Challenge: Natural Light Indoor Portrait (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Date: Aug 19, 2012
Date Uploaded: Aug 19, 2012

what can I say. There is a reason I do mostly studio lit portraits. It is because I don't have a good spot in my house for natural light. My house I lived in about 5 years ago had a great room for natural lighting. I suppose I could have gone on location but this challenge was sort of an after thought taken on the last day.
Of course now that I said all of that I really don't know why I am apologizing for this image. I really like it, I also like my more natural editing style I did on it. Sometimes a photo just is what it is. As for the crop, just sort of an experiment. I sort of like it sort of don't. Her expression is just what I wanted, sort of bored sort of sad. Kind of how I feel on a rainy day sometimes.

Jenn you are a great photographer, but this portrait is way under your level. Her expression is a little bored and the square crop doesn't work. Perhaps I'm wrong considering your score, but I wanna be frank. That's what happens when you're very good at what you do, people expect always the best from you :)

Now that I see this is yours... I recognize your daughter.

But... it's not your usual brilliance.

(Thank you for that... I'd have been bumped out. *grin*)

It's lovely... but... not your usual innovative brilliance.

OMG - I love this one so much. Beautiful eyes - wonderful freckles - and the perfect expression for a rainy day. My top pick.

After some indecision, I've decided that I really like this. Not perfect from a technical standpoint, but I think that is part of it's overall charm. Nice capture. Well done.
