This image was taken on January 23rd at 2:36pm.

My friend Hannah was taking the photo and large bank of windows was behind her. Using a single focus point, she focused on one of our faces with an aperture of f/4.0.  We selected this aperture to make sure that everyone was in focus.

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