    i adore hie for people work. less than 1% of my hie is the typical 'dark sky, puffy white clouds and foliage, and thrown in junk for shadow values'. that said.....

    I love HIE for portraiture - it really imparts a luminescence to the skin that sets it apart. Gorgeous!! I'm not 100% certain I like the crop here, cropping out the left breast and part of the shoulder is throwing my eye off on this nude. But then I don't have the benefit of seeing the entire image. Beautiful catchlights here.

    Overall, great portrait!

    nudes are landscapes. ;)


    that said, left breast intentionally cropped as it was far too weighted to the lrc. the crop forces focus on the 1/3 urc and um.

    i have shot a lot of 'olan mills' portraiture with appendages and other crap 'in frame' just because convention(?) requires it. outside of that, i shoot emotively and cerebrally.

    the real question is, 'does this leave you with any feeling of the subject?'

    The answer to the last question is Yes - positive reaction to a beautiful image. I was pretty sure the crop was intentional, but thanks for the clarification on that! :)
