This image was taken on November 20th at 4:57pm. It was an unseasonable cold day, the skies were mostly clear and sunny.

Using a single focus point, I focused on her right eye with an aperture of f/2.8. Because there was only one person in the photo, I shot wide open with my favorite lens for the shallow depth of field.

Below is the original and edited versions, color and light adjustments were accomplished in Lightroom.
