Its a nice, competent shot. The lighting has done what you wanted.

For me, the expression isnt working to engage the shooter or the viewer. A slight smile, a tilt of the head to one side, all would help.

In addition, theres a slight red cast overall which isnt bad, but can look better without it.

Ive loaded a few mods, - one change in al is that Ive added canvas to the right to place her off centre, and Ive made changes to the tone, sharpness, and expression in mods 2 and three.


Hope this is helpful,

regards

Willie

Whilst the composition is classic, the problem with this technically excellent image is that she looks fed up. You need a bit of a smile, and I get the impression she doesn't like me. (Some, surprisingly, don't!)

Thanks so much for the honest options.

I've other where she does have her tilted to one side but I felt they didn't work, will go back and have another look after seeing Willies mods.
I agree, a nice smile would have been better. I'll also have a look at the piercing and mole.

. . . Really ! ?

Seriously, I think it's all been said and it's an excellent shot.
This is technically very well done but yes, she does look a bit cheesed off!
