Shot with natural light in the shade of a pine tree, with gold reflector for fill.

The first is straight out of the camera with no PS, the second is with an auto contrast adjustment.

Which is better? I like it right out of the camera, but I also like it with the contrast adjustment.

Your comments are appreciated.

She's quite pretty, but IMO the auto-contrast gives the skin a blotchy appearance. You might try adding contrast to the eyes and teeth, but holding back on the skin. But frankly, I think the straight shot is lovely.

Both images are good, the first one is a little better. You used a gold reflector for fill, try silver and see how you like it, especially with her fair skin tone.

Looks like #1 is the winner. Thanks everyone, I should have known anything "automatic" wouldn't fly with this crowd.

Hey,

I agree number 1 is the best but, I would like to see slight more contrast and saturation.
