Just a thought, next time maybe with that pose, get down a bit to put yourself more at the same level? You could shoot portrait mode to get more vertical material as well, or the landscape as you have it.
Thanks TeamSpeed. I'd love to do it again if I ever see this girl again. It was a quick candid burst during a 4th of July festival.
I don't know Olafs, second one has potential.
I don't mind it as a candid, depends what the OP wants to use it for.
Nik is FREE by the way Qbx.
I think what Olafs meant by "let it go" is to be happy with the last edit. At least that's how I took it. And I did d/l the Nik software and am taking some time to experiment with it. Will post some results shortly.
Thanks for the critique.
