Beautiful image. Really think this would work great as a square crop. xx

Thanks for the suggestion.  The shot was taken very close up, so there isn't enough room in the original image to make it a square crop without losing either the light on the back or the face altogether.

The lighting is great, it really highlights everything wonderful in this photo. :) I think I would have cropped off the top part with all that blank wall space though, it just doesn't seem necessary. Plus, the artist *cough cough I mean "kid" cough* in me wants to draw your outline in crayon, marker on some red horns and the tip of a tail, watercolor a highway that winds around the wall and blends into and keeps going across your back, or something fun like that! ;P LOL

So many of my images are in "storage", but I tend to leave space a lot in my images.  I guess it's the feeling of being alone or surrounded by the empty...not sure, but I like the feeling it creates.
Draw away!  Sounds fun!

You can't tell me things like that, that just piques my curiosity and makes a whole bunch of questions overload my brain!:baffled: ;P  LOL

I'm an open book...mostly.  Ask away.

Okay then... How are you with personal space? Do you want to back away or push the other person away if they get too close or the closer the better?

It depends on the person and the situation.  I like my space, but with good friends I like close conversation.  There's something intimate (and not necessarily sexual) about several friends having a close conversation, especially over a few drinks.  
Now, with strangers it definitely depends on the situation.  If I'm in, say, a hardware store and someone gets within my personal space then I'm going to first move, and then if it continues we're going to have words.
If I'm at a bar, and someone(s) approach me and are gentle then I'm usually very receptive.  And by that I mean I would need to perceive their approach as an invite to good conversation...or whatever.  I would certainly be even more open to that if it was my wife and I out for drinks and the approaching stranger(s) were engaging us both.

So, pretty much normal parameters then. Most people don't like feeling alone or surrounded by emptiness unless they have problems with being easily overwhelmed or touched. My son is Autistic, I have a friend who's an Aspie, and I have some sensory issues myself, so I feel like I'm maybe on the middle ground between spectrum disorders and not. Or at least I understand them better than some. Issues are definitely way more manageable than a disorder though. In general though, I just like to ask people lots of questions. I learn new things, hear different perspectives, etc. :)

Well, I do some yoga. This is a couple of years old, so I don't recall what I was aiming for. I think I just wanted to capture some good highlights on the various curves.
