My photography professor loved this composition, but did not like the technical problems with the lighting. Well in the last year I have learned a lot about editing raw files, and I think it shows. Here is what the picture looked like the first time I printed it, when did not know much about editing raw files.
|Carols hair and the sky were blow out in the original exposure|
If I could do this shot all over again I would underexpose for the background and use a flash to light up the foreground. Thanks to Patrick Penoyer for teaching me how to do that during a protest in Oly. And thanks to Clinton for give me some tips on editing raw files. I love it when I find people who share their knowledge simply for the joy of giving and teaching.
