A good effort - a lot of the elements are right. My slight problem with the pose is that the girl seems to be staring at her arm as if she has just spotted some dirt or something, and is not very happy about it! Wink In addition, the stray hairs at armpit level could have been tidied up before the shot.

Also the skin tone looks a bit cool, and the shiny bits around the nose and in the ears need de-shining. I've uploaded a mod.

The capture is a good one, but I think some points that follow will enhance the shot further. As shown in my mod (1)

I would be inclined to crop quite tightly, after all the image is about the profile of the model, so by cropping tighter it concentrates on it.

I have done some sympathetic skin smoothing, that is subtle, and doesn't look too fake.

I have diffused areas to add softness.

I tidied up the hair by the armpit.

Adjusted levels slightly.

Cleaned up the background.

Mod (2) is warmer in tone.

I hope that helps,

Nick

I would have done a similar crop to the mods, and warmed skin too. Would be good to know your thoughts and intent behind this shot

Thank you all , just like to say the shot is a straight conversion from raw with no adjustments made what so ever!

Mods, especially No. 3 , are excellent suggestions.

If you were thinking about using the negative space aspect of the shot, there isn't enough of it as it stands, IMHO.

Perhaps another strong shot would have been her looking horizontally across the frame.

Still quite nice though Luis. Well done,
CHeers, Goggz

What a lovely angle. She really has a great profile.
The modifications you have made really help, it helps the viewer to concentrate on the angle. She is very beautiful.
