I'm not entirely happy with the composition of this one, but there's something about her expression that made me think it was worth posting.

I agrre completely with you. The composition isn't perfect, but he look on the girl's eyes really make it a very interesting work.

How often are you caught taking pictures of people?! And after all these years of shooting do you ever feel really "exposed" with a great big and expensive lens like the 70-200mm?

Really like the eyes in the image.

Gorgeous photograph David. I really like this photo because of her expression and look in her eyes.

looks a tad washed out to me also all detail is lost on the shoulder, also i maybe wrong but is the face out of focus a tad when compared the glasses on her forehead seems it . I also find the strap distracting , just how i see it .

Thanks all.

ed: I did say that it wasn't especially well composed, but I'm puzzled by our comment regarding the detail on her shoulder. What detail were you expecting?

I like it, as I do all of your 'high key' portrait work that I've seen so far. They have a wonderful ethereal quality that adds a touch of interest and mystery. It's nice work.
