About the Image(s)

This image was shot through a motel window. I was watching these pretty sisters playing in a field and was lucky to grab a couple shots. Image was processed in ON1. This is the first time I used their sharpening feature which can be set for fixed focus, screen viewing or printing. I think it made a difference. Happy New Year Everyone!

I'm loving the feeling of "adorable"! I like being able to see the expression on their faces. Your shutter speed captured their hair in a way that really helps the feeling of motion...just like the position of the torsos. Did you shoot in shutter-speed priority mode?

The blurriness of the dandelion background/foreground by the children's feet feels odd that it isn't in the same focus as the girls. I wonder if ON1 could sharpen them to be equally sharp as the legs and shoes.   Posted: 01/11/2020 13:26:19

I felt the green grass background really enhanced the girls in the photo. To me, shutter speed and photo really helped tell a story. I believe shooting thru the window itself made some of the dandelions blurry in front of them. I felt it didn't take anything away from the picture overall.   Posted: 01/14/2020 06:36:58
