I like the dramatic lighting...

Maybe crop a little from the right and possibly the top...?

I'll show you what I mean if you want...

But it's all subjective and JMHO...

Good image though...

I was thinking a little more drastic maybe...?



This reduces as much as possible everything that could be distracting and leaves
only the primary subject (your wife) and secondary subject (the sign)...

But this is all subjective and just my point of view...

Bottom line is what ever you like is what's best...

I think I prefer the crop by Wizzard, as it keeps the eyes locked on the the main subject without as many distractions. But everyone will have a different opinion, so in the end, it's what you are most pleased with.

In my opinion, however megar it is, I would crop it like this so the subject is more to the left in the shot looking into the frame instead of looking out of it. Just a thought... Frank
