The wonderful site i heart faces has a linky today where the photographers will examine a photo you've taken (if you are an amateur), and give suggestions and constructive criticism.
I'm posting this one of Shark Boy--
(ZOMG he's cute!) (And he cut his own bangs! *doh*)
This photo was very light all around him and on his face (very angelic!) and the only edit I've done in the version pictured here is pull the shadow slider over about a third of the way to darken up his face a bit. This was done in Picasa3.
I'm wondering what (if) anything could make this shot, which I love, better. (I also use Picnik, and I have Elements 7 but I've not really learned how to use it yet.) And what aperture or shutter speed could I have used to improve the exposure without post-processing?
Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi

Thank you i heart faces!
