Almost like a reunion.
Very nice work - not at all the usual portrait. While I know a lot of folks complain about cropping limbs and hands appearing from nowhere, my screen is lower resoltuion than yours, and I get a crop at about the edge of her left-hand cuff, and a bit lower on top. And it's a very nice image - cutting out a lot of the sweater - which is mid-tone, kind of busy, and - IMO - not really contributing much.
Thanks for sharing.
