The first one is definitely a winner. It tells a story, and she has a good expression. The second one is a good picture too. The third one is too plain; she has her body facing straight at the camera; It's always better to have the subject turned a bit one way or the other. Also her arms are straight down to the sides; it's better to do something with the hands rather than have them hanging there. Other than that, good job, you captured a special moment. I know you didn't ask for pointers but maybe some comments can help in the future.

Thank for the comment. I liked the first two and best but could not tell you why. I think you hit it. It was to posed compaired to the other most of my PIC are of my girls are in sports (swimming) and their are no poses in them. Thank for the advise on positioning I will try that next time.

like the second one, she looks like a little angel:-)

I just noticed something else - on the second one, and to a lesser degree on the third, your color temperature is set too low so the pictures appear too blue. Adjusting the color teperature should give her some warmth in the flesh tones.

Flashes could not be used, so I used a coffee filter to set custom WB. Would a Gray card have been better?

I know that if I had shot in raw I could have custom set the Temp. Is ther a way to do this in elements on a jpg?

LTBerry May 7, 2004 1:37 PM

I dont know a great deal about elements; I use Photoshop CS, but I believe in the quick fix dialog box there is something for color correction. Anyone reading this that has elements, can you help us out? This is also something that you should be able to do on-camera. What camera do you have? Shooting raw would let you customize the color temperature later on your computer but all digital cameras have some sort of color temp adjustment on-camera that will be applied to jpgs.
