Nice shot. Nice model. Crtique:- arm going out of frame on left; distracting detail top left corner.

Portraiture isn't something I know much about but, to me, the crop of your mod is much more effective. The position of her arm looks a bit uncomfortable in the first version and the stonework in the top left is quite distracting.

Hi Cee Cee ~ Don't do that!
The Mod is very good and improved technically but the Original is your vision and nobody elses!
When asking for comments ~ Like most advice, it's advice which you can digest and discard that which you do not wish to use and utilise the rest for future projects...
Removed an Image from this site earlier this month for pressure from a few members for it did not sit comfortably with their beliefs ~ This is probably the worst decision I have made on this site and I regret it very much, for an individuals work is just that and if people are not happy then switch Off.
Inglemann has been very helpful and precise but sometimes follow your nose and convictions thats what sets us apart from the Norm!
On a lighter note ~ I thought the image and Model were very nicely relaxed and had a natural appeal about it so really think about taking advice as your guide to better working practice?

The mod is very necessary but, correct me if I'm wrong, my impression here is that she is actually posing for someone else and you have shot from the side.

Much prefer eye contact for this.

HI Guys thanks for the advice, I wasn't at all miffed about the critique originally given, I just thought that an arm choped off was not a good look upon retrospect! I do value the critique and not at all annoyed. I'm very grateful infact and it's helped me look out for important things that I didn't notice before, I am learning all the time!

I do have eye contact photos, I will upload another shrotly so you can see! I just chose this one to start wtih as I thought it had a nice advertorial feel about it!

Look forward to your other comments and appreciate your friendly words. Thank you.

If the photo is for you, keep the original; if for a wider audience, then your mod (it's still yours!) is better technically. I don't think the unmodded background tells us much and the gap between arm and body doesn't help the composition.
