Lovely tones and eye contact in this Richard.....

If I may get technical slightly here though (and forgive me on this as you already know the parsity of my PS skills....lol!), but there does seem a bit of a broken halo around her where I guess you have enhanced the background tones and colours or have altered her to make her stand out a little? The most obvious part would around her left (our right) hip and down that same side under her arm.....the shadow shouldn't be broken there I am guessing as she is close enough to the wall for her body to overlap her own shadow, so guess this is a slight process artifact maybe? If I am wrong, then please, forgive me.....like I said, I can see things, I can't DO things.... Smile But other than that, as I said on that "other" site, I think this is a cracker for the tones, the look, the pose, model and light....all spot on!

Great model and pose and I like the soft shadow but I also see the halo and find it inoffensive but wonder if this was deliberate. A

HI Johnny, your are right about the halo but beleive it or not I did processed that way to give the outling to the shape on that side of the body, and to just seperate her from the wall a bit more. (See was not right up against the wall)
Thanks for taking the time to critique I will see if I can do another version without it, if I get the time.

No problem Richard, its not really a distraction, I just didn't know if it was something that was overlooked by accident, done on purpose (for the reason you said) or if it was an upload artifact that sometimes occurs on here. Thanks for the explanation, totally get it now... Smile

Much as I like the contrasting blues of the bg/surround and the warm skin tones of the model, the halo Johnny mentions distracts me also. In my eyes, the shadow is enough to give some depth from the wall.
Other than that, a great image - good pose and composition.
