I'm not allowed to put this on social media but she didn't say anything about PU!

Can't think why you are not allowed to exhibit such a good portrait.
I might have been tempted to go square

Thanks both! Typical beautiful lady syndrome where she doesn't see how beautiful she is and doesn't like images online of her. One day she'll see what I see

I looked at different crops but settled on a 16:9 as I liked the framing and the hint of arms and hands in the shadows

A lovely, intimate portrait.

It raises a question in my mind: could you have turned out something as good if she was a model rather than you wife?

I'm with your wife 100% re not wanting her photo put on social media, I don't want personal pictures of me on social media either. Nothing to do with how beautiful I am (not!!!), some of us simply aren't comfortable with it - and contrary to what much of the population seems to think, it's not obligatory .

That's a good, non-traditional portrait - like the choice of format and processing

Both the lighting and the crop give it a movie-film look. Like it.
