heres a few indoor shots taken at the same time as the first shots I posted









This one is from the first batch, I tried to stuff with it in PS but could not correct the blown highlights on her back so tried this feathering approach

I like the first one a lot -- it's very candid and came out well. As for the rest, I really don't like vignettes but that's just my personal preference. The smile is not quite right in #3 -- it appears she was in the middle of, or about to, say something. It's not natural, like the one right below it is. In #4 you did mask some of the hard sunlight by making it look intentional as part of the vignette, but it makes the picture very high-key overall. I'm not sure that anything can be done about that though.

Thanks, the smile in number three is a little forced, she was mucking around when I shot it:-)

tHE FIRST ONE IS WELL DONE BECAUSE IT IS A CANDID KIND OF AND VERY RELAX PHOTO BUT SOMETHING ADDITIONAL SHOULD BE DONE TO IMPROVE A LITTLE BIT.

tHE LAST ONE IS THE MOST PROMISING ONE BUT THE TREATMENT THAT YOU HAVE DONE IS NOT THE RIGHT.

First try a little bit of contrast changing to bring out the face and eyes, then try to kill the light a little bit on her back but not as you did here -try selective color adjustment for example-, blur the green background and you will come out with better picture I think

Hope to see your result

regards Zak

ALF,

The first shot is brilliant...unposed and unorchestrated (if there is such a word). The other three are like something from a High School yearbook and a bit of a yawn to be perfectly honest.

Personally, I like candid photos much better than "manipulated" photos.
