Hi Jide. Well, I know you like a lot of negative space around your portraits, but I'm not sure that having the subject completely outside the frame really works. And anyway, what's that wine glass doing there?

smile smile

But seriously - you've captured agreat light here and the title says it all. Not sure which one I prefer, they've both got their merits.

BTW - Looks like you've got some sensor dust - I can see two spots about halfway between the top of the glass and the top of the frame. They're in yesterday's shot too. At F4, they must be monsters. sad
Jide Alakija: Thanks alot Steve. Yeah I do have loads of sensor dust, I need to make time to clean it. sad

Jide Alakija: Thanks Funmi.
They each have their merits. This one is a study in light and yesterdays is pure elegance, I like them both.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Johnny
this one all the way...no matter how elegant that one is this one is simply sublime...

i cant make up my mind as to how i feel abou this. sometimes i look at it and i love the clearness and simplicity.... sometimes it just comes across as bland. No criticism tho, still godd work.
Jide Alakija: Critisize, critisize please.....
