Pose Mr Photographer!

This is a shot taken by Tosin at lunch yesterday. I wasn't sure about the crop on this one so I think I'll let you all help me here. I initially wanted to crop out a quarter on the left but I would end up loosing my hand which was very well lit. What are your thoughts?

My initial thought would be to go tight with the crop but I'm glad you did not! That is a great image. Mal

I think the crop is good. I wouldn't think it would work with less of your hand in it.
hey jide,

first off, congrats on your engagement!!! second, i don't really see anything wrong with this shot. when i first looked at it, before reading the commentary, i immediately thought that the framing was really unique and worked really well. really nice shot tosin.
Looks perfect to me. verynice shot!

Hmm... I'm afraid this one leaves me cold. Much preferred yesterday's. Apologies to Tosin, I don't think it's so much the photo though, more the processing.

i do like the way your face has come out but the rest of the pic is far too muddy-toned for me....

Nice shot. Though I think a tighter crop in which most of your hand is removed would create a more interesting shot.
