I prefer number 2... The letterbox crop just works somehow. I think it benefits from a little bit of negative space.

i love both, but the sweep of the fabric on V2 makes a better comp i think

beautiful jo

Yeah it is the landscape version for me too.

Excellent image Jo. I would be tempted to slightly enhance the catchlight in your right eye, its a little lifeless as it stands. The overall comp and feel of the image is top drawer.

Sorry it doesn't really work for me.
The cloth is bright and fun with a bow, but you seem to me look really sad. For me for this to work I would need a stronger narrative.
Because the cloth is not a normal piece of clothing and it goes right up to your head( so no neck showing), and the darkness on the left side. I get this strange feeling that your head is disconnected from the body, like its been stuck on. I'm finding this a bit disconcerting.
Great exposure, and I'm enjoying the colour palette.

Really nicely worked.
Great work Mum, works really well for me. Both versions are fab, perhaps at a push I'd say V2 but as I say, both are great =] x

Oh boy...this is the toughest fight ever for choice. I looked at V1 and fell for it immediately. Then I looked at V2 and went WHOA.

V1 would be perfect for a framed large print. V2 would be perfect for an exhibition poster of your works.

If threatened with a wobbly icepick and a large bag of frozen peas, V2 would win out with me.

Either way, the thumbnail blew me away and the full image even more so.


I disagree with Martin (stix). I think this totally works. It sighs so fully of romance...that was not to be.

To me, anyway.

I think this works well, v2 gets my vote, almost cinematic (but maybe that is down to presentation. I like the deep shadows.

Very feminine .... prefer the crop in V2 but preferably without such chunky borders.
