Harsh light on leg
Sep 1, 2009

I noticed this photo that Annie Leibovitz took has harsh light on the woman's leg.

To me, this is a bit odd that one has such mixed lighting of shadow and bright sunlight on the body, especially the skin. With my current understanding and knowledge, I would have used a sun diffuser to block out the harsh light, moved the couple into complete shade or post-processed that harsh light away, but not leave it like it is.

What do all of you think, is this okay or what would you do?
