    another mediocre portrait from the old studio... You are really going to hate that I bought a new faster computer and scanner.[​IMG]

    I know I always say the image speaks for itself and this one does, but note the cast aside teddy bear... that wasn't an accident.

    I really like it, mysteryscribe, and it does indeed speak for itself, at least to me.

    That bear works beautifully, especially with the just-slightly-too-little-and-girlish seeming chair and the level from which the picture was taken. The only thing that distracts my eyes a little from the subject is the empty space above her head. I'd crop the top a *hint* tighter. Just a hint. But that may well be just me. I'm kind of peculiar when it comes to cropping.

    Another thing I really like about it is the painting style.

    Does it have a title? It looks deserving of a title, in my opinion.

    It's great, I really like it. And it should have a title.

    Funny you should mention crop. I have been trying this morning to find a good standard crop Everything cuts her feet if I go standard. But you are right the top is too empty.

    I wish i had shot a little more of the bear to give e room to crop more. I have that old studio mindset has to fit in a standard frame thinking. I think what i should to is crop the top then put the whole thing on a white sheet that will allow me to display it with a gallery matt.

    ps.. shoot enough you are bound to get lucky....NO title you give it on for me.
