    The centeredness (don't know a good word for it... hehe) kind of bothers me a little but I feel like cropping it anymore would take away too much from the picture.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    ohh nice tones and expression. In my opinion, you could get away with a closer crop if your angle was a little more side on. With the front on view like this, I keep wanting to see the rest of her body, or at least what she's looking at/reading.
    I really like the background. It's complex but subtle so as not to detract too much.

    Love the B&W!

    i don't like how her pony tail is cut off on the top. IF you have cropped that out, I would undo that and crop som from the left side of the photo to uncenter her a little.

    That's my two cents.

    oo. lucky.
    That bothered me, as well (the pony tail)
    And I thought that the original was like that as well, or that I deleted it.
    When I cropped it the first time it was to get prints, and I was forced to take it out, so, I went looking for the original... and *shock*, ponytail!
    So, I uploaded it:

    ... Edited to add:
    searched more.. realized that wasn't the same picture,
    and in the original the ponytail was cut off.
    At least I don't have to feel stupid about intentionally taking it out?

    I Think crop the left side off up to her hand and crop a little off the top upto the pony tail.

    Pity her feet arent in the picture too.
