Glad you like it, wasn't sure wether to upload a 'square on' colour shot or this one...

I like this, its quite different. The angle works for me.

When I download it, I find Im tempted to make the window and the frame parallel, which Ive done in mod1. I would like to see more detail in her face, with highlights toned down a little. I sharpened her face a little too, and since the cap is so sharp and high contrast, I softened it very slightly to mae it less prominent tonally.

Mod2 is a 10 X 8 crop which removes the top, - has the same adjustments. I like both, but if you need to crop for printing, crop the top. Mod3 is a duotone treatment I thought might work.

Hope this helps,

Right on Willie! While we're at it, why not erase the offending white spot in the bottom right hand of the image! Just a small detail. Paul Wink

I noticed that Paul, but didnt find it intrusive, - but its easily removed.

I like this as a black and white and seeing the other mods made I think it definately works. For me a square crop just brings the subject into the forefront and removes any distractions away from the face of a very nice young lady.

Thanks for the comments guy's, all taken on board Smile I like the square crop Eric, I think that the absence of the elbow also reduces distraction.
