Great shot of her face, but unfortunately image spoilt by the white flares

Indeed this had the potential to be a great image but the flares spoil it for me too, however do see what you mean regards the eyes ! Thanks for sharing Colin

I like the flare personally but would have prefered the bright area to be more behind her head. tough shot to do so well done.

I actually think the flare & bokeh are nice - but if only it's a lil' less dominant Smile

Like the models pose, however agree with the others that the flare behind her head distracts your attention from her face.
Good effort.
Regards Richard.

Well what other peeps here are looking as as imperfections I see as added artistry and difference. Therefore I love the flares (they add a very magical touch) and everything else as is. I knew as soon as I saw the thumb I was gonna love the large.
I know peeps see things in their own ways but why do some always have to have rules/technical perfection. Long may you give it large and stand outside the box!
Thanks 4 the share Smile ...Click!

Shawry's nailed it for me. I've you'd placed the sun(?) behind her so that it had created a symmetrical halo around her head I think it would be less distracting than it being off-centre. I really like the flare though and the reflector's worked very well in creating impact in the eyes.

Edit: You've got a fascinating portfolio. Off to take a more thorough look...

I love the flare to the right, perfect positioning

and natural bokeh? always a winner for me too
