    hmm crop is nice, i mean the space there which shows a gap for thinking.

    but then again, hard to put into words... the subject dun look like pondering.

    its a candid, so i leave it as it is, a nice shot on candid.

    I was hoping you would be the first to comment

    Just curious, whether your subject intentionally poses for you or just a shot which the subject is unaware of ie. candid, does it really affect the value of your shot??

    Appreciate more comments from the rest too

    i mean pose & look does not suggest pondering.

    for candid, i dun think anyone can control how one pose. value wise, depends on how each person perceive. I can give a ratings, but how u give yours is not subjected to my approval.

    and a posed shot vs a candid, most likely is in the eye, and the background.

    eye contact and a smile from the subject would improve the candid portrait IMHO.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    if its candid, nothing could be improved, since u got no control over subject. Its there & then.

    if its a posed shot, then there is alot to take note, like bg, expression, body language, lighting, hair, etc.
