Works because of the light catching the curve of the brim of the hat, that dark shadow down the back of her neck! An intriguing positive/negative effect.

If she thinks that hat is going to protect anything apart from her face from harmful UV, I fear she is deluding herself. Have a quiet word with her, Richard, talk some sense into her.

This is superb too Richard. Preferred yesterdays though. I think it had more mystery and more beautiful shades of grey and very artistic. This is more fitting with your title though and seems perfect for a fashion magazine. And do love this too.......Sandy

Personally I prefer this one compared to your last post. Richard was it your intention to loose detail in her shoulders to create a true graphic look?

A fantastic portfolio altogether - something to take as a reference... Smile
