kid by the bay
|[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe|
|while walking along the Baywalk strip in Manila, i chance upon this cute kid. stopped and asked her parents if i can take pictures of their kid and they gladly obliged. quite tricky if you'll use the matrix metering because of the predominantly strong sunlight so i tried using the spot metering which yielded a better result.|
on PS, i adjusted the highlights using the curve adjustment layer then applied the smart sharpen filter.

Good portrait, my friend! I like your composition and you manage the lighting well, with good colours and details in her face... Fun to see a kid in Manila wearing a cap like that, in something that must be 30C +! Background? Well... could have been better, but all right

A superb portrait, with excellent sharpness, lighting, & contrast. Congratualtions!

A very nice shot with good control of light and depth of field. I am just puzzled by this kid who wears a woolen cap and a fleece lined sweat jacket! The coolest it gets in February is maybe 70F!
Hey Ronnie! It's so good to see your portrait here! This is a very good picture. I like this little girl's facial expression. I think it's cute. I would crop this picture a little bit and maybe turned it into black and white. I'll post workshop in a min. Best wishes!
excellent portrait Ron :)
the colors, sharpness and details look great
i see you got a new camera :) welcome to the DSLR world :P
