Thumbs up for a good effort.

You had difficult lighting to work with.

I had a similar problem yesterday with highlights blowing out.

Next time I will try some fill flash

cheers

I like the shot - the lightings difficult esp with all shadows but it does work. I was just wondering if a white reflector to the right of the young ladies face would have helped the pic a bit more by bringing out her face and reduce the shadows without having to use a flash to fill in.

Cheers

Bad lights! You hit it right on the money.... Kate the lady in the Picture and owner is my Doubles Table Tennis Partner. This was our first venture and your comments help and make me feel very good for the first try. I'm sure we will try again and again as she is a wonderful Lady.

The fill flash I could have used but was afraid of spooking the horse with the first time and all.

The Fz7 did a nice job for a novice and she knew I was so that works out... Seeing some of the other shots makes me want to go higher camera wise... Blaa Blaa Blaa...

(tim) Yes you are right but the shoot was more of a candid kind this time around. And I can say you comments were very welcome as well. I had about 15 out of the the 340 that came out pretty good. And your reply does help vs just views...

Thank you Tim

Tim, You should be able to fix that picture in Photoshop, I made just a couple of quick adjustments and got these results. Jim

I like the idea, but the highlights are blown. You can't fix that in photshop without having bracketed the exposure. This would be an interesting thing to try some of the high-dynamic-range stuff on.

I would also crop out the right third of photo.

This would enhance the portrait, imho :idea:

Very nice pose of the lady and her horse. They do seem to have bonded well.
