You have obviously gone to a lot of care with hair,make up and lighting with this lovely model and got it just right. However the shot is let down by the terrible pose. Ashleigh is just standing there stiff and uncomfortable looking totally uninterested.

Colin thanks sincerely for your comment, the pose was mimiced on one currently running in many of the glossies of Kate moss. I'll let Ashleigh know that in your opinion she didnt quite pull it off...

Love the lighting, hair etc but i think Colin has got it right - the pose looks somewhat awkward. The mono really works though!

thank you both for the comments. I value all comments both positive and negative and am very pleased that people are being honest.

I do think there is a real split opinion on this and I can totally understand why.

I would to see some other photos of this shoot with better poses because the theme has great potential.

As said nothing to quibble with technically and my vote is for that reason but as a pose and an image it doesn't work for me either.

I always find interesting how the public perceive certain shots and how when modeling there seems to be a certain look that many models immediately adapt to as they know what works and what sells so to speak, that said its always fun trying out new poses and like yourself often look to other photos for inspiration. Sometime they work other times they dont and often its all down to the model themselves. Kate Moss (not one of my fav models) has a look all her own and in a pose like this would look just fine, Ash is just to dam glamourous to pull this pose of and the other shots in you fine PF are examples of how good she is.
More power to those how try something different once in a while.

The image drew me in, so its definitely got something, I think the detached look works well.

I don't find anything wrong with the pose. It's rough and borders on high fashion. Maybe the presentation of the image could help it along? Maybe with some layered texture, contrast and grain? Just a thought.

Colin, hopefully I'll have a few more processed and uploaded in the coming days. Thanks for coming back and i do value your opinion.

Thanks samsalt.

Victor I reckon you have probably hit the nail on the head re: glam, this is a good learning experience for me.

kaybee, you bet, she has some fantastic attributes and is a lovely girl with a great attitude to boot.

comma, detached is a good word to describe this, thank you.

Matt, some excellent suggestions, I'll certainly give that a go.

Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to contribute here.
