    Uuuuummmm, how about adjusting the exposure compensation? The sky is bright, the foreground is dark because of the shadow. Which condition should she have exposed for? How about metering (maybe spot metering the tree would have been better)? PS - great idea create this album Remy.

    The contrast is reduced because the light from the sun is bouncing around the lens barrel and clouding the lens elements. A Neutral Gradient Filter can help or moving to the side to eliminate the dramatic angle of light.

    Thanks Guys! I will certainly invest in a filter - and retry!

    There is no way most digital cameras can capture the dynamic range necessary to make that a good photo. To make it suitable, I would duck down so the tree blocks the direct sunlight flare and then meter off the sunlit grass under the tree with 1/2 stop exposure compensation added. Aiming a hand-held reflector at the person in the photo for fill light would also add a nice touch but that is kind of hard to do on the fly.

    Me? I would try boosting the aperture to 22, keeping the shutterspeed about 125s and Iso200 or 400. This will create a star affect from the sun.
