This again is my wife Melissa. Its hard to try and shoot anything or anyone else, when there is this much beauty to work with. We went up to see some family in Canada and came to Old Fort Erie, this gate was incredible, so I told her to stand in front of it, and just started shooting. It was hard to pick just one good picture from about 20 because she made all of them look so good. But this is the one I ended up with. Hope people like. And like always constructive critisism would be appreciated.

She is intriguing and it's a fine portrait. The background "dots" are distracting.

I think cropping this much tighter on the right and bottom would make this a more dynamic shot. 7
