I'm curious if you find the shadow crossing over her chin distracting or if it adds interest. I have one without but I like this better... (show more)

    Hello Amy. To answer you question, not distracting it does just alter the shape of her face though…..does that bother me in the context of the shot…not really. Dave

      Your exactly right.  I suppose it works out ok here but might not for someone else. Thanks!

    This area along with the background are the brightest parts of the image meaning perhaps her face commands less attention as a result….would have been good to break this area up too with some shadow but appreciate that was out of your control unless you could have rigged something up quickly! I like the overall dramatic effect…nice. Dave

      That is such a good point, or I could have asked her to put on a darker shirt?

      I think its one of those things you may just have had to try. Go over the area in LR with a brush to reduce highlights…that may help. Dave

    My immediate reaction was that I want to see this in B&W! There’s little colour anyway,,,,what does it look like in B&W? Dave
