Crow fight

Crow fight by NeilS

Fantastic set Neil - each shot being good as a standalone image.
Always a pleasure to see your work.

These pics remind me more of something from Grimm fairy tales than The Prisoner -
maybe I'm culturally distorted!

Good angle - I think this is a Buick Wildcat, going by the image on the licence plate, but not sure.
Nice image.

Thanks for your excellent points about softening the light, i think i was a bit hopeful that the ceiling bounce would work better than it did and the softer lights would have helped me with the facial shadows i had to process out - I shall look at brolly stands and speedlite holders - only 1 is a canon speedlite the other two are much cheaper yongnuo manual versions. all on yongnuo triggers. I also have a large bendable bounce card i could use (Rogue flash bender large).

Don't rule this idea out Stuart - I've had some very good results and response/feedback to a couple of images where I've used this technique, and I was bouncing flash from on camera!
However, experiment with the technique, as it can create quite a nice butterfly lighting look for front on shots.
Also start with 1 and build on that.

I think i get a bit lazy with posing and if the model is confident then i let them look after that bit - that's wrong and i should keep direction going. That would work with the off centre idea too.

If you use a good, experienced model in any genre, you should be able to let them look after that bit, so that you can keep on top of what you're doing.
Occasionally, you may need to give some direction for something specific, and let the model interpret that idea.

Do try kneeling or crouching for full length shots(and 3/4 length), as it only serves to enhance the model's figure, however tall she might be.
With a fixed studio set up with a floor, try moving round 30-45 degrees to give the room(skirting/floor) some perspective(vanishing point).
Regarding processing, maybe try inverting the mask(black), and then painting the adjustment into specific areas with a soft white brush, instead of using the adjustment for the entire image?

I missed the original upload Hugh, and whilst I like both, I prefer the original - personal taste and all that.
I do like this type of composition with cars, something I'd like to do more of.
Fantastic car also!

Great looking wagon - well captured.
I prefer V2 as I'm not into HDR 'style' processing on cars, although it seems popular!
Can't make out the make/model?
