This a copy of the work I posted yesterday, just cropped and slightly lightened... I think it works quite well like this.
I try as much as possible not to have to adjust my work - in that Im hoping that if I can teach myself to 'catch' images correctly there will be no need to shop them.

A fixed focal lens, 85mm? at F1.8? no crisp image? You should have used a 100mm fixed focal macro lens and focused sharply at F4 to F5.6 to cover the depth of field properly given the model's positioning - also some soft play with proper positioning of light would have flattered the model's sensual features more. These lenses are as crisp as it gets, be more patient and get distance so your subject is comfortable and relaxed, don't over-crowd her, then focus on the composition, focus crisply (these lenses from canon give you no excuse to not get a crisp clear focus) and then take the shot. With all that constructive criticism, a good model I must admit.

I think that with a fixed 85mm lens it's literally an impossibility to overcrowd ones model don't you think Marius?
And given that the light is natural and that the model had, without prompting positioned herself where she was, all of your observations are unfounded.
