You've got a few nice shots there, especially the last one, having a willing model really helps :)
Keep shooting! :)

How do you know it was cropped and not composed that way at the point of capture? You should really be saying you like the composition and not the crop. It's using photographic terminology better.

No.2 is a very good shot and as stated above the crop works. The first shot doesn't really work due to the extreme tilt and the harsh light.


5D,20D, some lenses and stuff

Like you said, the photo hasn't been cropped. It's the original picture..

I know he first picture has a little bit harsh light but it was very sunny and I'm not that good in light room.. Can the picture change a lot with some pp?

Thx for the comments

As I said, it wasn't the purpose to have a photoshoot. Just shot a few quick shots while taking a walk.

Nobody has any tips to remove the harsh light or something. I like to see the picture improved. And any tips in pp are welcome!

removing harsh lighting is extremely diffucult. That why whey i shoot i rather under expose the image rather than to blow out my highlights. Once you blow your highlights there is no way to recover detail. Specially in image 1 the best thing would be to move the subject into a shaded area or try to diffuse the sunlight. I don't thing there is a way to fix image 1 when it come to the lighting composition is good. As far as the rest of the images love #3 her look is stunning with a lil PP that picture is money. =)

As others have said, I like comp. in #3. Although, surprising, it looks a tad soft. And #1 is a little hot but what bothers me more is her clawing the tree.

So most people like #3 the most. What can I do to make the photo less soft and maybe there is some work to do on the colors?

Thx

Yes, it's a lot better now. The image looks more 'real' and sharper.
I'll have a try.
If there are more tips on pp, please let them come :)
