    did you get any other shots?
    the composition of this one is unfortunate for the very reason youre stating.

    also, i know you didnt really ask for C&C, but she looks pained to be there...not really a smile, just kinda clenching the teeth, and standing in a akward pose.

    nice exposure though...looks spot on

    Some spiffy use of the clone tool, but you have a chore in figuring out how to work with the hand and how it is curved around the corner.

    A little pushing, a little healing, a little cloning, add a finger, and your good to go, but I wouldnt use this photo since the fingers still look cut off

    How good are you at Photoshop. You can use the transform/warp tool on the upper part of the wall to stretch it out to the edge of the canvas. For the area around her fingertips. . .simply use make a selection around her fingertips, invert it, then use the clone stamp tool on that area. By working with the selection path, you wont paint over her fingers, and will be able to get in between those nooks and crannies. The good thing, is that the "edge" of the wall is a pretty solid gradient, so it should blend in nicely without having to crop out her hand.

    never mind lol like "c0ps" either way it go the fingers are still going to be cut off...i have a bad habit of worrying so much about the facial area sometimes i dont even check for other parts of the pictures. what about the other photos i posted...are those ok?

    yeah, I would probably avoid using that photo anyway, her face looked almost scared in that shot.
