Taken today at Carew Mill in Pembrokeshire. An excellent location and the weather was great. I did upload a version of the image earlier but deleted as I wasn't 100% satisfied with it. The room was quite dark, but didn't want to use a flash, so had to use quite a high iso.

Comments and crits always welcome.

Nick

EDIT: Version 2 is my prefered version; it's a pity I didn't upload that first.

Good eye contact pose and location, the only problem I can see is the skin looks a little to cold (in WB terms) to me. Maybe it's just picking up the blue of the dress but the skin looks bluey on my screen.

Agree with Chris on this one, cracking pose and the same for the eye contact, makes the model look strong and in control.
Was this shot in RAW? A quick tweak on the white balance would add a little warmth to the skin tones.

Thanks for the comments. It was quite difficult shooting in there as there was very little light, and the only light from behind. I had to do a lot of camera settings to get it to come to life. It maybe has a slight blueness to it, but I don't mind that personally. It could be reflecting from the dress. It was shot RAW, so I may try and have another fiddle. Smile

Version 2 is a new warmer version; I think it needed a little warmth (thanks mattwaggie for the suggestion).

I think the No2 is the better it somehow comes across as more naturally toned. Cracker of a shot though.
