Walking along the boulevard at LAX, I asked my wife to stand in the branches of a tree hanging down. I kinda liked the effect - the shadows add to it. This was amongst the first few dozen pics I shot with my new G9

Any comments or opinions?

As a snap shot, its fine.
Beyond that, I would say you need some fill light on the left side of the face.
She is squinting which tenses up the forehead.

I tried to bounce my flash off the ceiling once. Left a mark on the ceiling and broke my flash.

Don't understand why you would put her behind the tree?


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I put her behind the tree for the effect of being partially concealed by it. It was intentionally the theme of the picture.

OK, fair enough! Thats why I posted and asked for feedback, so I can learn more about how to do it the best way possible.
Thanks, I appreciate your comments.

This was one of those spur of the moment ideas where I had her stand behind the branches and I thought it looked cool. Guess I should have filled the face shadow with flash. Being the first of that kind of picture with my G9, I was still getting used to how it works. In the days that followed on the same trip I got some awesome outside shots in the sun using flash for fill.
