Great image but I would love to see the top of her head. just personal preference because I don't like to cut off my images.

Sorry I dont agree with your comment, look at the incredible work of Peter Hurley and many other top photographers. The top of the head is not important, visit my site and you will see what I mean, I always cut the head off on most my shots, it brings you in to the subjects eyes, the eyes are the focus always. www.jeffgoe.com

So you don't agree he would love to see the top of her head or you don't agree it's his personal preference!?
Since the subjects eyes aren't particularly sharp and are in shadow, I don't know you want to direct the audience to her eyes in any case. But that's just my opinion... unless you disagree. ;-)

BTW, I went to your site and there are some really nice photos.

Thanks, glad you like my shots. As for the photo, yes I do agree Peter would crop some of the head out and so would I. Pulling it in more give the viewer more too much on, even though her eyes are slightly covered in her hair I’m still drawn to them as that is the focus point. For me eyes are everything in a shot and if I crop the head a bit to focus you in then so be it. Go for the eyes you cant go wrong. Toy with this in your own photography and you will see what I mean, pull in the shot sit back and compare the two. The eyes have it lol.
