Definitely I agree with you John. The second version is better, not only because it's uncut, but the gray scale tonal range imposed.
Excellent light.Great work John.7/7.Regards.Janusz.
Very cool, beautiful and sensual feeling John.
A perfect b&w , The textures are marvelous . The only thing that disturbed my eye is the whit little tooth betwin her lips
A masterpiece,John. I like the second version more.
Great work John. I think it would help if she relaxed her fingers on the right hand (see how the left thumb is much more natural)and I would love to see all her hair (it's cut off just a bit).
7/7 BRAVO Fine work. Bravo. (the system did not let me rate by name. So i rated this piece of art anonymous)
Kosta, Alon, thank you very much. Antonio, thank you also. I shall re-examine the final print in view of what you say .. hmmm .. I'm starting to prefer the second "uncut" version now .. :-)
John, Exquisite in all aspect. Great tonality, expression and croping of your own style. Great shot John.
7/7 wonderful texture, and model's attitude. The soft lighting and grayscale... sensual and delicate. Thanks for the support and the critiques.
A classic John Peri... Beautiful model and tone, John :o).
Beatuful picture. I also prefer the uncropped version. IMO the compositon is more balanced then.
Has anyone noticed the repetition of intersecting lines in this image? Sub-consciously, I know that it is the reason that this image works! Just in case you don't know what I am talking about, the intersections are present from left to right as follows. The crotch of her jeans, the cross of her arms, the collar bone in her shoulders and the tangles of her hair. Yes, the model is pretty, the exposure is good, the tooth might stand out a little too obviously and the hair might be cut off at the edge. BUT, John, you have made an image that contains elements of composition that are notable. Whether you intended to or they were accidental, they are there and they contribute to an interesting image.
A mutual friend .. .. sugested that we take some photos together ..
