An interesting idea. Well done for thinking outside the box - almost always a particularly low or high pov will produce a thought-provoking image, because it is an unfamiliar view.

A low pov suggests authority, command. It emphasises the jawline. Generally it works better for men, women tend not to like the camera peering up their nostrils! But it certainly works here.

You used your widest angle too, and the combination is effective, except that there's a lot of wasted space at the top, and possibly at the bottom of the frame. Having achieved a good strong image I would want to experiment with crops to at least get rid of those cables seen against the sky.

The Exif is intriguing. The shutter speed genuinely is showing up as 10 seconds, so this was a night sky and you may not have been aware of the cables. Well done to the lady for holding the pose, although this shows the benefits of having something for her to lean against! The flash has caught particles of dust in the air, I want to get rid of the white dots...

OK I'm off to see what I can do...

Thank you very much Moira, I really love the selection of modifications. Ah I think that's not the white dots but it's stars in the sky hehehe, I took sky space to get that star too and very true I didn't realize if there any cable there. Thank you very much Moira Smile

I think that this would have owrked better with a faster shutter speed, and no attempt to get the stars...

Alternatively, a MUCH longer exposure so that the stars really show up and are recognisable.
