Stunning image. The eyes certainly hold the viewer. Nice pose using the arrms to take the viewers eys to the model's face. Nice and simple good colours and well framed with the black line.

Like it.

Regards.

Gavin

(quoted comment removed)
your composition state that, you have emphasized the bust area over the facial area which leads the viewer eyes to that area.
if you were aiming for the eyes contact, you should have asked her to lean forward
the lighting is soft but thats what you expect with this white background.
other than that, there is nothing special in the work
anyway, its a matter of opinions but thats the frank comment about your work

It is hi-key and I do not see any softness in the image at all The arms draw the eye into her eyes and not the bust area. If she had leant forward the perspective would have been out completely and if her arms had not been where they were then i am sure the title would have been different. The focus point is on the eyes and at F11 in a studio focus is retained throughout with dof. The lighting is a pair of softboxes front set at F11 and a pair of larger softboxes on the background at F22. Standard for hi key, so saying the lighting is soft is beyond me.

How would you have lit it Mo? I look forward to your expert advice.

the elbows blend into the so called hidden treasurest, not your best work IMHO but each to their own - yes the eyes are beautiful and as your title implies this is for me what the picture is about - it might work better Richard if you cropped more from the lower part of the picture - I am trying to be honest and give a true opinion here.

Beautiful composition Richard. For me the pose and the lighting is first rate. I would give it an award if I had one.

I like this one also. A simple pose but one I don't remember seeing it before, very well executed! The model has great skin, presumably you've done some work to make it look so flawless. I must get my 'nifty fifty' out for portrait photos, this looks very sharp indeed. I'd heard that the 50mm tends to sometimes make peoples' features appear distorted or 'bulbous' bu it works just fine in this portrait. Smile

I'd like to see this pose rotated to 45 degrees and think it would give a different and possibly more interesting perspective.

Keep 'em coming Richard!
All the best, Tony

Captivating eyes so sharp. Without doubt the focal point of the shot to me
Fair enough she seems to other fine attributes, but the focus on the eyes and lips is superb
Well done mate, really good shot........with one very minor comment....you have cropped a bit off the top of her head......

For me the eyes certainly hold you and I do agree that she has great skin tone. The pose is very tasteful and I think that you draw the viewers eye upwards with the hands resting under the chin. A very subtle image Richard and beautifully presented. Lou
