Window looks off kilter, - but may jusy be falling down.

Can do with a crop, and a little more contrast; I would also tone down highlights to improve the detail on her dress.

All done in the mod, - and straightened slightly.

I did try the crop but thought it weakended the images so what you see is more or less what I took. The location is extremely derelict and bordering on the dangerous.

Nice image for me, but spoiled by the blue in the background. It draws my eye as the only vibrant colour in the frame. Otherwise, the brighter image is better IMO, and a nice contrast between beauty and ugliness.

I prefer V2 though possibly with a bit more contrast. Its a shame about the window in the background, without that I think this would have been a cracking image.

I like V2 myself - good composition I do like the greenery surrounding the window
I’ve just looked again at both versions but cant agree with any improvement. It now looks like a ‘nice’ traditional picture and it has lost the dirty dismal and very unattractive building which, in the original, contrasts with an attractive girl in a lovely delicate white dress. Like it or like it not, that is exactly how the building looks.

Here's Onabella's (the model) thoughts: - The nails stand out. The image looks to fake in my opinion.
