    Yup, more space above and less of the vignetting. Due to the strong vignetting, the focus is on her legs instead of her eyes and facial expression which is the soul of the whole pic.

    Vignetting is overdone and overused nowadays.
    I think this is a sad picture and the title just doesn't match what the picture is trying to convey.

    thanks guy for the comment . will take note .

    this is a crop pic , took a shot before auntie notice me shooting her.It is in orchard and many human traffic . have try to crop the top of as there is some distraction . Guess i got to wait for a better time to take the shoot .

    As for the vignette .. just learn this tip from photoshop so very eager to try it guse i have overdone it... will take note.

    As for the topic ... maybe i should change it to Earning a living ... any good idea.

    Hope that the pic sent a message ...or did it ???

    Thanks again for the comment

    Vignetting is too heavy (as others have mentioned). You must understand that vignetting largely works to focus the viewer's attention on the center of the frame, in this case where the lady's legs are.

    I don't think exposure is spot on, as what someone mentioned earlier. I find it underexposed (possibly because of the vignetting?) and lacking a focal point. It is too tight but lacking focus right now. Shooting a bit wider will give your picture more breathing space, as well as a greater sense of environment.

    second that - mid point is much too heavily done, especially when the subject is placed so.

    anyways, the composition *is* a tad too tight for comfort. correct that.

    did you shoot this at eye level?
