The second shot is wonderfull. The first one seems somehow cut of with the light. My eyes weren't drawn away, but lead from the model to the light "egg". Great edit.

I like the photo without showing the top of the curve in the light. I agree that it tends to draw attention away from the woman. Very nice work. She looks relaxed and comfortable, kind of passes that feeling on to the viewer.

Hi;

My two cents. The first shot is very intimate. I like that. The second shot suggests a much larger space... the model instantly looks more detached, islolated. I like that. So it's apples and oranges. You say tomato, and I say tomato... (I guess that doesn't work unless someone sings it) The point, though is how the space and the lighting affects the impact of the photo, and what the artist's intention is.

Another point, (which is essentially moot, given that the second shot is just a quick knock-up to show the lighting effects) is the subtle elements which work in the smaller composition.

There is a subtle, yet necessary texture on the surface behind the model in the first shot. This, as well contributes to the intimacy of the shot, like apianissimopassage draws the audience into a musician's performance. Now I understand why they are missing from the second shot, but I'm not so certain they would have the same effect in this case. The first shot is chamber music; the second, opera. Economy of scale may require more detailed textures to bring us closer to the model. (I apologize for the mixed metaphors here, I tend to get carried away)

By the way, I think it is a nice, tasteful shot.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada
