    I've just updated the photo of Lauren after photoshopping out the label on her scarf.

    Very nice shots - bit of a crop on the portrait perhaps?

    Were you using a little fill flash Tim?

    Train shot's a winner as well - tells the story perfectly

    Fill flash on the portrait. The light was very very flat. Not on the train, it was taken from a bridge over a level crossing, which had flood lights, hence the light in the foreground.

    The portrait is already cropped, but could be cropped further - what would you suggest Chris?

    was thinking that you could crop some of the space above Lauren's head perhaps - get her face away from center frame

    I love the way snow gives depth to photos - the train shot shows this really well - it softens the more distant objects and really helps the foreground objects stand out :)

    Refresh the page Chris and see what you think now - I've cropped it down somewhat, but any more and it chops off a lot of her right shoulder.

    PS These were taken with the 50mm 1.4. I'm getting to like it now. Composition isn't too difficult if you are happy to crop later.
