    I'm looking for comments on this picture because I want to redo it soon and any improvements would be appreciated. Two things to keep in mind is my scanner sucks and this was done on a disposable camera (I know I know, but it was a spur of the moment thing to use up cameras she had from trips)

    Crop the bottom from just below the breasts. Crop the right margin tight against her left arm. Crop something from the top border only if needed to maintain the 35mm aspect ratio.

    It's a good pose and good angle, but I agree with cr--the crop is off. The negative space shouldn't be behind her, since she's looking forward. Also, the hands are missing, so as the eye is drawn down the arms, you get smacked with frame. On my monitor, the camera-right side of the face is very shadowed, but that could be my monitor--I've got a pretty goofy gamma setup to match my printer.
