Amfibius said:Cropped version is better. Maybe you would like to consider cropping it even more tightly, just at the top of granny's scalp? That would lose all the distracting toys in the background.
Normally i'm not a big fan of these soft focus gaussian blur effects but I can see how it really adds to this photo. Good work!
I think the background is too distracting for mono...My personal feel abt BW is it must be very simple and what a person perceived should be just simple and focus....(less objects involved)Witness said:wat bout mono??
