CommentHad this image for a while and struggled with it a bit. I like the background and pose but the whites seem blown to me and lack detail. I have used the highlights slider in LR and the adjustment brush to slightly darken the exposure of the whites but I don't think this has really worked. Could it be that I am a bit off in the focus point or the shutter speed was too low?
