I'm not sure here. The attempt at something different is superb, but has it worked? There are two sharp areas, and these have some separation - the eye and the upper lip. I think I would prefer more eye showing and less out of focus area with a crop from the right to improve balance.

Quality is A1.

Hi Louise, - Ive looked at this a couple of times since yesterday, unsure about whether I liked it or not.

What I do like is the amazing performance of the lens, and the very clear message the shot is conveying, using very little. Technically its great, and the mono is contrasty with excellent sharpness.

I played with a number of variation of compositions, and wished there was more on the left to work with, but I can see the reason its not there. So I would crop into a conventional 8 X 110 taling space from the top, as well and the right, - loaded mod.



Regards


Willie
