    Any C&C would be appreciated. This is the original photo. I have looked at it cropped, but it seemed to lose something. I really like it in B&W but thought I would post the original for comment. Thanks!

    Great pose, good exposure, focus.
    IMO, cutting off the image at her wrist hurts the potential the most.
    (altho the blank sky doesn't help)

    Hey I like the way you got the corn to really look like it goes back far like that. And she is adorable, nice pose. I do think there is a little bit too much of the sky since there isn't much going on in it. Did you try a vertical crop?

    Or never mind the vertical... You tried this? I like it with her in the middles till but not so much stuff all around. Still get the focused leaves in the fromt and the feeling of how far stuff goes back. Just thought i'd play. Nice pic. ;)

    the best thing you did here was to shoot her at eye level. Too many people outdoors try to shoot little people from their own comfort angles. You really should and you did get down to their level.

    I didn't even notice that I cut her wrist off. Good point to look for in the future.

    I like the crop taking off the sky. I actually cropped it the other direction which I didn't like. Thanks!
