In His Element

Beau Hudspeth Photography July 25, 2007

Hi Lena.

I like the composition of this photo a lot, but feel that the initial draw in the image is not the face of the boy, but rather, the bright green leaf in the upper left.

If you brighten his face and darken the leaf, you will have a winner. #699243

I think Beau has a point - though it's a great image and I love the lighting on his face. #4562282

I think it is very well done too except the very bright white right in the middle. Have you considered going into Photoshop and darkening it a bit? It pulls the eye away from his face. #4563314
