The Girls

This is what happens when you're too lazy to setup the tripod, you're forced to shoot more open than the scene requires and you end up with a less than ideal shot.

Taken during the September Brisbanites Flickr Meetup.

    nothing wrong with it, its fine as a photo of the day, if you were doing a proper portrait you would set it up differently altogether and it would probably look more set up as well !!

    it's a really great shot david. the softness of those beautiful girls, the dark of the tree root, the solid hard tombstone, even some nice dappled bokeh - it all comes together very well.

    No no, if you look at it large you can see the depth of field was slightly too narrow. Anne is out of focus (very slight, but noticable), and the entire shot is too dark in the foreground, while being blown out in the sky.

    I dunno, I love the light in it. I think it is a really nice group shot.
