    I quite like the composition.... it works for me. The focus is a little off though, In general when shooting a portrait try to aim the focus on the nearest eye to the camera. As a first ever effort I'd say you've not done too bad. Most important thing is capturing the moment and you've certainly done that. :)

    Thank you so much for your comments it's a lot better than I thought a was going to get, it was literally a spare of the moment shot so I'm happy with that and will take your comments ant tips on board thank you so much

    Pretty good for a beginner PD. A lot to like photo wise but a few technical things to note for next time. @Blofeld has already mentioned the focus for the nearest eye. The image is overexposed. That's what causes the "Blown" parts around the left cheek and it also makes the grass go a bright yellow. Just wind down the exposure a bit for better colours. What camera did you use and what software do you have for editing. This will provide us with valuable information so we can give helpful advice. Cheers, Greg.

    Thank you, I try to catch the more natural spare of the moment shots rather than the posed shots as they appeal to me more.

    Thank you for replying Kerry. Great camera the 7dii. I have the 7D and very pleased with it. Some more questions for you: what computer system do you have -PC or Mac?
