It saddens me to forward the news that our good friend and fellow photographer, Matt Quinn, has passed.
As some of you may know, he had been battling cancer for a while and was on his way to recovery.
Please take a moment to remember him in your prayers.

Here is an entirely different version of this young lady, in the Kitchen Sink style, without the mystery and finesse of Dave's elegant version.

Minnie, I'm liking your version much better. The kitchen sink speaks high volumes, but yet still sets the stage for this lovely tarot reader. The other one I have is close to yours, but nowhere nearly as effective.

Dave;
Original picture. You are telling a story of the Tarot card reader and the cemetery. Converging lines into the centre of the picture, great, really sucks you in.
Perhaps open details within the converging lines with a graduated feeling, so that as you go deeper, more is exposed. That way we know without being told what the background is.
Above is a discussion idea only...Have fun
Your thoughts?

Absolutely Ed !!! I'll keep that in mind and maybe rework the composite. Either way thou, I still would have mentioned the background, someone probably still wouldn't have make the connection.

Proof once again that multiple versions are possible with the same subject. She was quite beautiful in an ethereal way, so there was no way to go wrong with her. I noticed the guy who had twisted to look at her. You zoomed right in on her. Different chapters in the same story.
