    Olympus Digital, outdoor, no flash, overcast day, colored in photoshop.
    Ok, what I most wanna know about this is the crop. It was hard to determine. I usually have the head near the top, sept I wanted to have all of the mask in there and it was a long mask hehe. So lemme know

    I think the crop is fine. What irritates me a bit is the shoulder of the guy on the left, but there's no way to exclude it by cropping. What I find more disturbing is that the mask looks a bit like it's not attached to the face, really. It seems like there is shadow missing where shadow should be. But you asked for the crop, so I have to say that the crop is okay and captures the mask well, in my opinion. If you understand the mask as an extension of the head, then you can even say that the head is near the top.

    it probly looks like that cuz the mask is colored in and the rest is not. Thing is, it was an overcast day, so shadows didn't occur too much. I could add them in if I want to though, I suppose
