maybe you'll think i'm being way too anal about it, and maybe i am, but i'm thinking the image would have much more impact if the the hat was lower on her head, i.e., the brim of the hat reaching the top of the shades, kind of cocked, with (maybe) just a bit of the right eye peaking out above the shades. as it is, the hat high on her head sort of takes some of the mystery out of the shot.
Thanks for the feedback jimmy! I hear what you are saying about the placement of the hat.
p.s. is that really the right kind of hat? is it a 50s marlon brando "Wild Ones" hat? or is it a leather Greek fisherman's hat? I'm not sure.
Well, I was having a hard time finding the hat. So, I decided to google "biker hat". Low and behold! There is a web site dedicated to biker hats and there it was right on the main page! It looked just like what I remember Marlon Brando wore in the movie.
I think if it were a Greek fishermans hat, it would probably have some kind of rope across the brim or be embroidered with a ships wheel or both!
