    Have a guess :)

    Hi Javier,

    In my opinion, neither are "optimal";

    The first is under-exposed - unsharpened - and with a colourcast,

    The second has over-exposed highlight detail and still appears to be unsharpened.

    Would you like me to do a quick edit on it for you to show you what I think may look better?

    I practiced today with this new shot at:

    ISO 400
    f/5.6
    200mm
    Practicing a portrait
    I believe; looks better.
