Mr. Spooky, I think you might need to calibrate your computer. On mine, I can clearly see what looks like a bad bit of cloning, on the second image. To the right of the model. Trying to help, rather than criticise. Dave
As has had been said before 'negative space' technically refers to space that creates a form and is often seen in logo design, such as the arrow in the Fed Ex logo. White space/clear space is probably a more correct term (certainly from design jargon) for the use of space around a subject allowing it to breathe.
