Hi Jess,

For me, this shot doesn't work due to a number of points.

1) The crop is quite bizarre. Ciara's head & hands are too close to the frame, at least in my opion. Also, the positioning of her hands looks strange.

2) The background is quite distracting. This could be avoided by using a larger aperture and therefore having less dof.

3) The lens flare across the image is strange - in some cases I feel it adds to the shot, but I don't think this is the case with this shot, unfortunately.

Hope this helps,

S

Thank you for your points!
I loved it, but then wondered why more people didn't agree (not that I feel everyone should love my work, hands down, but you see what I mean) Now I realize why!

Well jess, I love this peice, but I would have like to have seen the crop slightly bigger, but I think the lense flare and the pose gives the peice a real feeling for me.

It is technically flawed, yes, but do all shots have to fit to conformity? I think Jess is part of a new generation of photographers that are going to blow the whole thing wide open. Smile
