I was really thinking that I liked the lighting on this picture of Kate.
Open shade is such nice soft light. But the problem is that her eyes are too dark. You can barely see the whites. And they ought to be white, not dark gray. And you can't even tell the color of her eyes.
That's one of the reasons for close-to-the-axis fill-flash, even in a situation like this, where the light is nice. The idea is to spark up those eyes just a little.
Another thing I've learned too late.
