Hi all,

All taken yesterday with the D200 + 70-200vr, early afternoon (to avoid harsh light).

Couple of questions;

Are the crops tight enough?
Does Caitlin get lost in the background?
Does the B&W work for you?

Thanks for any advice (as usual!)

These remind me of kid-in-garden shots from a century or more ago - they are wonderful. Answering your question, no, the model stands apart from the background nicely. I like the color shots MUCH more than the b&w, cause with hair like that why would you want to desaturate it?

I'm going to go against the grain here and say that I feel they're a little under exposed. Especially the second one. The skin tones are a little cold in the first couple.

Cute little girl though. Keep shooting!

Hmmm, to be honest it was a struggle to keep the highlights from blowing.

I will take a look at the WB - That for commenting.

Thanks Chris - They do look a little 'Fairy at the end of Garden' (if that makes sense!)
