About the Image(s)

Portrait made on a recent model shoot in a nearby park.
I preferred this framed image to the regular full length model images.

She looks like a fairy, and has wonderful facial bone structure. I think the highlights of the white in the photo need to be toned down, they are too bright. Perhaps blurring them would also help. A nice unique composition, I like the green frame and wonder if the blur of leaves on the right could be balanced with the sharpness on the left. Why is there a blue spot on the left eye level in the photo?

Great image. I love the way she is framed by the tree. I think the background is a bit too bright. I think that blue spot should be removed. Your imagination could go wild looking at this picture.   Posted: 07/09/2021 16:24:20

You were not helped in this image by the very bright day, which has resulted in an over-bright background and a burnt out shoulder on your model. I quite like your framing of her by the leaves, though I would prefer not to have any crossing the top of her head. I would be inclined to clone out the freckles on her back as once spotted they keep drawing my attention, also the single blue flower on the left is distracting.   Posted: 07/10/2021 06:24:07

This is a fun opportunity. Gonna do my first model shoot in August so you are giving me ideas. Love the framing.
She is so fair. I wonder what it would look like if converted to Black and White with adjustments to the blown out areas. The leaves crossing her head has me imagining a fairy wreath. Kinda like them.
Totally love the crop. Thanks for sharing.   Posted: 07/15/2021 10:27:37

Good composition and framing. Focus on subject and rest blurred is good. Brig background is just too bright. profile really well caught. Perhaps a bit more head turn to catch the eye would be interesting,   Posted: 07/17/2021 05:57:07

I really nice photo of the girl and the framing of branches and leaves. The other comments are spot on with the area on the left which is a bit blown out.   Posted: 07/19/2021 10:40:21
