Great image Johnny love the pose and eye contact, a shame the light on her arm is blown but still a fine image.

Darren.

Yeah, got a couple liket that Darren...the light was pretty strong and couldn't get it right through the window to light her face enough without making a compromise with the light somewhere....a bit annoying and I might try "burning" it later, but I liked it all the same. Thanks Darren, appreciated! Smile

This is so nearly a really eye catching photo.
But it is spoiled by the knuckle, it looks ugly. Maybe you could clone it out.
As has been said, too bright on the arm , and the face could do with a tad toning down.
But I reallly like the colours and the pose, the tats and the attitude.

All fair points Martin. Unfortunately my PS skills probably wouldn't stretch to successfully and cleanly cloning out the knuckles seamlessly. Wish I knew how to properly do that. The arm
I might be able to "burn" a little, as with the face in places. But as I am so poor at post processing I am scared of making a hash of the photo. May have a go and see what I can come up with.

its all about the eye contact. It lures you in and all other points raised are forgivable

Another brilliant image from this shoot John. Great natural pose captured. Agree with above comments re her thumb and burnt out arm, but does not distract too much from this capture too much. I like the fact that the lighting looks both soft and harsh at the same time. Good work. One of your best.

Oh just noticed. Congrats on your RC!
