Here is a raw image, has only been resized to fit this forum. I really like the picture and love her eyes. I am wondering what you guys would do as far as cropping the image if anything. For some reason I don't think the framing of her is quite right.

Here is the resized image, I have it at 4 megapixels so losing any detail is not a concern with cropping it. Is there anything else you would do to it? I love her freckles so I don't want to blur her skin at all.

Taken at a local park, gold reflector and camera.

Whenever possible, I try to compose using the "rule of thirds". Take the rectangle of the image.. divide it into thirds both vertically and horizontally. Where those thirds intersect (should be four points inside th eimage) are where the viewer's eyes will spend the most time looking for major points of interest. I'm not sure you can really do that with this image, though, now.

In this case, the tree is distracting I'd crop to the left of it... maybe tighten the crop on the right side (her right side) of her face so that I'm seeing just hair, face, right hand, and a bit of the T-shirt on the right shoulder.

Here is my humble opinion on the croping.

softened the background and skin just a bit, freckels are still very visable.

regards
Ron

Very nice picture. Nice model. The recrop from ROn is very good. The only thing that distract me is the logo on her left arm. I don't know the value of it in this specific shot (commercial?) but if not, you could try to remove it.

Dammit, I did it again. I thought I put in the image URL but I got the page again. If somebody sees this and corrects it please show me the URL in your message?

Well, I see one extra typo in there maybe that's it. Try again. [image]http://pilles.smugmug.com/gallery/223712/6/12456987[/image]

I am in agreement that the tree and the logo detract. I have found that sometimes failure to crop in the viewfinder or to leave a lot of frame cannot be solved later. I do it often. I have also found that breaking rules and concepts can work. I kinda like this.



But then again it's just my opinion.
