That was mostly the effect I was going for. The face didn't seem to stick out as much the other way. Interested to see if others think it ruins the picture.
IMO, subject too bright, background too dark, cropped to tight, should have left the top of her hair and bottom of her hand
I think it has potential, you caught a nice expression. Did you bump up the contrast in PP? It's just too much IMO. Shadows are too black, highlights blown out.
A nice shot, but I agree the subject is a little too bright. I'm OK with the dark background and even the tight crop, although I think it needs to be tight on the sides as well. Also, darken that light on the left above her right hand so it doesn't compete with the subject.
