yes, you might have seen this in another setting.
but I would appreciate feedback on this version, as I am considering this for competition very soon...
It looks rather like "inflight" but with the eye makeup changed and the reflections on the lower lip gone.
OK if i'm looking for reasons not to choose it as a comp winner - and i'm being over picky here as you work is one of those i aspire too.
The reflection on the top lip is very dominant and almost square, her left eye (as we view it here) is black but the other is blue.
maybe light pink nail polish similiar to her lips would add impact? the light on her left forarm seems to transition from white to grey with quite a hard line - could the grey be lightened just a tad? this may also help keep her arm seperate from the background on that side.
Some other crazy ideas - could the hair be made more blond to match the dress - more like that odd blond curl on top of her head?
Could you clone in more mesh over her left arm to make it seem joined to the dress, the hair is so dominant - could it be blurred just a tad on the far LHS to lessen its impact?
Feel free to ignore all the above as i'm still quite amatuer and have no ide what judges may like.
Best wishes anyway,
I do wonder why you have chosen this one for your competition. I just looked back a few weeks... and Gold.... and Inflight especially are more eye catching I think.
Having said that all your work is exceptional.
I like the angle, pose, expression, clarity - all important dynamics, but I feel the skin colour is too flat (it's almost neutral with the background) Its greyness drags the other aspects down. Also the background clean patch behind the right arm (to the left as we look at it) makes it look a bit like a bad cut out. I would clone that area over with a textured portion.
Looking at this I was imagining the name velvet referred to her skin. I really like it and do think it works.
Love her hair & pose,the bg suits the 'crinkled' look of her dress.
I think Stuart & Pete have valid points,I have nothing to add of any further significance.
really appreciate the comments, and I have more or less decided to leave out both this and the others from this shoot
I have a few others that might stand out more, I hope
