thanks for the comments - I agree with consensus of not having the model included but i fell into the trap of thinking it was too empty without her.
She(the model) happens to be my wife & has had a good chuckle about general point of view that she should be cropped out!!
Many apologies mrs chrissawyer, hopefully you can forgive us it was in the name of art you understand and having seen the last comment that your husband typed...aahh! .....and they say that romance is dead!
