I would normally agree with this but at the same time, it's not very good for photography as a whole if everyone went by certain popular photography guidelines or rules. Whether it be the rule of thirds or not cutting off the knees or cropping every picture a certain way. If all photos were cropped and framed the same way, it all would be so boring to look at, in my opinion.

Not trying to make this a big deal, just sharing my humble opinion :D

Don't get me wrong, I have only expressed my opinion, not aware of most of those rules - well I am aware of the rules of thirds, but do not follow it always either. All I was saying is, that I prefer not to scroll until I see those beautiful eyes in this wonderful capture. Anyways, this does not change the fact, that this photo is a fine piece of work and that I like it that way also...

I suspect it was taken as is simply because the center AF point was used. (Shot with a 5D2 after all ;).) If he was shooting with a camera with a more dependable/reliable focus system away from the center-point, I suspect the original composition would leave less negative space above the model's head.

That light is plenty good enough for any focus point to work. I almost never shoot center focus on my 5D2.
Neat thing about the picture (for this discussion) is that by scrolling we can edit the picture ourselves and see the different crops. If you crop just over "GUS" in the back ground it looks great, but the three vertical lines near the top make a nice rhythm and counterpoint for the lower half. Instead of just another "pretty girl" shot, it's a more interesting, balanced composition--although it certainly would look good cut lower, too.

Second that. The first shot of the model is very good, the second also, but there is too much useless space above the models head. If he crops that one tighter, it will be even better...

Different strokes, for different folks I guess. I find that the background adds to the atmosphere of the composition.

I get where you're coming from. Appreciate the feedback.

Bingo!

Here's another one. This lens is almost too sharp. In some shots I didn't notice till after I processed them that I could see the red veins in her eyes lol. I need to pay attention more.

Killer shots Chris! We finally got some snow in Portland. They've been claiming it's a snow "storm" but it's little more than a light dusting. Hope it's still there in the morning! Took these between ISO 4000-6400. I'm interested in the 1Dx but the 5D2 handles noise really well imho. The snow also helps :)
