Another shot taken at last week's Focus In Imaging. Tried to convert this to mono but not sure about it so I thought I would stick it up for mods as I am trying to learn what looks right etc here...thansk for looking.

A nicely produced image here with really nice tonal balance throughout and a good and viewable pose. I do feel that this may work a little better with a slightly tighter crop though.
It seems to me that the model is leaning over slightly, not sure if this was intentional, but I have uploaded a mod with a tighter crop.
I like the pose, I like the end result re processing. For me Al, she's too central, and I would crop to one side and use dead space on the other to balance the image....just my opinion for what it's worth.
Fine shot Alan. As my PF will show I am not too knowledgeable about portraiture so all I can say is I find the shot most appealing.
a few blown highlights but otherwise a well taken shot, I like Andy's mod - bit of a learning curve I feel and one I do not have much experience of
A very pleasing portrait of a beautiful girl. A little over exposed in my opinion but that doesn't detract from the image.
Lots of useful tips already, - the main one being that its usually best to have the subject off centre. In addition, shes too low in the frame, - her eyes will look best on about a third.
Its a little hot in spots, reflection from her skin, so in the mod I reduced exposure by using a multiply layer at 40%. Youve got good catch lights in her eyes, and I like how her head is tilted.
Apart from that cropped tightly. and increased the tilt of her head slightly; increased contrast, sharpened a little.
Hope this helps,
looks like youve had some useful tips here.like the off central crops of the 1st and 3rd mod.lesley
Thanks all, some great tips and mods. As most would know this sort of photography is not my usual thing but it is something I would like to try in the future at some point.
Technically nice and a good conversion, but why all the space. Crop no. 3 is good - not sure about the other two, but I would come in even closer on that attractive face.
Shows like focus are not condusive to good portraiture and as such you have done rather well. I will post a shot taken at Focus of one of these portraiture scrums - an absolute melee which I keep out of.
