Just a thought.... might it not look better if Lynn was shifted to the right a tad..?

I'll have to at the set to see if there are any of her shifted right or left. Otherwise it is something to think about on our next shoot.

Excellent photo.

You caught her at the perfect moment, great smile, hair looks great, the hands are positioned nicely and you nailed the exposure.

Simon's suggestion is one to think about in the future. Having the background in front of her would make it even better. But I'd be happy with this one if it were mine.

Very nice Craig.

Thanks Mike,
What do you mean by "having the background in front of her"? Sounds interesting always looking for new ideas.

Yeah that sounds confusing, sorry. Let me phrase that differently

If you place her to where she is facing into the photo rather then out of the photo as she is in this shot it usually looks more appealing. Not always but usually.

In this particular shot, the background that you can see behind her would be on her front side. She would be looking into the shot or better yet, her frontside would be facing into the shot

Hope that helps.
