Hi,

Less clothes? :blah:

Just kidding... I am not sure why but it looks like she is getting smaller down to her feet but it doesnt appear like the camera angle would make this happen? Can't quite put my finger on it...

Hope you don't mind, made an attempt at a crop - not really sure if it is better or not? Just for some inspiration?

Dom

Edit: Actually after looking at it on the forum decided I don't really like my edit - but it would make a neat business card...! I left it uploaded anyway...

i like the original a lot. i like the perspective that dom mentioned, i dont think it hurts the photo. beautiful girl too, that always helps. it seems a bit soft but that's the portrait kinda look i guess. whew. what a beaut.

Ohhh... I thought you said Girlfriend in a red dress AND a BMW.

I am hard of hearing.

This is a nice shot... But the pose looks (just a tad) uncomfortable.

But I'm not qualified on this and I think it is a great shot.

This is a great shot. I would have to agree with above that she looks a bit stiff. I think its the left arm. Let her relax it a bit, bend at the elbows and see if that improves the look of the shot. I certainly wouldbnt have minded taking this shot. Nice.

Hi Ken, not sure if you should get worried or not , but it would appear that your girlfriend is developing quite a fan club. :-)

Nice shot by the way

Its the comfortable and confident pose of your girlfriend that make this work. Nice exposure too.

However I have to admit to seeing the perspective as a little strange also taking this off perfect. What lens are you using. Are you very tall perhaps, and maybe a wider than ideallens on the camera?
