Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated and to Matt, (Herger88) for his UA very much appreciated.
Finish the year off with another head shot image.

Model is Ella Rose.
Lighting: single gridded spot.
Processed in Light room (first go with this as a raw processor using a colour beach bypass)

Thanks for looking and this will be my last upload for a while as I having a short break to Spain.

So wishing everyone a Happy New Year and all the best for 2013

Regards Richard

Nicely titled as your model does have a far away look, Richard: I am not competent to comment on this sort of image but all I'd say is that it strikes me as being a very professional set up and shot.

All the best for the New Year Richard.
