Snapshot of my eldest daughter with the 16-50mm and K20d

by BODYHEAT

This was taken when I was just playing around and getting to know the camera and lens, but I think it shows off the qualities of both quite well and is very sharp for a zoom.
It always helps having a beautiful subject

The subject is beautiful. It would do her even better justice to take a little more care what background you choose. The garden furniture behind her spoils your shot. The pic does justice to your equipment.

Nice subject, but her hair is burned out and to much room above her head, plus the exif doesn't seem quite right. sorry Jack.

Thanks Jack, the exif is wrong and the hair is deliberately burned out. That is the effect I wanted which is why I shot into the sun.

The composition is not an issue since this was shot to be cropped.

Thanks for your feedback

Thank you Thoramay, you're absolutely correct about the garden furniture (and if it weren't for the shallow depth of field they would have been a much bigger issue) but I just fired off a few snaps really to test the camera and exposure on her face etc...plus she is not always a willing subject and it's always, "hurry up dad, I haven't done my make-up/hair,..." or whatever other thing they need these days before they think they can face the world so this was shot very much on the hoof, goading her to humour me for about 2 minutes! This was literally one of two shots before she got bored and walked off ...but thank you for your nice comments. I appreciate them
