Default Easter morning

Easter egg hunt at the lake. My daughter doesn't want me posting the children but she agreed to one that doesn't show their faces.

They were so cute and so excited!

Would anyone mind giving me some feed back on this photo? I gather it is not an attention grabber. Which is worse, the subject or processing?

I don't see a subject problem, but that is me. You have one of the little ones on the 1/3 in and up line, so according to some "you should do this...rules" that is well positioned. There are foreground, mid, and background elements. So that leaves it to processing. It is punchy enough is maybe the question. I think it could use a bit of boost in color, and some brightening too. It seems more dark on the left and while the little ones shirt isn't white in real life, it is probably a tick too "drab".

Hope that is good enough to get you something and sparks others....

Thank you Mr. Pickles. It was a cloudy day. I chose that level of exposure to keep other elements from being too bright and the colors true. The shirt wasn't white*. I'll go back to the drawing board and see if can lighten it up. Although this isn't my favorite photograph from the weekend, I like it a lot.

Edit: it was a sweater and it is white

I think it would be more powerful if the background and the little boy was more out of focus and closer in not he little girl. I know I have 7 grands and am not suppose to post them online too much but parents can put them on Instagram. oh well.

I guess I'll have to make do- I can't go back and redo. I still like it but I always want to improve.

I understand not wanting images of your children online, but like you said, mine post pictures publicly. I guess she imagines Photocamel is a hot bed of perverts as opposed to Facebook.

A nice image of your grand kids having fun.
I am preferring the second version.
