    Sweet Jim. I might have lowered the highlights a little in the back though

    Thanks David. I totally agree. I recently purchased both Lightroom and Elements, but haven't learned how to do very much with either. I've been to a couple Monday meetings for Lightroom and last night's first meeting for Elements, but so far we've mostly just talked about organizing our photos.

    It will take you to another level. I would advise just start with LR basics. Read through Scott Kelby's book is probably the best way to get into it. All kinds of stuff on Youtube

    Nice capture Jim. While I agree with the fact that the background being a bit bright, you managed a good exposure on the young lady and captured her earnestness. She appears to be really into her presentation.

    Thanks Frank. All the volunteers we met at the sanctuary appeared to be happy campers.

    Jim, nice job on the skin tones, good depth of field and focus. You will get the hang of Lightroom quickly, we have a lot of talented user around here.
