Light through a window this weekend presented what looked like an opportunity.  Please critique this result.

I usually refrain from commenting here, as Kirk will verify, but I think your title is very misleading: where the hell's the bust?

I can see a potential image here but some cropping will have to be done to the sides and bottom. The head has already been cropped when you pressed the shutter button. A better composition would have been better at the point of capture? Some nice side lighting on the bust. My take on the cropping but others may suggest something better? Wink

From the free online dictionary: "2. (Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Art Terms) a sculpture of the head, shoulders, and upper chest of a person."

In the art world, a "bust" doesn't have to include the part that you prefer to focus on, Rob.

My apologies:  Knowing I was wrong, I had consulted a dictionary, which confirmed it, but I wished to pose behind a classy title. ["classy title" being another way of saying {Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Art Terms}]  I do not often enough stop to consider the pain I may inflict by not being more simply accurate.  And it is hard to argue that it would not be better off with a bust.

I think your crop is an improvement. Good call.

The movement of the sun had cropped the top of the head this late in the shoot.  I tried to apply your idea to an earlier frame with more hair [there were 69, what with wind in the trees making the light move and flicker], but came back to this one.  Thanks, for the help.

Frankly, when you get short-changed in the bust department, art flies oot the windae, as they might say in Scotland (help, stamper, can't spell the lingo!)

Okay, declaration: of course bust was the correct word; just trying to lift my gloom is all. Oy veh, already!

I don't know if it argues for the crop one way or the other, but because stamper's thumbnail was brighter than mine and because I had not reprocessed the file [other than sharpening] when I cropped it,  I brightened it, etc.
