your lady does the mood of the picture well

I think this shadow on the wall shot is better than your last upload Allex as it is very clear that the shadows are part of the pic. With the last shot it was not so apparent whether the shadows were there deliberately or not. This works very well. Perhaps a crop at the bottom to cut her off just below the knee - see mod. It looks a bit more comfortable that way rather than starting down the leg and then cutting her off half way down.

Best wishes

I do like the effect of the hard shadow like positive and negative. I like this raw look that it gives. Which is different for this picture which I as in a different mood

Very much a "cheesecake" shot Allex. I like Catherines crop, - looks better. There is an issue though with white balance and skin tone, unless she is actually pink. There is a strong Magenta/red/blue cast to the skin tone. I would also like to see some highlights in her hair, an theres lots there if you lift the shadows a little.


Ive loaded a mod with skin colour closer to what looks right to me, added more detail to her har, and cropped just below the knee like Catherine has done. I also added a little space top and left.


Hope this is helpful,



Regards

A great shot, not sure on the cut off point under the knee, not sure it works for me personally, be careful not to over expose the subject, the model is on the verge of being over exposed.
the skin to me looks maybe too pale and flat looking, perhaps a pinch of contrast would help here as I have done in my mod and last thing i did was unsharp mask a little too.
Got to say cannot really criticise much at all, it is a great image and good pose from model.
Have to say i do like Willies version and have learnt from this guy myself, so his input is very valid in my humble opinion.

Nice image, but close to over lit - I notice some of your other similar images have this effect. You give us no info to go on which makes it difficult to help, but that element of over lighting can lead to a magenta cast.

Do you use a flash meter. I do and, providing it is used correctly - incident at the subject position, pointing at the main light source, will give the correct exposure. Otherwise your LCD should give a good indication.

I'm assuming single flash head to the right. Possibly direct or a silver brolly? Difficult to comment without knowing.
