I didn't have her pose or anything. She was just starring into space, and I shot this pic real quick before she noticed.

Like the treatment,

Next time, you might want to recompose your subject in the shot, so they're not so much in the center, using the rule of thirds. Leaving more open frame on the side they're looking towards makes for a more appealing composition. Did you shoot this in Landscape orientation then crop it square? Usually shots of standing people look best in Portrait orientation. jmho! :wink:

Thanks for the suggestion, Steve. I just quickly took the picture, but ironically there was a lot of room in front of her with the orginial shot. However, when I opened it up in PS, I cropped a lot out, and came out with what you see. Next time I'll remember what you said. I'm really not used to doing portrait, since I mainly shoot landscape/animals, but it's definitely something I'll keep in mind for the next time!
