I think this is great but may i make one suggestion - i think it needs a tighter crop at the top - there is a gap in the leaves that you can still see part of the poster through, if you crop just below that point it looks even better.

Regards

Steve

I think this is a well sen image and you've done pretty well with it.

As Steve says, a tighter crop at the top will sort out where the poster cabn be seen through the leaves. It will also allow you to get rid of the leaves that are lighter in colour and being a bit distracting.

Good spot.

Well seen, a very clever idea, and I like the eyes looking up at the leaves.

I like the idea. However, I agree a tighter crop may improve the image. I also note that there appears to be come kind of reflection just below the eye - is this you? Or is it just because of the lighting?

Thank for your suggestion, make me realize how cropping is important.

just thought i'd play a little with it to make it just a bit more abstract Smile some slight exposure modifications, a little boost in contrast, to make the portrait look a bit more realSmile

a nice shot and very well observedSmile
