Steve if I may be so bold as to say, I'm not sure
the titles of these images match the expression.
Power and Pedal was a strong image but as I said it didn't convey Power to me.
For Thinking I'd have thought her hand would needed to have been on her forehead
and eyes closed?
This one looks more like 'Startled'.
Not sure about the oof bit at right and empty space above the model?
Was there some 'thinking' behind that?
Sorry don't mean to be a damp squib but I'd reconsider the titles.
The Power and Pedal must have left an impression as I thought about it after my computer was switched off!

Take your point in titles...I'm not good at titles. However so far as the posing and empty space was concerned - it was deliberate to convey a sense of space and context. Steve

Hi Kate, I have uploaded a version (actually the worng image- I have several and the one I adapted is not crtically sharp but it is of the same subject and angle so it serves the purpose) This one is cropped hard to remove the oof area you refer to , do you think it works? personally ( and it could be that this is just taste)I see it as less impactful, but it would be interesting to hear others views. ( and thanks Kate for making your views known it was appreciated.)

Steve

I prefer the cropped version Steve.
It probably is my taste which tends to be more traditional - I wish I were more arty!
I wish other people had commented for your sake as well as mine.
You don't need to pay any heed to me. I just say what I honestly think.
