19 October. "Cropping Portraits Variants"

By GeorgeRusky
Good Afternoon
Thank you very much for your warm welcome to my latest upload.

For those who read descriptions.

Here is the first series of images, taken at a Autoshow last week, that can give you some ideas for cropping your photos.

Each uploaded photo will be followed by the same image cropped differently.

The first version is my preference.

Have a great Sunday afternoon and the next week.

Yours faithfully
PS: If there is anything else I can do for you, let me now.

I prefer #1. Wonder if she needs any help getting the paint off.

Super capture

So-- aside from the great smile, I think V2 is the better choice-- perhaps it is the blue balloon in the rh corner that distracts a bit???

Paint, I saw it as a very fine body suit---

Love the sympathetic colors!

D'you know what George? All your other photos of smiling women are so charming, open and relaxed. Well here's a young lady who earns her living by taking her shirt off in public and that isn't a happy smile (it's not necessarily sad either). Very telling.

Nice tats! Also, I agree that the crop is the best of the three.
I'm not on EPZ as much as before, but must go back and look at the other images, and your cropping suggestions. Thanks Smile

Myself, I'd want to get her away from that distracting (and distracted: how can they not look at her?) background, and into a studio.

But that smile...

I agree, the 1st vers. is the best, vers.2. is a close 2nd, but vers.3 has too much distracting the eye.

Now this is different George..interesting to have the three versions too. I prefer version 1 and agree with Brian about the others. A brave lady..don't think I would do it ..certainly not now ! Smile

Well George, all I can say is your fellow countrymen sure love cars, here's a young lady standing naked, and the chap in V3 is studying the car!!! Agree with you that V1 is best, hadn't even noticed the balloon that others wish removed Smile
