No jp, I didn't use a flash. She was sitting in partial shade under a tree and it was a bright sunny day. The sun is a bit much on her right arm but I didn't want to disturb her. Were you suggesting a fill inflash. ?

Yes, I would use a flash to avoid the shadow on the face and neck. As you can see the sun is under her nose but around it is shadow - I think that is disturbing for those who see the picture (and so was my first impression when I saw this pic)

but if you like it as it is than it´s OK. I have just expressed my opinion.

then what I noticed were her eyes and they are full of feelings. This is for me very important on family photos - to capture the feelings.

I agree jp, i'm not very happy with the shadows myself. I never think of using flash outdoors, i'll remember the tip for the future. Thanks. :-)

Hi Jack, it is very usual to use the flash outside; also when the sun is shining to avoid the shadow.

JackRussell,

One could say you have captured a moment in the life of your wife.

On the other hand, I say you captured some "magic"

In your wife's eyes, this forum member sees peace, contentment and an inherent kindness.

Very, very..., JackRussell!

Hi Jack,

I disagree with jp80 about the shadows. The shadows add charater and mood and I feel that without that it would be just another sterile photo of a lovely lady. She is outside enjoying nature and when you are outside you are bound to have shadows on your face. I wouldn't change a thing!

She's a very lovely lady and you have captured that. I'm all for "natural" photos rather than the posed/set-up shot. This is great!

Rose
