Suppose its personal but good as it is i am not too happy at such close cropping. To me you need to give the subject more
space, `modern` or not but much prefer to see a full image not a `flattened` head....or is that just the way the pic is shown on this page ?
No, I meant it to be as you see it. Just an aesthetic choice I guess, I like it this way as it concentrates on the model's face. Don't know if it's modern though.
Yes, you are probably right......yet am i out of step when asking to see full head, the `flattening` of hair seems wrong, it has the affect of wanting more rather than concentrating of the most important needs in a portrait - good eyes ! Now to me the eyes are always the most important factor in portraits even if the rest of the pic is out of focus. Now you might say i have `broken my own rules !` Not so, for this pic is a full portrait (eyes are good but the `flattend head` draws the attention ) Am i being silly to suggest that if you want to draw attention to the eyes them get even closer, here there is `almost` a full face portrait so it - to me at least - calls for a devided view ! Sorry, must be me !
Well, it is you. It's also me, in that I think this kind of thing is a question of personal taste. Neither is right or wrong.
Thanks for the remarks anyway, they are interesting and mae me think. I might try a closer crop.
Thankyou for being honest and not ignoring my thoughts........i suppose we must leave the question
to other viewers. Yet at least it has given you the hint that a closer crop may be worth trying.
