Default Daughter and Friends on the Coast

This photo was taken at sunset. You can see, on the far left, the wooden pier railing that the girls are sitting upon. I used a flash and a CP Filter.

Although you can't see the sun due to the clouds, I tried to frame the sun as the 4th face in the photo. That's why the three girls are pushed to the right.

Shot with 5D Mark ii, canon 24-105 lens. F6.3, 1/25 second, ISO 200 framed at 70mm.

How could I have made this a better photo?

Thanks!!

More interaction of the subjects would make it more interesting. Even having the outer two leaning in toward the middle girl would be an improvement. This is a nice photo. I'm not trying to be unduly critical.

if you didnt explain about "4th face" being the sun (that, although it's there, you would never know without you telling us) I would have asked you why the girls were so far to the right.

I am not a big fan of the cropping. The hands of the two girls on the right are cut off, and although the sky is beautiful, i think there is too much of it above the girls.

The flash was probably necessary because it was darkening, but i think it resulted in washed out flat faces.

But of course, i am being pretty critical of a good picture.
