This week's glamorous header image comes from Renee Haddad, whose photography has been featured on the You Shoot page. I love how the framing, dramatic lighting, and motion give it richness and drama. Note that the face is out of focus and off to the side, while the actual focal point of the picture is the center of the parasol, so the eye is led back and forth across the picture. Great composition.

I like this shot even more, but it didn't work as a header image for reasons unrelated to its quality. It's another glamorous shot but from an angle you wouldn't expect. Great lighting, too.

And check out the companion image.
