    Should she be more centered? Does this crop work? Help $1 (1 of 1)-7.jpg

    crop doesn't work. move her more to the left since that is the direction she's facing. Nice shot otherwise

    I think it's really nice, overall... Would you like my opinion on some ways you can improve the photo?

    Let me start by saying, as I've said, I don't know much about shooting people...with a camera. :)

    When I see pictures, I see a lot of haze or milky or cloudy...not sure what to call it. Like in this second picture. It's a good picture, so don't get me wrong..I'm just curious as to why most people photos I see have that. To me, I like to see darker, like the edit I put up. I'm not anyway shape or form saying mine is better, just saying this is how I like people pictures. With it being darkened like I did, I see some work may be needed if desired on shadows that are brought out, like under eyes.

    anyway, just curious and thought I'd post and see.

    I'm certainly not an experienced pro or anything, but I like the crop a lot better. I like that it cuts out the print on her t-shirt. I found that, and the composition, distracting in the first. I like the lighting!

    I like this crop better. She isnt looking into the side of the frame. Nice picture, though.

    Respectfully, I think the skin tone in this edit is way off... Too much pink and quite unnatural... Just my humble opinion...
