Hanging Around..

By laurab  
Taken today at Exbury Gardens in the New Forest. This is my daughter Elsa, I asked her for the title name; she called it 'hanging around' as she was swinging on a Wisteria branch. The light was dappled, and I used a flash.

I have had a go at lightening the shot, but much prefer the dark moodier look to it. I thought the brightness removed the mood and skin tones.

I am biased as it is my daughter, but I hope you like the shot.

Comments as always gratefully received.

Lovely shot, I agree works well as is. I do think however the heavy frame detracts somewhat from a great shot.

Very nice shot indeed. Nice moody moment captured!

I uploaded a compromise with some darkness, some light, and an alternative frame, - hope you like it.

Hi Willie, thanks for the mod, I like it.

Thanks for your comment Vinney....and Sandy, no it's not a cast it is a sweat band as apparently it is 'cool' to wear them! But you are right about her being a tomboy LOL
