Hi Kay , welcome to epz and thanks for your comment .

This is a lovely first upload, very nicely exposed, is it a self portrait ?

One little observation though is the triangular shape bottom left is a distraction and might be better cloned out in photoshop or a crop up to lose it.

she has a beautiful look, you've captured this well ...

I find the light coming from the right a little harsh burning out on her back, face & causing shadow & slight burnout on her leg, this I find distracting it pulls your eye away from her soft dreamy look ...

still a beautiful work, welcome & hope to see more of your work SmilePaddy

This is a very beautiful portrait, nice tones and lighting. My observation is that I feel the knee/leg is too strong an element in the overall frame and the more I look at it, the more I feel it detracts from the main subject. I also think the blemishes on the arm could be removed by spot healing or cloning. I think it is great effort though and look forward to more...cheers Andy I

Direct stare, lovely face and a pleasing composition on the diagonal. Your knee is much too big in the frame though .... lol, nothing personal but it's just a big white triangle that does detract from the shot IMO. An excellent first upload though .... you should have seen my first. Too late though I deleted it Wink

Welcome to EPZ Kay great image to start with a little burning in on the lighter areas would strengthen the shot but it's a beauty.
