I had a chance to do some shooting today towards sunset. The intent was to get one of just my wife and I (which I did) but I think that this one was my favorite.

I'd be happy to hear of ways that you think that I could improve it. Too much highlight? Tighter crop?

nice looking folks
as for improvement
i like the OOF areas above the people
but... it's too bright up there
either i'd crop that off... or do some selective DARKENING
we can play with the image a bit, if you like

do you have a BIGGER VERSION we can use?

thanks...
just a bit of quick work
crop
some 25% shadows and highlights to give their hair more "light"
a bit of sharpening.... USM at 80/0.8/3
color balance fiddling

great pic here; you've captured a great moment (and it's next to impossible to get three people looking this happy at the same time...).

And Spalding's crop kicks a**!

It's a wonderful picture, Erik. You're surrounded by beauty, and it's clear they adore you, you lucky fellow. I wouldn't change a thing except for the crop. The 4x6 aspect ratio shows too much of the background at the top, and a slightly awkward view up the ladies' shorts at the bottom :redface:. But cropping for 8x10 solves both nicely.
