Wonder

By gsxr400
This is an old photo that I wasn't happy with at the time but revisited recently to have another go at the editing. This time I really like the photo.

Also this was a chance to try out my new 60mm prime lens.

Would love to hear what you think.

Hi Andrew - I like it Smile Just had a look in your PF, and can't see any original version of it so I can't compare it to anything. I'm assuming you've never uploaded it here?
Anyhow, I like th way you've processed it. It's soft and dreamy and wistful, but at the same time there's an element of tension, somehow ... She looks nervous, but it could be anticipation, like she's waiting for a rendevous (particularly when coupled with the twisting of the hair strands).

I like the no eye contact thing too - the viewer becomes a spectator, and because her eyes are off in the direction of that misty lightness behind her it leaves me wondering what's going on, which is good.

Thanks Tanya I didn't like the original so I didn't upload it, but now I think it is worth going up on here. Thanks for the critique you mentioned everything we were going for in this image.
