Did a shoot yesterday with Liv. Found some bluebells so...I just couldn't help myself. I wanted a slightly darker look to this so yes, it's been through PS. While I was working on this I decided to flip it. I think it's interesting how a photo works differently when you do that...

ISO 200 and 1/350th at f2.8

Thanks for taking a look. Have a lovely evening and drink sensibly Grin

Thank you, Dave. Actually, Liv found this one not far from where she lives Smile

A square crop might work, but I like it how it is - a good use or the rule of thirds. This image would also work if Liv was looking into the camera. Although this has a dreamy feeling to it. Nice image.

Thank you, Graham. Liv tends to just do her own thing. She does look at the camera sometimes but often she's absorbed in doing something. Here she is planting some feathers (?) we had just seen a car clip off a pheasant Smile

very nice, and the darker presentation works well.

The rotation is an interesting question, - I assume from many topics Ive read that left to right is a more "pleasant" and normal flow, - but I find that the one you see first is the one you consider "normal" and the second seems odd, - just mu experience.

Square would work also.

Thank you, Mark Smile

Thank you, Di. I'll try a square crop Wink

Thank you, Lisa Smile

Thank you, Challice Smile

Thank you, W. That about the one you see first being 'normal' is interesting because I find I'm prefering No. 2 (the original direction). Left to right is probably the more pleasant as a rule because we (in the west) read from left to right. Unless I make a conscious decision to do otherwise, I usually place my subject on the right. I suspect that has something to do with being right eye dominant Smile
