Sunlit Walk

Rebecca K. Renz June 23, 2006

I would love comments on this photo. I wanted to have the sunlight streaming in but am distracted by the sun spots. Any advice on how to improve this type of shot would be appreciated. I am uploading version two for comparison.
Thanks,
Rebecca

First I am not expert, but as I am looking at these shots here's my thought.

Really nice pose and setting, also the comp is nice. And I like the lighting, I would agree that the sun spots are diestracting.
I wonder if by getting the focus on the people would help. You will proably still have the sun streaks, but it might look better with sharp DOF.
The image is pretty soft all around, but especially the people.

However this is all on opinion. Can't wait to se what you come up with : ) #2940931

Here is the same pathway from a different angle removing the sunstreaks. I like this one as well, just wanted a dreamy picture too. If you have an example of dreamy sunstreaking to share please show us #2940959

Here is another dreamy lit pose. This was inside the greenhouse. I think I like it better than the first two? #2941004

I like the next two that you posted, they are a little soft. But still very nice! : )
I couldn't find in my pics any setting/subject like yours (I don't do a lot of people.) but these two have the sun streaks in it. Sorry about not having any thing better : (
But again, I'm not really an expert. Just giving an opinion. #2941232

Rebecca, very nice photos. On the first two, I think that a lens hood, or a polarizer should get rid of the sun spots. #2943002
