A nice portrait image, Sophi! Has a 'grunge' feel about it! Nice tones, light and composition!

Hi sophis

Great shot and love the idea. I have uploaded a mod which I have tried to take the idea a little futher.
Hope you like it.

Oh yes, - this is really good. Youre delving into your creative abilities here with this, and it works. Lovely treatment.

I have a couple of ideas, First is just on composition, where you could crop space from the bottom to place her eyes on a third; next are just variants of contrast and darkness, the last mod having a sepia overlay. I arrived at V1 by doing a severe Dragan layer, and merging it with the original by using opacity. I enhanced the eyes a little, and reduced the halo effect.

there's just loads you can do in this line of images

heres a link to some really gorgeous and free backgrounds that you can use for these type of images, - they can make a huge difference:

Keep going in this direction,

Hope you find this useful as always,

A lovely image, great expression captured. Like the grungy b/g. That bit of extra light on her face is lovely............Sandy
