Been a while since I last posted, glad to be back!

Could I get some critique on this image? Anything else I could do to make it better?





Thanks in advance!

I thought it looked a little flat, so I made a copy and just adjusted brightness and contrast:

Nice shot of the girls. My suggestion is to make it off center by cropping the viewer's left side.

The "fix" by Ernie brightened it up a fair amount, however in the process it blew out the red channel and made their faces a bit white. When/if you process your pic yourself, watch for the overexposure of the red channel - maybe mask that area and process the rest.

Thanks Ernie and Jim!

Their cheeks look blown out now, but maybe just adding a bit more contrast would suffice. Ill revisit it once again. Thanks for the cropping suggestion, I totally agree.

+ 1 on some more pop (e.g., s-curve) and a new crop. Good shot though

Maybe a square crop, just below the hands The gigantic boots are a real distraction IMO. Cute!

Your selection around the girls looks good, but near their ankles where the blur ends is rather blunt. It would look more natural if you used a gradient mask on your blur layer. Cute girls!
