I'd probably crop in tighter and back off those adjustments, except raise shadows more and pull down whites.

Any white subject in full sun is a tough order.

Thanks for the feedback! I shot this with the intention of cropping 2.35:1 which is the cinescope anamorphic ratio of film. Coming from a theatrical film background, I like this ratio because it almost feels like a still from a feature film. I also use 16:9 a lot. I guess it's my own little way of inserting some of my own personal touches to my photos.

I've corrected as much as the CA as I could and fixed the reflection. I'll probably upload it tonight. As far as the adjustments, I'm not going for realism in this shot. It's what I saw in the moment and a vision of what I remember that I want to portray, like a hyper-reality. Some call it overdone processing. I'm sure there is a happy medium that I might find one day.
