Below the Peak

Uploaded: September 09, 2005


The third of my mini series of close up portrait experiments. This one is a very different pose - probably breaks all the rules but I thought it worked quite well. Also risked this in colour rather than B&W. Love to know what you think so I can go away for my next few attempts with ideas of how to improve and/or what has worked! Got to dash off to Manchester on a course just now - will catch up with all my commenting later!

BEAUTIFUL Janet!! The hat works wonderfully to frame her face and draw out those GORGEOUS eyes!! Love your framing and intimate tight crop, too! ... My vote is for more color portraits! :) #307407
