This is a lovely idea, with great light and a fine pose.

There are two compositional issues.

First, the viewpoint is quite high, leading to unnatural perspective. This is often the result of (tall) male togs photographing shorter female models. Kneeling gives impressive results: as does going in close with a wide-angle lens and really exaggerating the effect...

Second, a more generous crop to include the shadow of Kellie's hand and all of the leg of the chair would avoid the eye looking for the missing bits. Minor, but if you see it, it distracts.

Finally, I'm guessing this was taken at Brightlights? That looks mightly like one of a pair of trendy but uncomfortable chairs I (deliberately, and with the owners' consent!) left there a week last Saturday... If so, I'm delighted that it's serving well!

Thanks, dudler for the compliments. I take on board your points; wish I had kept her hand shadow and the bottom of the chair leg - as a rule I always try to keep things 'whole' in the frame.
To be honest, though, this was a bit of an afterthought, as I shot it from in front of both of the lights and they were positioned that there was just not enough room for me to capture it all.

Yes indeed, it was shot at Brightlights and Kellie was only there on that night for about 90 mins, shared between 4 togs in 2 outfits. So, we were all pushed for time and changing the lights would have been (rightfully) frowned upon, so I grabbed what I could here.

Thanks for the chairs - yes, they did get a deal of usage last Weds!
