    Enhancing a snapshot

    I would like some feedback and suggestions for improving a picture (snapshot) I took when out walking with my son. Having read through Colin's tutorials I realise I did not get the lighting right - probably should have used a reflector or fill-in flash, I did not zoom in enough and so I need to rescue it!

    Hi Phil,

    No worries - hopefully you can see how the lack of fill light has "under-cooked" areas like eye sockets though. Compare it with something like this where I've used a reflector ...
