238/365 Alternate - California Girl, Take Three

I set out today to try to get some portraits of the kids with that low-contrast, blown-highlights, golden-toned "California Sun" look, with varying degrees of success (guess I should have read up on it a bit rather than just winging it.)

 

Of everything I shot, I think this illustrates the effect I was going for the best, although I don't like the lens flare directly in her hair (which I was able to tone down a bit from its original neon green color.) Like the other shot of Thing Two, it's a bit soft from a slow-ish shutter.

 

Nikon D7000 w/Nikkor 18-200mm @ 62mm, 1/30s @ ƒ/4.8 -1.0ev, ISO200. Color processing in Aperture.
