Okay I've had a very very exhausting day so I didn't have the energy to process the shot I wanted to post. Anyway tgus was one of the last shots from the shoot with Sarahlouise. I have a little trivia here. What do you think is the really out of focus bit in the shot?

Cool composition, would have liked a touch more 'punch' about the eyes though. I reckon the out-of-focus bits are her knuckles/fists.

Nice shot. I would say hands? but then again one eye looks out a bit too.

Would have liked the two eyes to be in focus since they are on the same plane. With posed stuff the really no excuse for not getting the shot right, one should not be in a hurry.
Is the out of focus part her fist...would have been nice if it was alittle more in focus.

On the whole though, I like this shot alot, but for the small technicalities that next time SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN son smile

In some ways I do not actually care however, perhaps the knuckles? The eyes have the photo and it's great. Mal

I love shots like this, I love it when the eyes connect with the camera and is captured well, you do that here, but.... the nose, the nose the nose.

Nuff said smile

hey jide,

terrific capture. i really like the way the shot is framed. her expression is pretty intense. i would venture to say that the blurred image are her hands. very nice.

It looks like her knuckles. Like both her fists are in front of her (I can see what looks like rings). I love her eyes, not so sure about the blur though.

I'm with Skee, stunning but would have expected to have both eyes in focus because of their relative positions in the frame.

Is the out of focus bit her nose and she's actually a hammerhead shark?

I am suprisingly impressed by this shot. Especially as i did not like the orginal. I really like what you have captured here.

Good work!
