    Its a good portrait, keep up the good work. Its ok to post portraits you have taken in this thread imo- As long as there are no other dedicated threads.

    She's a lovely girl :)
    As a portrait it could be better. Too many distractions, with portraits the rule is to not have those, get as close as you can. Lighting is a problem in a car of course.

    I've cropped it and cleaned it up a bit.

    This is as good as it gets I think :)

    True, but there's no reason why people shouldn't post nice portraits. It's here to learn from each other, how to make better photos, not random "clicks"

    What he says :D

    That's nice, I see you have increased the structure and sharpness, while I would have preferred a softer smoothening effect here..It looks more portrait like now.
    Sometimes photos benefit from a good framing, here her 'peeking smile from a car seat' look is somewhat less prominent on the cropped image.
    This looks like an accidental shot,(no pun here) hey next time make it 'look accidental' while it actually should be a carefully framed shot.

    Photos shot using One plus 5 in good natural lighting is very detailed and clear, only when there is too much exposure or too little we get to notice the flaws.
    I shot this in portrait mode, only basic edits like brightness, contrast and sharpness were done.

    Yes, that's what he's saying, and he's living proof too.

    And good photographer can make great shots with a crap camera.

    And a bad photographer won't make good photos, even on expensive equipment.

    Read this thread, especially the first post, it has some great advice on how to make portraits.

    I bet you'll make some great pics, you'll see many people want to help you out.

    Go out, find great subjects, take different shots with different settings, experiment. Post your best photo (Do not use the app for that) in the appropriate thread, and ask for advice.

    If you know a little Photoshop you can remove that yellow plastic bag, love the level of detail in his hair.

    I know the basics, I did not want to tinker with the photos since it was for the competition, I'll try to do the same later and show you guys.
