Take a breath

By trivets12  
This wedding took place on a particularly hot day, and in the midday sun. Becky had become really overheated and flustered so she sat down here just for a break.
I took this shot of her and asked her to look towards the window to give more light to her face. I love the shot and so does she, but my own critique raises the following:
I should have removed the cushions under her right arm.
I should have ensure her feet weren't resting on the train.
I wish I had included more of the room above her OR should I crop in tighter? Can't quite decide on that one.
Comments welcomed,

Lovely shot with great lighting.
Bit small to see much detail, but the cushions look fine to me. The left side of the pic looks a bit messy though, but that may be just because of the black bg?

I do not think the cushion is under the arm is a problem however I do find the cushion near the head a bit distracting, also the cloth coming in to the picture on the right hand side i would remove as for the feet i can't really see very well.
But all said & done you have captured a wonderful image with good tones.

It's all very well to say these things in hindsight when you have the luxury of time looking at your shotsSmile Lovely shot, a tad small to see any real detail. I think I would have cropped the lhs a bit just to get rid of the curtain and maybe have positioned myself slightly higher on a small ladder to see a bit more down onto the dress but apart from that, nicely doneSmile

Bet she loved this shot, though. So no need to be 'glass half empty' about it.
I love it!
