One from a recent session at my home with the studio lights.
Just one softbox this time with a reflector opposite.

I do have one weeny niggle with this image,let's see if anyone else has the same one Wink

Yep,I replaced the bg which was boring Wink

Hmmm,not sure if it needs an adult tag...someone let me know if it does please.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

An excellent image, the bg textures work well. Doesn't need an adult tag for me.

Good choice of backgroud texture in this, like the mystery the pose creates, my only niggle is the rings which seem to draw the eye

Could it be the wedding & engagement ring are on the wrong hand?

A excellent image, very tastefully composed, and wonderfully captured, I like the background too. No need for an adult tag IMHO.
Well done Janet...

Like the denim type background which does accent the subject. I would have got rid of the rings out, but, thats only my opinion.
Nice and sharp too, cracking lens that.

Very intriguing pose that works really well and I never noticed the tip of the nose on my little laptop monitor.

Hmmmm......
Quote: the tip of the nose under the rim of the hat

Can't say that it bothered me, but I think now it's been mentioned I'd have tried to just stretch the rim of the hat down over it, relatively easy in PSP or PS. Think the rings on the wrong hand is more of a problem, was it mirrored?....Again though easily cured. Don't get me wrong Janet though, it really isn't a problem. Still a great image.....

No adult tag needed -- less showing here than we would see at the beach.
VERY nice shot. Great lighting -- thanks for sharing what you used.

BG is perfect -- especially with the denim. Nose tip or rings don't bother me.
No niggles in my book.

I was gonna say the blue outline on the hat rim RHS...for the niggle but agree about stretching the hat in PS to cover the nose. The rings don't bother me.

I like this - strong and powerful. I noticed the nose but it is such a tiny thing - I wear my rings on the wrong hand too - if I wear them at all - so that could never be a problem
