A few weeks ago I took my youngest daughter out for some practice.  I am trying new things with my photography and I am working had to get stronger at shooting in manual mode.

We were getting ready to head home after spending some time trying to figure out some lighting in a wooded area.  The sun was going down and it looked beautiful so I pulled the car over and talked her into laying on the ground which I am sure was not very comfortable.

I absolutely love how this photo came out!  The only editing I did was to smooth her face a little,  I didn’t touch anything else.

Update: On Jamie’s suggestion I went in to Gimp and just adjusted the white balance.  This second image is definitely warmer and just full of the golden tones from the sunset.
