A lady from my church: is this pic ok or should i have not cut her hands off. i did crop it though. The date of course is not set right.
I wish she was looking at you, or that we had some idea what she was looking at.
Also I'm no expert but I would think if her body was the facing the same way as her head you could crop the other side and it work.
(love your siggy pic)
I think the picture is fine. The flash makes it a little, well, flashy, but overall I think the photo is okay. Your background is looking much better! If you have room in the original, I'd like to see more space at the top of her head.
The alternate to more space at the top is a closer crop. That would also get rid of the date and solve the "is it okay to chop the hands" problem.
Amber explained it well. I would try that. Background is looking much better!
