About the Image(s)

This was taken on a train excursion about a month ago. The mother had given me permission, and I loved how he was just peaking over the seat. Having come from outside and taking photos of the passing foliage, I'd forgotten to change my settings. That explains the huge ISO as I always keep that on auto. My Canon R6 Mark II was at 105mm, F7.1, 1/500 sec, and ISO 12800 It had a tremendous amount of noise, so I ran it through Topaz, and it helped. I am curious what you think of it and appreciate any comments. Thanks!

Cute image -- I wish I could see more of her eyes... if you use the brush in Lightroom and select Iris Enhance it may give you more definition to the eyes that can be seen. It is still is a good capture.   Posted: 11/02/2023 13:14:12

This is just too good of a capture. We have patterns, Leading lines, and also lovely eyes of the cute girl. This is Competition level stuff you must put this image in competition.   Posted: 11/03/2023 03:50:07

I like this image. The light on the side on the head is very good. I like all the seats as it gives a certain feeling to the photo.   Posted: 11/07/2023 16:43:53

What a great capture. Nicely done!. I wonder if the bright windows an lines are a bit distracting. If you cropped down from the top maybe 20% it might reduce the brightness a bit...   Posted: 11/10/2023 19:26:04
