Holy moly. I'm a new oldbie to the Forums, so I wasn't familiar with your work. /me falls over in a faint. If I can ever get Flickr to work etc etc a for-sure "follow" for me. Jeebus you're putting up some awesome pix.

Ahem. :::cough::: I think I could start batting for the other team after this picture. What a wonderful, dynamic pose (getting all technical now, while fanning self). Great outfit. I'd say you :::cough::: nailed "sultry." (Sultry most likely enjoyed it.)

Great photo... yes the hands are a bit awkward, but it’s still a beautiful shot...

BTW- particularly with this photo and that hair, I feel the overwhelming need to address you as, "your grace". 🐉🐉🐉

Ergh. This needs a border because the close cropping is lost. Raw screenshot.

If I may make a suggestion?

That is a gorgeous image, but what it needs is not a frame. Instead it needs some negative space; some room for the image to breathe.

I hope you don't mind me making some minor edits to your image, but I've put behind the below spoiler tag two examples of how adding some negative space on one side of the image (remember the Rule of Thirds!) allows it that breathing room. The negative space  draws the eye to the subject of the image, and - depending which side the space is on - it can also affect the mood of the image.

Personally - of the two edits - I would opt for the second image with the white space to the left, because it draws the eye to (and accentuates) the curve going up from your shoulder, past your neck, and up to your ear.

I don't mind suggestions, comments or alterations, at all. I went to design school at university and it was all about (sometime brutal) group critiques. It taught me not to be precious about my own work. *Normally* I use a lot more negative space, but for this one I purposefully chose to really minimize it, which I think emphasizes certain points of the image. In the Flickr view (where the crop shows up to its advantage), hopefully your eye goes immediately to the subject's eyes. I hope. Ah, it is all subjective. Here's two links to my normal negative space stuff, and one link to this photo that shows it how I really cropped it (white background didn't work on white forum background). I'm truly fine with your comments and welcome more. On this one we'll disagree about the tight cropping. :) (Negative space:

and the Forum keeps putting in the image, not the link, but the link to my main page which shows the photo in question at the beginning of the photostream is https://www.flickr.com/photos/157137235@N03/with/47942234956/

Depending on what you want to capture in the image... play with the Ctrl-9, Ctrl-0, and Ctrl-8 keys to change the camera. The distortion from a wide or close up 50mm lense can be increased or eliminated.
