    Nice shot, beautiful girl. I just wish there wasn't so much negative space. The clutter in the background is distracting. It might have helped to use a larger aperture to blur the background more.

    i think the background is good if it has something to do with her (although perhaps if she was dressed different to apply to the background). Or if it is part of a story (in whick you might want to have a larger dof). Otherwise, on its own and meaning nothing...its odd. Crop it out

    LOL, in that case I would think you'd want to blur the background out so this fact is completely unrecognizable.

    Well the square works, if anyone asks, you just shot with a hasselblad, right? ;)

    Well, I cleaned up her face and made the color almost nonexistent, sharpened the eyes and lips and burned the background. Just a quick fix, but I think if you did something along the same lines, it communicates a little better, and looks less like a taco bell.

    I think the black and white one. Although, her eyes had already been sharpened.

    Hopefully you don't mind my edit..

    It's a good picture and a pretty girl.

    Photobucket is killing the image for me. Hopefully it's not too soft though.
