A quick view of young_al's recent activity.

    thanks for the comment and advice

    correct about the lights - not very powerful

    focal length was at 200mm on a 1.6 crop camera

    in the original it was larger there was space above her head and it went about halfway down her chest, not much space to left though.

    i like crop 2 a lot and may reedit to get rid of the red cast as now you mention it i happen to agree,

    thanks for takin time to comment

    did a little mod, quite different to your original, went sepia, diffuse glow around the centre, high pass filter and added a border. not necessarily a spring image anymore. find the expanse of blue quite powerful so darkened the empty areas slightly.

    hope thats ok

    like this a lot, a beautiful subject.

    for my taste though the right arm is very strong in the frame, taking up approx 25% of the shot, done a mod to remove some of that and also to put a little light in the right side of her face as i just see it as slightly too dark.

    hope thats ok.

    Hi Ben, i think its a nice image placing ger in her environment.

    i have done a mod which i feel lifts it slightly, i could be wrong, i added contrast to the image as a whole. selected around the lady and feathered then applied some brightrnin through levels to the background as i felt it added a litlle bit more depth when there was something you you focus on a little behind her. (might be wrong, its happened before!) then pushed the exposure on the whole thing for a little more brightness.

    hope thats ok

    Love the shot, only thing for me is i find the contrast a little too much, could be a personal thing, no else has mentioned it. find it a little hard to look at, the bright bits seem to drag my eye round and appear burnt out????

    i am million miles from good at this stuff though.

    all, many thanks for your comments. all appreciated, i do agree it is too sharpened, my own fault as i sharpened resized, then resharpened and was probably too heavy for the image size.

    i was hoping for comment on the pose and comp and i got both. thanks again
