Pre-Raphelite Sue

By johnriley1uk  
This image started life many years ago as a colour slide and as I recall it is a straight shot using a painting as a background. I scanned the original and then did some more work on it in Photoshop and I rather liked the end result, even the tight crop, which I realise may bend a few "rules".....

I see a thin line of milky white at the base of the frame.

Thought to suggest cropping it. And then going higher. Part of the lip is missing but the sitter still smiles. She must be taking joy from teasing you. What if you tease the viewer? Why not cropping higher, erasing the smile making viewers wondering? So I took a straight line from the base of the second tree from the left. And to honour the cheeky pop up visitor I would call it "Sorry Sue".

A difficult one to comment on as it breaks all the supposed rules of composition. However, it has a certain allure because it does not conform. It is good to be different from the rest! The tones applied to have given it an "olde-worlde" look to it.

I love the eye contact.
