Henna by MightyT Henna by MightyT
I spent more than half an hour looking at the picture, asking my self whether to upload it or not. It's been a long time since I uploaded anything. I hesitated a lot and finally decided not to upload it. Then again I was like: It is better to upload it and here peoples comments about it which will help me improve then not knowing what are the down sides of the picture.

There are many reasons that make me not like the picture, I was in a hurry the girl couldn't wait for too long. The hand isn't alligned to the tables decoration which makes the picture look messed up. The tip of her fingers are out of focus and the shadow of her hands is cropped.

This is something we have in our tradition, girls decorate their hands in an event called "jalwa" which comes before the wedding. The material used is called "henna" and there are many styles and artistic designs talented girls make for the bride and her guests.

Please, critique is needed. I would like to hear anything that crosses your minds.

i actually quite like the position as well beacuse it leaves the photo more dynamic and less static it gives it more intreast like there was almost something going on when you took the photo instead of it being a posed forced position
