Hi guys.

So I was in the studio again. This model was great with her poses but with one shot I achieved I loved the look, it was strong.

A few photographers saw this photo and said her hand is really distracting, is it really that bad that it takes the attention away from her.? Is there any way I can remove it without cropping or is it not that bad?

Would love to get some ideas.

Thanks. =]

Wow this is really beautiful!!!! I hate to say it but I agree, the hands are a distraction. And I say that because I look right at them every time I look at this photo.
You could, with some work, remove the hand on the right. You would be left with a missing shoulder which you could probably fix by using the opposite shoulder and flip it. Then try to clone stamp or patch it up so it looks more natural. I do a lot of photo manipulation, and I could see this working for you.

I think it could be distracting ONLY because its cut off.

^^ This is true. I keep looking at it wondering why, and that makes sense.

I just learnt a huge lesson. Thanks alot guys, I found some photos very similar to this one but her pose in this is too good, the others that have just her face showing as not as intense. I will work on another image and see if it works better, if not I will try and clone it out.

And I would add..
BOTH hands need to be removed.

The face by itself is stunning!


cheers, Paul

If the hands could be cropped IN right, the way they are held/posed adds even more femininity to the image. Just my opinion.
