What Was I Thinking?

Did I ruin a perfectly good shot here? Nice pose, nice smile. Composition? -- not so good. And what makes it worse is I shot a bunch like this. Somehow, in my mind, the blown sky didn't really bother me as I shot these photos of Chelsea in March. I was so caught up in shooting shallow depth of field that I never really noticed how distracting that wedge of white was in the background. Hard to miss, huh? And the dark roof right next to it makes it even more pronounced. So, for the rest of the week, I'll be spending about an hour or so per night on a variation of this shot and posting a couple of versions -- each with some unique toning and texturing. This one is pretty much straight out of camera, with just some raw changes and a crop. Feel free to comment or post suggestions on how you'd fix this one.

  1. I will anxiously await your variations. It is easy to be distracted by a pretty face.
