Hi Louise,

As Frank has said, the composition here's not the best.
However, at least your (fairly willing!) model is looking at you and not out of the shot.
I think this would have worked better if you'd got down lower to be more level with his head and upper body when you took the shot. You've missed half of his feet anyway so mising the rest wouldn't really matter!
Also, there's a lot of noise in there which I've removed in my mod using "Noiseware Comunity Edition". (Free and very effective). I've also tweaked it using levels, curves and contrast in CS5.
I've USMed fairly strongly too.

Hope all that helps.

Bren.

Sadly, the site's decided to go t**s up for some reason and won't allow me to post my mod. I'll try later.
