Hello Kamil my friend.

It"s nice to see that Covid has not kept you idle, I hope you and your family remain safe. I expect the satin sheets to be a big hit with your models.
I intend to vote for your picture because I think it is good but allow me to make some comments and provide my honest feedback as the site offers us the chance to exchange opinions and generate meaningful discussion.

Until this moment I have not seen any other comment on it so I guess I am either mistaken or I am the first to spot. Knowing the high quality of your images I trust you are a tactile photographer who wants to represent their models in an a nice way or a way that helps the best features of their beauty to shine or the less amazing features to silence. I think that the way Anna"s legs are crossed emphasises their volume so I would probably asked her to raise one leg only, in a pose that is stamped as playful, carefree and mind wandering...

The use of the f1.4 lens would be a bliss for every portrait photographer with the amount of light it can collect while shooting indoors but here I cannot be sure if the focus is accurate on her eye lashes rather than her fringe... Earlier on today I said that sharpness is not all that important but I have a feeling you would like her to look pin sharp there. It could be that you may need to make the focusing area become smaller in the camera settings.

I am not sure if you have used any skin smoothing in the post processing but it looks too perfect, or it may just be me, missing the roughness of the film grain. 😞

Best regards from your friend and admirer of your work, pablophotographer

That is good comment, thank You for that Smile
softness yes, answer is 1600 ISO and specifically m4/3 sensor noise (comparable to 6400 ISO on FF) with at this amount of light available had to boost ISO... and denoise tend to softer image also my "hazed" black&white filter addiotionaly plays with sharpening and sharpening mask sliders in lightroom that makes skin softer too, and yes i apply some -25-35 texture graduated filter based on colour to apply fast and not aggresive skin smoothing.
Here was not enought light to make every pore visible with camera that i have right now, not for living subject Wink

And for leg's same pose shoot from "light" side looks pretty flattering for her, this shoot was done for variety from same pose and because She loved how she looks when seen on back of camera - i do it a lot during session because i think then two peoples look in the same direction they can accomplish much more Smile

This is - as usual - delightful. Pablo makes a good point - her legs in that position are nearly merged together, and so look bigger than I suspect they actually are.

As your camera has image stabilisation, I'd be prepared to let the shutter speed drop a bit if I was using it, allowing a little lower ISO or a slightly smaller aperture to allow for a little focus error (or just having more depth of field).With my Olympus OM-D EM-1, I'd risk going as low as 1/30 with a standard lens on the front.

A wonderful image that works very in mono with the composition.
