Hi Gena, just want to say that you have taken a nice portrait. I like the choice of you using B&W. The only thing that I would say is that I would have moved her futher back so that you could have avoided the distraction to the right of her. Still a good portrait. #506202

Tony... I really want to thank you for your comment. So I should stand her away from the window right? Only using the wall? Thank you again it sure helps me in the learning process. :)
Have a super day! Gena :) #3185682

Hi Gena, it's a great portrait! Crop the window out proportionally and you will remove also the bottom left corner.
Great smile! #6359549
