Not sure about the crop down the sides of her arms, but this is quite stunning. Best use of colour I've seen in a long while.

That is classy. Rich and vibrant colour the expression in her eyes really draws you in. I might be wrong but there are some probs where her hair encroaches the BG with desaturation and loss of detail.

thanks a lot for all yer comments melanie i think what it is is she has VERY short layers on the top with lots of backcombing which might well have dulled the hair hence making it a bit more see through and not as reflective Smile she should have had longer hair lol oh that and had to redo the whole top as they hadnt bothered to iron it lol it was thier 1st shoot so was a learning curve for them as they done all hair and make up themselves Smile

Vibrant colours makes this just leap of the page, Stu. I knew you liked this one from these shoots, but your post processing has worked wonders.

Lovely colour and lighting, and great eye contact, but the skin looks so plastic, like a computer generated character.

Well done on the HC, great pic. Is this a competition shot? Would clean up the hairline and fill in those gaps if it is.
