Sometimes It All Comes Together!

Tyler & Emily
I've been busy this month with family weddings and all the excitement that goes with these wonderful events.  This past weekend was my son Tyler and his fiancee Emily's turn for engagement photos.   We took a ton of photos in numerous locations and ended up with lots that I love, but sometimes it all comes together perfectly for one that stands out above the rest.  This one is my favorite.  I love the colors, the composition and especially the background and setting that are so complimentary.  Love the pop of the color in the poppies that match Emily's blouse, love the out of focus background that matches Tyler's shirt (it's sagebrush), love the 'lacy' foliage and love the off camera lighting.  This was taken at dusk, 1/60 sec, f4.5, off camera flash on manual.  (The only thing that is irritating, is often when I upload to blogger it washes out my photos.  When I resized for the WEB I had to really reduce the exposure and even doing that, this photo does not have nearly the pop that the high resolution original has.  Does anyone else have this problem?)
