I think I should make a tighter crop but I just didn't want to loose the hair....

Hi Rafal, I might crop further down on her head to add a bit more intimacy. Personally, I like the wide aspect ratio and the negative space you've chosen.

Thank You for your comment.... You are absolutely right that should be cropped a bit more but I was really struggling with this one as the hair add so much to the image ... Thank you for feedback ...its always to good to hear other people opinion.

PLEASE, don't 😁 instead just crop portrait [that's what the name stands for] or use square. Nice one though!!👍

I love the shot but the black hair lit more to one side gives it a somewhat pointedness ...My suggestion is to use Selection ellipse or circle then add a small black space above her head that would shape it better... and the visual disconnect would compliment your composition and leave the hair at length..... also the elongated head adds nothing to the composition
