One of the young bridesmaids at my niece's wedding last year. She was incredibly nervous, and so I asked her to look away from me and out of the window into the distance. This is quite heavily cropped from the original (which was portrait and showed probably three-quarter body). I think I've over-processed it but I wanted to create a high-key image and was struck by the intensity of her gaze. I know the closest eye isn't the sharpest, but unfortunately the original point of focus wasn't in the right place. So it's a bit of a bodge in some ways, but technically dodgy or not, I still love the expression on her face. My first upload in way too long, so be gentle!!
