Very nice pictures, both of them; you obviously know what you are doing..

My daughter is also my main excuse for playing with my camera... aren't they wonderful?.


Best wishesMike..

Two very sound photos..

You ask for C & C..

I think the second one could have done with being zoomed out just a touch to give you slightly more context (But I know good clear action shots like this don't just grow on trees! Moral? - With action shots do not frame too tight. You can crop it later.).

Regarding the first shot the B & W makes it. But I wonder whether it would not be better framed as a 8 x 10 portrait mode:.

What do you think?.

Hope you don't mind me tinkering with your photo. If you do just say and I will of course take it down.Chris Elliott.

I agree that the first image looks better cropped - it concentrates the image on the little girl. Cropping also gets rid of the blown highlights in the top right and bottom right corners of the image, although part of the little girl's hair and a couple of rocks near her feet are still blown..

It is worth checking the histogram after this kind of shot. -0.5 or -1.0 EV would probably have improved the image..

I like the second shot.Chris R..

Thank you ChrisX2 for your opinions. I see what you mean, it looks better after you altered the size. Great learning for me also..

I liked the first one. If I was doing PP, I would try to make the contrast between the upper left corner and lower right even harsher..

Second one is very colourful, it is good the way it is. If you play around RGB levels a bit, it might yield some interesting results..

Both nice pics!.

My only suggestion (and it's only a "peculiarity" of mine!) would be to rotate (and recrop accordingly) the second colour shot about 30 or so clockwise. This reduces the common tendency for people to tilt their heads to get a 'better' view of the little girl's facial expression..

Cheers ..
