SGCBearcub Love the hand as wrinkled and now the lighting, yeah nice start but I feel the hands get lost and merges too much with the body. This would be ok if she had a really weird expression making you wonder why, and then you see the hand. If that is the case then I feel her head/eyes should be in one of the composition focal points.
What is your main subject, her face or her hand?
Can I suggest try using some composition guidelines (don’t like calling them rules as they can be broken if you know how).
Choice one is to read up on Composition
or a second choice is to try out Jaderail’s new toy Golden Rules of Composition Camera Prop for DS4.5
If the hand is the focal point then try setting the Camera to 35mm this will bring the hand really forward and smack you around the face when you see the image.
Unless you want it to be subtle then I would go for the expression route. But moving the head/hand to a focal point will work so much better IMHO. But like I say with everyone it is your image to do with, you’re the one that has to be happy with it these are just my opinions. I will take no offence if you do your own thing as I am still new and learning.
