This is one of my favourites of Amelia, 2 versions of this shot.
v.1 being a tight crop of v.2.

Judging by some of the comments on my last upload (Robyn 2) It was her expression and the look in her eyes that let the shot down and it was interesting to hear your thoughts on this, so thank you for being honest, it's always helpful and I always welcome constructive criticism. My thanks to all who took the time to comment and vote.

I hope you enjoy this one more and thanks for looking in once more.

Fran, this is a wonderful image!

I prefer the 2nd version, simply because the 1st version appears to have significant amounts of artifacting evident; it's particularly concentrated in the top left-hand corner. I'm certainly not trying to be rude, condescending or derogatory about this....it's just that I've had years of experience dealing with this issue. I upload to 13 microstock photography sites world-wide, and in the early days, I battled with this problem in many of my images. My images were frequently rejected by the inspectors on these sites because of this problem. In recent years, I've learned how to overcome the problem. The better the lens, the better the lighting, the less filtering, the less sharpening, and the less cropping you do to an image, all helps to prevents this issue.

As I said, they are both lovely images. Excellent composition!

Congratulations on your award!


Cheers

Phil

Great image, lovely looking informal portrait. I prefer V2 also because of the composition. I find the closeness of V! a little too much.
Probably down to invading my space.
You have some great portraits posted. I don't know why you make these images?, for you, for the sitter or to sell ? So my comments are general. The last one Robyn 2 was for me excellent photography, lighting etc but spoilt for me by her, sulky, unpleasant, "don't mess with me" expression Maybe that is what you wanted to show, and if so you achieved your aim.
They are all excellent pictures, I'm just adding my view point.
Thanks for your continuing comments on my flower pics
regard
Ian
