You pulled out her blue nails just for this photo?
Man, you are a sadist! ;-)
But I guess, with the top of the head chopped off, that probably doesn't
hurt any more. ;-)
On a serious note, - let me clarify my comment (after reading your
response in the previous thread). -
Yes, I know about that trend of cutting of a portion of the head.
I even do that myself occasionally
(see my photo in the 2012 PDML annual :
My point was that it works if you make a more close-up shot, e.g.
when it is head-only, or maybe in some cases head-and-shoulders.
But when you include as much as hands, - the chopped off head does not
work (for me).
BTW, the 2/3 rule that you mentioned is not followed in this portrait.
Again, sorry if it appears as too much of criticism. I didn't mean to
"attack" you. I just like the photo otherwise.
Also, - just a thought for your "wrinkle" problem:
If you let it hang for a while, you may want to sprinkle some water from
a windex-type spray bottle. Or, better yet, try a wrinkle-releaser:
(you can buy it at a walmart you grocery supermarket or pharmacy store).
Depending on the fabric, it might work better than just plain water.
