First try at this. It's a pretty standard shot, almost portrait, but trying for something glamorous. More later when I get done with processing. Am I on the right track?

Gregory,

Here are some things to think about. It's a pretty good shot.

If your subject would have leaned into you more or dropped her shoulder and yet maintained good posture as she is, it would have not created a scrunched up neck syndrome.

Also the problem with "poor foliage on trees" are that it tends to create some distractions at times and the small tree in the background cuts through your subject. Try and position yourself to minimize these effects.

To me there is not enough light on her face. Bags under her eyes are accented more because of a fill light vs a main light into your subjects face. Overhead light is stronger then the light that is coming into her. Notice her chest and certain parts of her face(cheek bone under eyes) that the natural overhead light falls on that has more light there?

Amputee syndrome by not showing her right arm. Lean her into the camera more and position the the other arm to balance and show so it appears she really does have another arm.

Just some things I see.....

Thanks for the feedback, it's greatly appreciated.

Here's a dumb question: we went late on the indoor stuff and were losing light outside when we got to this point. I ended up using a Canon 75-300mm f4.5-5.6 IS USM lens to help with image stabilization. I'm guessing that I should be using a different lens. Any suggestions on a tight budget?

In most stores for 399 or less.

2.8 will get you that extra stop and a half when you need it. Lens is one of the sharpest.

I will certainly agree with that. I have the 28-75 and love it. It's a great lense.
