Sarah #3

I thought after working on a good portrait yesterday I'd try and improve on the style a bit more. This is a shot of Sarah from the photoshoot where I did previously this image. I'm really pleased with this one though it took me a bit of time to get the toning right.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Update: I've just uploaded the cropped version of this image.

Very nice toning Jide...top marks, don't really like the composition, too much space above the head for me... i did a quick crop...and son...it definately looks much better.
Jide Alakija: Yup I totally agree. I totally forgot and got carried away with the toning of the image. I should have cropped the top. RUBBISH! Thanks for pointing that out.

Very romantic feel to it. Great image. Would like to see the cropped version.

Fantastic shot.
I would crop the top and the bottom. I even think the bottom needs more crop than the top. So that your viwers get really hooked by your model's beautiful face!
Anyway, great portrait!
Love the PP and the right tone you obtain smile The composition doesn't work very much for me...
Great shot JIde....the time spent over the toning was well spent....you have caught a great spontaneous moment there....very nice. Phil

She is indeed very photograhic. I don't really appreciate the composition though, I find the bottom third of image very distracting.

Nicely done but I think the soft focus is just a little bit too strong on this one. Like everything else though.
