    This is a spontaneous shot I took of my fiance. Saw her on the phone and I scrambled to get my camera and waited for a few good shots. This is the best one. I'm looking for general comments/critiques. What do you think? What would you have done differently pre and post-photoshop?

    I think you made a terrific shot. It tells a whole story. Technically, I like the sepia given your obvious feelings about your subject. The head is cropped more than I would like but as a candid you should consider it a winner. Congrats.

    Very lovely fiance. Congratulations.
    Great capture of emotion and presence.
    The areas at the borders where the crop clipped the supject is called "A Merge". I think the shot is very good except for the presence of merges.

    Yeah I'm not too pleased about the merges either. But thank you very much for your thoughts. They're much appreciated.

    I am actually finding out that I dont like sepia much at all. I much more prefer just a desaturated (not quite black and white) picture over sepia.
