Difficult Lighting Situation

Just about impossible not to have blown out highlight areas + detail in shadow areas when subject was backlit by strong rising early morning sun...but I was fascinated by the translucent ears and hairs, lit by the sun. I exposed for detail in the face, knowing what the outcome would be because the preview you get in the EVF so acurately gives you a representation of the final image...not so with the Sony DSC F717 which shows pictures much lighter than they actually are! I really trust the EVF of the 2100. White balance was cloudy because I forgot to change it...but I took out excess yellow with a Hue adjustment....and then I tried to replace the background.

May have been difficult lighting, but it turned out admirably! I love the lit up ears and the up-close-ness of this portrait, sort of "in your face," so to speak. Helen
