Glad you like it, wasn't sure wether to upload a 'square on' colour shot or this one...

I like this, its quite different. The angle works for me.

When I download it, I find Im tempted to make the window and the frame parallel, which Ive done in mod1. I would like to see more detail in her face, with highlights toned down a little. I sharpened her face a little too, and since the cap is so sharp and high contrast, I softened it very slightly to mae it less prominent tonally.

Mod2 is a 10 X 8 crop which removes the top, - has the same adjustments. I like both, but if you need to crop for printing, crop the top. Mod3 is a duotone treatment I thought might work.


Hope this helps,


regards


Willie

Right on Willie! While we're at it, why not erase the offending white spot in the bottom right hand of the image! Just a small detail. Paul Wink

I like this as a black and white and seeing the other mods made I think it definately works. For me a square crop just brings the subject into the forefront and removes any distractions away from the face of a very nice young lady.

Thanks for the comments guy's, all taken on board Smile I like the square crop Eric, I think that the absence of the elbow also reduces distraction.
