Just an extra thought, the dress maybe a little "clipped" where the light hits it strongly. The 50d has a function called Highlight Tone Priority. Did you have this switched on as it greatly helps stop this happening. This is a link to digital pro talk, they explain really well what it can do (I hope I am allowed to do this)

Hope you dont mind the comment, but I still think this is a superb shot...Jerry

Lovely portrait and very sensual curves. The shadow on the right side of her nose (well her left, picture right) is the only distraction.

hello Richard,
you had me confused there for a minute 2 uploads together, i guess you have just joined e2.

this upload is a pleasure to critique because it is a genuinly nice image as well as a stunning portrait of a beautiful model.

i would normally have left it at that, and would be happy if it were mine but since you have requested a crtiique i will have to delve deeper to pick up on those tiny niggley details that all pictures have if we look close enough.

looking at the image you appear to have tilted the camera to a nice jaunty angle, this has added drama by the diagonal lines created and prevented the whole thing being split into bands, the window top left however leaves me pondering on whether or not it should have been included, half of me sees a reference to the light source and wants to retain it and the other tidy side of me wants to crop it away as it without question pulls my eye from the face.

the face, expression light modeling and skin tones are sublime. however the whites in the dress are edging towards overexposure and somehow i feel a little uncomfortable with that, it would have been possible to underexpose slightly to retain that and still bring the other details up in post processing but if it was taken commercially in stead of for personal use then you may not have had the time.

my only other comment would be that i have a personal dislike for text on an image but that of course is your choice.

ill be honest here and say i love this image and its as nice a portrait as i have seen for a while.

best regards.
Phil

Its a nice shot, not sure about where you cut the shot off at though, may have went a bit lower to better represent the torso. I like the window light, but some of the highlights are lost in the dress, maybe consider dropping a stop or two.

I do find this a steep learning curve and enjoy the feedback. Humbled by the fact you guy bother to put pen to paper (so to speak) in replying to my posts. Thank you for your time and effort and great feedback learning all the time. RB Point taken about the lighting, drop of details, and even the new info about what the camera can do to help! Smile

very special image that am sure the model/bride will like lots

my only suggestion is to lose the window portion top left, and reduce the dark area bottom right

fab work

regards
