Great pic, pitty the skalp is cut-off on top

Rafal Wegiel's picture

Its still there :)

Sure enough :-) just a pitty because a bit larger framing and it would be perfect.

That something what is debatable ... actually the original image was shot the way that the top of her head is not cropped... but I follow golden rule and in my opinion it looks a bit better ... but not everyone have to agree with me ..and I respect that.

I like the crop. I don't think you need all of the head. The eyes lie almost within the rule of thirds and makes the shot more interesting. What kind of modifier are you using?

Rafal Wegiel's picture

I use two big Deep Octas by Rotalux with Nikkon Sb910 Speedlights

There is nothing wrong with cropping if done correctly.

I prefer the tight crop here.
