Well done sharpedge, good use of fill flash. The skin tone is much better, her eyes come alive and gives a much better connection with the viewer. Also the small catch lights in here eyes give the picture a real sparkle. A great pass for you this time.

Heres my first attempt at No6 - Dow Crag in the lake district on Sunday - extreme wind trying to blow me off, so not many shots ;)
You may also like to comment on the flash shot not attempting to go with the Horizon - Is this a No No ?
2nd shot is the 'no flash' comparison (Like you couldnt tell )

Dudger, I think it's a pass because the person became very recognisable instead of a silhouette. However I feel the "base exposure" is also more on the fill-flash shot as the background is significantly lighter than the "unfilled" shot and even at the border of overexposure. This might be intentional but it's certainly an effect you want to watch carefully as you use the technique in the future.

Tilted horizons are no criteria for this assignment, should make you happy I think

Thanks for that pegelli - I was only in control of it being F11 (I cant seem to get to grips with wider focus and a foreground person being sharp) - it would have been nice to experiment and go fully manual -but funnily enough the angle you see is the angle of me leaning into the wind, which was freezing me up somewhat - seems im fated to only manage the most basic of passes with technically dodgy shots in other areas - oh well we all have to start somewhere

I think that's a pass godsakes. Do you have a similar shot w/o the fill flash as comparison? Might be interesting to see.

Btw, I like how the even stronger backlight provided a contour at the the right side of her hair and face against the dark rocks in the background.

without flash i was getting glare washing out the colours but the difference in exposure isn't quite as night and day as i would have expected

goldsmid, excellent example, the flash worked very well without overpowering so a pass with flying colors.

Btw, also a high score on the cute-o-meter, lovely smile.

Had to use fill flash here to bring out the rock formations.

outback 88, great, wouldn't have noticed it as a fill-flash shot, but can imagine it was quite essential. It's a pass. Do you have a version w/o the fill flash to show us the difference (not needed for the pass, just to satisfy my curiousity)

Sorry Pegelli, l was on a very steep unstable sand bank/dune so l risked the flash as l thought without it the rocks would be too dark, in other words l wasn't hanging around, l have to go back there soon l saw a nice snake l want to photograph, if he's still there?

So l will get a flashless shot of the above.
