good scenic "arrangement"...

weak "interpretation" - why selective colouring? why overexposed background?...

a missed opportunity... pitty...

Default To bantonbuju: good to hear

Hi Jerzy,

Good to hear from you. It is true the background is bit overexposed, but if I concentrated only on background, the main subject would get underexposed. I enjoyed playing with this picture, so partial desaturation was my choice which could highlight the subject and forget about the overexposed background. Do give me suggestion, what could be done in this kind of situation where you want to take the subject in shade along with background in sunlight. I would love to hear from an experienced person.

Hope to hear from you.

With Best Regards,

first of all: i always have an exposure reduced by 0.7 to 1.3 EV (it's always easier to process underexposed rather than overexposed images)
second: i'd turn the mettering mode to "spot" and measure from the FG man's face
third: good to shoot in RAW

and last but not least: no need to "create" extra attention by selective-colouring to the foreground model if he is already the key "object" in the photo, in my opinion

best, j.
