Default Contemplation

My first posted shot. This was taken after my wife had just received some bad news and was sitting on the porch out back. I know that sounds cruel, but I couldn't ignore the quality of light and her expressive pose (she likes it, btw ). Please critique, I welcome your ideas for improvement. -Mark

Focus is on the hand apparentely. A little work on levels may be needed. And you can work on the sharpness also. Nice catch!

Nice shot, really captures the mood. Spot focusing on the eye would have given a softer look to her hand drawing more attention to the expression on her face. Of course remembering and doing everything while trying to catch a shot on the fly is easier said than done.
Comments always welcome.

agree with the others and like the slight adjustments Ordo made. You COULD use a level and add more softness to the hand to see how that works to re-direct attention away from it back to the eyes.
