More light? :) I can hardly see it Will. My first thought is separation to the right of the image. I can see the subject holding something but can't make out what it is.

I like the jumping image a lot. It has good lighting, and a nice shape to her figure.

I would caution you on using two images though. I am not saying it can't be done, ust keep in mind that anything can draw a judges eye away from te center of interest. Two wie of a pin stripe, a light area at the edge, another image within the image. My point is that you can easily confuse a judge as to what to look at. On my laptop, which is not calibrated, it does not appear that the profile adds anything to the composition. Take it all with a grain of salt though. I don't always know what I am talking about!!

I agree, I'm not sure two images will score well..... The nose being right at the edge of her face really takes away from the shape of her profile, as does the eye breaking the plane....there are some rules of portraiture that make a lot of sense, not breaking the plane is one of them....:cool:

Thanks for doing that. I could not see the second image on your first post. I thought it was something she was holding. Now I understand better. Nevermind.
