    composition help

    howdy..... I am trying to learn/ understand putting a picture together. I have this image started....she won't get to much more detail, probably work in some more contrast with the flesh tone, the "scarf" i am getting stuck on.

    But i was wondering, if i clean up the figure some more, how would that work in terms of catching the eye, attention, space thing, if that at all makes sense. Or should something be added to focus attention.

    Sorry if that is a bit confusing, I am fairly new at how to express some of this...i am mostly a doodler..

    thanks

    Personally, I would crop it. I see no need for all of the "dead space". The figure is looking back into the picture and the arc brings the eye back to the right. The rest is superfluous.

    Why don't You put something within similar colour tones for instance, to the left on the floor to counterbalance?
