    Thats good!


    Just keep the subject off the frame edges and watch for distracting backgrounds when shooting.

    Its ok here, but consider the use of a reflector to throw light back on the subjects face (can be something as plain and simple as a newspaper, positioned out of frame) when doing backlit shots.

    Hi Cris - Lovely shot. I agree with the comments by Taken and Shreds. Look to blurring backgrounds in such shots by using a wide aperture and hence low depth of field. A square format would be appropriate, see other recent posts by Antonio Coreia. Sharpness can be a problem as well, and you might want to look at your processing software to enhance (only a little) the image sharpness.

    thanx for the comment. I cropped the pic, since I had to leave it in 293 kb or so to be uploaded in here...

    thanks david..i use a point and shoot camera...therefore no choice to modify aperture and depth of field..that's why I'm moving to SLR camera (my initial posts at the forum...)...i kind of expecting great differences with the quality of my pics with the SLR (hoping not to be over-optimistic about the issue)...cheers
