    Tried to apply GBRandy's advice. I know a little more about post processing than I do neurosurgery. (next to nothing). I'm learning though.:smile:

  2. Alright, it's working! You can see your daughters face much better in this one!! Is that just dirt or is it a black eye from taking one off the grill?

    Not sure...but it was really dry and dusty yesterday. Probably dirt, not a black eye. Softball can be rough..but it's still not football.:smile:

    Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.
  4. Well done... these are much better and your daughter's pic is much improved!
  5. Good shots made better.

    Thanks. I took GBRandy's advice, and it seemed to have worked. I was trying to make my daughter as pretty as me.:biggrin: (Thank God..she passed me in the dept!):biggrin::biggrin:

    Thank you Mark.

    As I said, I have benefited from good advice here. The best way for me to learn is to hang around here..where there is talent and knowledge.

    #1 & #3 are bit bright....but #2 is exactly what I was thinking....maybe even a little more adjustment....Well done Jeff. As was said earlier....Great shots made even better....nice work.

    EDIT: BTW, this one very strong reason to shoot RAW. All adjustable after the fact.....

    Thanks Randy,
    I agree about #1 and #3...I had that set wrong in the camera, and tried to tone it down some..but didn't do so well.
    It wasn't my best ever outing, photography wise. But I'm learning.

    Thanks for the comments and thanks for the advice.

    I saw these earlier and your PP has helped a lot. As Randy said perhaps a bit to much brightness in 1&3 --these are good solid shots #2 is my favorite
    Keep them coming
  11. very good Jeff. Little things can make a big difference and it is obvious to me that Randy's advice was spot on!

    The shots look good Jeff, seems that maybe the exposure settings were not optimal, but they cleaned up well in post. I like the catcher shot alot, the intensity in her eyes speaks volumes.
