Cant see much point in having all the dark space above her head, plus would like her looking in to the picture rather than out of it.

I dont like the composition much, too much empty space. I dont mind the pose and i do like the pp on this.

I think it depends on how the photo is used. I kinda like the space, maybe cropped just a little differently. But if it were used for a magazine shot or advert, that would be a very useful space.

I too am not a big fan off the crop I almost like how the rest of the picture is dark b/c your eye goes strait to her face. Beautiful girl, and beautiful picture.

seekphotography, it looks good, composition and all for the image. No, it would not work every time, but it does work here. If this was from a Bath & Bodyworks ad, etc.; they everyone would love it.

I always have issues with cropping myself, so this is probably a sorry attempt...

Heres the way I see it. I think this crop creates a great tension and makes the viewer start to think and ask questions. It appears something is drawing her out of the frame, what? Shes moving on leaving something behind?
