The shoot took place mid-day so I tried to get creative with the lighting. Any CC on the photo?

I really like the concept and the lighting. I'd crop a bit off the left, and maybe would have tried not to cut off her right foot (not sure if there are distracting elements below).

If the tree is your subject;) but I am assuming its not. she is far to little of the scene, and agree about the crop. Interesting tree, I would try this again, without her looking into the sun, but having it behind her and using fill flash if needed. Perhaps a lighter shirt as well as the dark really blends into the tree itself, but a solid color.

I clicked in here thinking I was going to see some rock climbing or mountain hiking or maybe even a BASE jump? :)

Where's the adventure?

Nice photo though. Very crisp and detailed, and I like the composition as well. But I don't do portraits so this is from my "layman's" point of view :D

Brown boots, dark shirt, dark hair all cause her to blend into the tree too much. This might work better if she had on different clothes and the light was better, maybe some fill to bring her out some.

I didn't crop it tighter because I thought the tree was neat, when I tried different crops in PP it didn’t give the same effect. I guess I was going more for an "abstract" look than a basic portrait.

We were limited with our shooting direction, to the right and left of this location were picnic sites.

Lighter clothing could have made a difference yes, thanks for your feedback!

We were on a photo shoot adventure climbing trees and such. ;) Thanks!

Abstract is not portrait, either you liked the tree or the model, but in this one, both lost. Its up to you to find the composition for the "shoot". A crop will find the girl OOF I am pretty sure. This looks like a good location to try again! And. the crop of her boot would have shown a picnic table or campsite?

I like this shot. You captured nice light on her face and she seems quite naturally relaxed. The rule of thirds is more of a suggestion anyway and this composition looks good to me. Maybe sharpen the tree trunk and branches a bit. You might also try her standing in the same setting next time.

No the picnic areas were to the sides of the tree. I took the photo with her boot out of the frame. I guess that’s something I need to keep an eye on for the future.

Thank you, I think I will head back to this location and try again!
