Very true! This shot also illustrates how a strong composition might not follow 'rules'.
Thanks for sharing,

@ John
Enjoyed the shots of Hollie, well lit & great fun - I wondered what the paint spattered B & W's would look like with some sharp grain effect added ?
Just a thought !
Thanks for posting

Saint, that's a good photo. I too have had the difficulty of editing out creases. However, I learned that you can easily pull the subjects forward and if it is one person you can open up the aperture and this will blurr the background rather nice to the point where the wrinkles do not matter. Either way, it's a nice portrait. Personally, I would have added a gift or something as a prop to add a little festivity to the shot. YMMV
