Looks like a photograph of a starlet from a 50's film poster (apart from the fact that she's naked, obviously Grin). Kie the tension in the shot.

Have to say I'm not really enjoying this or the last one. I am struggling to pinpoint why. I think it's beacuse they are a bit dark, and lacking contrast.

Thanks everyone. Martin, I see your point. I deliberately went for a low key look, which an increase in contrast didn't suit on this. I think the main problem here is the black backgrounds - increasing the contrast means she's leaning on nothing as the backgrounds disappear. Slightly lighter backgrounds would enable me to boost the contrast more effectively probably. As it stands just increasing the highlight makes the whol thing look odd. I liked the outcome and the mood, it just needs to be tweaked with a better background, or even a softer, larger light source (this was a beauty dish) - maybe a closer softbox would have been better. Thanks for your honesty (as always!).
