This was shot with 135L and 6D
First real try at frequency separation and pretty confident in it now.
The cropping... Should I crop higher up seeing how I chopped her feet off??

Since you didn't 'chop off' at a joint, no.

^^^ agree the rule of thumb is don't crop at a joint so you are all good


(my eyes suck fyi) but unfortunately my attention is being drawn to the bricks slightly in front of her bc they look sharer then her eyes. did you nail focus?

I'd try a horizontal crop putting her on the right third.

Hope you don't mind...

The line separating the brick and block walls just kills the shot. Whatever soft fuzzy you get from shallow dof is lost to this distracting element. You could also do with a bit of contrast and vibrancy boost.

In this edit the bricks and blocks now look like they have motion blur.

You just can't edit a picture into being great.
