[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know that the exposure of this image is all wrong but I simply love the mood of this picture that I just had to share it. Hope I have a chance to re-do this shot but with better exposure that time. (I did learn a lot of technical tips in getting really beautiful pictures from the workshop)

I did some lightening adjustments to lighten up her face without eliminating the beautiful ambient light

Hi Mae
Actually I don't think the exposure is wrong. I think it works well to create a tender and romantic image. Beautiful tones and mood, and very good composition, your subject's placement within the frame is superb.
Nice work, thanks for sharing!

Hi Mae
Lovely shot Mae,Good mood and I like soft lighting on her back although lighing from lamp is a bit strong but everything is good.

Hi Mae, rather I think it worked and worked well! Maybe just a bit of bounceflashing could have done a bit with the dark area on the bed but for a moody look, it's fine. TFS. Wonder if she went through with it? ;)

I don't agree with you. Different lightning would kill the mood and atmosphere here. Like this it is simple, romantic and passionate photo at same time. more light and thus more detail will ruin that.

Regards Darko

really nice and emotional photo
great use of light
well done

Hello Mae,

:) to me nothing is wrong with the exposure, you only need a fill in flash, just a little to illuminate the subjects shadow area. Were you using auto focusing? Cheers always.
