My mother insisted I take a family portrait, so everyone piles into the back yard (dogs included) and with no real good location because of some harsh sunlight she decides to have everyone stand under this tree. I didn't have my flash with me so no fill light available. The first pic was the result. Now, naturally, she loves the pic and wants a gallary wrap on canvas made. My PP skills are rudamentary at best but my lame attempt is the second pic. Can anyone give me any suggestions to PP either the first or second shot and do you think a canvas print would come out OK?
