Morning, the lighting is just fine Mo as is the model and the quality just not to keen on the twisted legs.

Nice lighting and model. I guess you have to use what you've got with regards to the chair. The problem I have with this more than anything though is that the pose is very awkward looking and there is no eye contact.

Thanks guys, to sum it up the lighting is ok, the pose is iffy, and the chair is a no no,
Personally I quite liked the pose, but I suppose its is down to personal taste.
Zander you must have eagle eyes, I asked mel to look about 6 inches above the lens to make her eyes a litlle bigger, well spotted

thanks for the comments much appreciated

Nothing wrong with the chair.
Hand and foot angles are not to my taste.
Expression is VERY sexy. (to get that amount of white in the eyes and still keep contact - get yourself a couple of inches higher, ask her to drop her chin a fraction (but make sure there is no double chin) and look at the camera......you get all the white AND eye contact).

Hope you like the modification

The photo quality and lighting are definitely pro level. Her expression and outfit look good too. She doesn't seem to know what to do with her free hand though!
