bit.

As with most of your street images, if you go messing with it, your going to mess it up.

That's sweet Meeko. Colors in that image really pop.

QUOTED IMAGE

100F2 at F2.

QUOTED IMAGE

At first glance, even before noticing the flag or Canada Post signage, I knew that was Ontario. Just has that look. Rural. Grew up there, nearby, in Guelph. Nice shots.


Check out my feedback here.

thanks, i know what you mean, i find myself adjusting too many sliders lately! i only adjusted exposure, contrast, and sharpness on these! i really didn't have an idea of what i wanted to accomplish, we randomly stopped and had her stand at random walls while my not so sober friend was blinding her with a reflector :oops:

here is another

I havent messed with custom functions, so,,,
if i set the back focus button on custom settings, then which button would i press to focus!?
Also, when is(back button focus) this useful?????

You can switch the focus to the AE exposure button the back of the camera. Then you focus with your thumb and exposure can be locked by pushing the shutter button half way. Take the shot like always by pressing fully.

It is useful when you don't want to lock exposure at the same time you focus (by pressing half-way). I also find it better for locking and tracking when I use AI Servo.

did a little research and just set my back button focusing haha.
this is very usefully, usually I would just keep my hand on the AF/MF switch on the lens and do it that way every time I recompose. but this seems far more easy to use.

I never heard of switching off AF to focus and recompose. Why not just lock by holding the shutter half-way and then recompose?

I use brush in LR to do local adjustments after correcting of exposure for entire image.
On picture above I overblown entire exposure and used brush to bring back lady's shadow at the window and big dog.
