I like them, but I do.

There has been a lot of discussion on rules, and breaking rules here lately, so I thought I would post these two images for your comments.
It seems to me that the composition is all wrong, but I still like them and I'm not sure why.

I would love to hear your comments. Be as vicious as you like......I have a thick skin and a sense of humour to protect me! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I like the first one. I see layers of curves. The top of the hat, the hat band, the brim, her mower lip, her jaw, the necklace coming around her neck, and the curve of her shoulder coming down to her collarbone. I also like the breaking of those curves by her nose, the earrings, and the point of the necklace. I think it is a strong image with a lot of mystery.

Cheers!
Glenn K.

I really like #1; very well done. #2 has a bunch of lines which seem to converge at her neck, which really isn't the focal point.

the crop doesn't really work for me in #1. i think i would recommend cropping it in a way that cut into the top of the hat a bit.

#2 the angle is almost there, but i think it would be more effective had you shot it without that bit of nose being revealed, i.e., a slightly higher angle that would have just barely excluded the nose, but leaving the lips remaining in the shot.

Thanks for the comments.
The great thing about this forum from an amateur's perspective is the opportunity to find out what other viewers think. The normal comments from family and friends being less than objective.

I guess as a professional you get all the feedback you need by checking your bank account, but that always seemed a bit drastic to me. I think I'll stick with Garage Glamour feedback! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks again!

Thanks Gus.

It was interesting to hear the different preferences of you and Brian (BGPHOTO).

I guess it just proves that it all comes down to how each of us sees things.

Personally there are still some things about each picture that I do not particularly like, but I don't know that I have a preference for either.

Thanks for the comments Glenn.

Interesting discussion of the first image. I guess it was the repeating curves of the hat, her jawline and the jewellery that first drew me to the composition, albeit subconsciously.
