Default My Kids at Harpers Ferry

This is a picture I took today of my kids under a railroad bridge at Harpers Ferry, WV. The colors did not come out quite right. Not too sure what I did wrong, any suggestions? What can be done in Photoshop to correct? It was taken with an Olympus C-3000Z.

Seems to me the wood bridge is correctly exposed. The cute kids are over exposed. Was your camera in auto mode?

Hi Carl

This is a great photo for the moment you have captured and the composition of the photo.

It could possibly be enhanced a lil bit in PhotoShop or Paint Shop Pro (black border perhaps, too) but that does not diminish its greatness!

Thanks for sharing!

Interesting... At home this morning on my LCD monitor the kids looked over exposed. Now at work on my CRT monitor they don't look near as over exposed. Go figure......

Thanks for the comments Chuck and Digicamfan! I'm thinking of returning to the site next week and retake the picture (if the kids will sit through it again).

Thanks for the comments!

WV, Harpers Ferry is very nice this time of year. Since it is in a valley, the fall veiws are amazing. I hope you can get there to see it. My wife and I take our kids several times a year.
