    My Beautiful Daughter and Her Beau

    She asked me to take a portrait of her and her new beau and I was only too happy to oblige. I'm happy with the result. I replaced the background, but I am aware of the subtle halo around the edges from my extraction process.

    f4.5, 1/125, ISO100, 75mm.

    Very nice framing of the happy couple, though it would be a bit better if you can allow all of the man's ear to be displayed. Nice diffused light!

    Consider reducing the saturation rather dramatically of the background to ensure that it doesn't draw the eye away from the subject. Also apply a "warmth" silder to the entire photo to make the skin tones less warm, as it doesn't matter in this case that the other tones are also affected. (I tried it and liked the change a lot.)

    For my portraits, I purposely lean towards warmer in them to give them a feel of comfort. I try not to overdo it.
