    Re: Kira

    The eyes ! Beautiful model
    nice light on her face with controlled shadows
    a bit of harsh light on the right side of the hat
    wish the crop was a bit wider , her right hand is cut right at the wrist
    her teeth need some whitening ?

    nice shot Greg !

    Most excellent. The hat has a sense of motion, which is okay, I think, but I found myself looing at it more than the model. Seems cropped a little too tightly to me.

    Re: Kira

    Thanks for commenting.

    The crop's very tough on this one ... I just can't find one that doesn't strip out some good stuff, while not distracting w/ what I leave! Maybe the hat's too interesting?

    Armando, the teeth are also a real chore to whiten, but I take a shoot on the repost here.

    So Lava, here's a fuller crop. Do you guys think it's better?

    Greg,
    I can see how the tight crop is complicated
    and
    also can see why you like the tight crop , this wide the eyes loose some of the impact

    wishs you had kept the nice tanned skin

    I really like the tight crop, if anything, hindsight being 20:20 and all, it may have had most impact without the hands! OTOH that would probably take the lovely shape of the hat out?

    Re: Kira

    Thanks Gooosberry. I do wonder what it might have looked like w/o her hands; probably a more conventional portrait. I guess w/ her hands like that it looks more like a hat advertisement
