    That is the question! I sent this photo to a friend and she printed it without the book. She said her expression was what she liked. So, what do you think? Is the book distracting or is this a matter of taste?

    The pic focus isn't the greatest. I was having a frustrating day with my new Fuji s9100. :confused:

    For me, the book is distracting. I'd say crop it!!

    I say with the book, it adds to the photo.

    Its better without the book only because it looks like a snap shot with the book it defiantly shows the photo was taken when she looked up from reading.
