Yosemite valley selfie plus one
2

OK, I'm summoning some courage to post this. I'd like to get better at this sort of shot, so feedback would be appreciated.

This is my wife and I, shot with a self timer and OCF (Godox 850). I'm OK with the color, but the two of us look sort of pasted on to the scene. (I swear, we really were standing by the river in our formal wear -- we were on our way to the Bracebridge Dinner )

I didn't use any sort of modifier, just a bare flash.  Some Lightroom and PS fiddling was done, including a bit of the old "Orton Effect."

Any suggestions for improvement (other than "get younger models") are welcome.

PS: I still had my trail shoes on, but my wife's dress covered her boots.
