I would say the pose looks a bit awkward but mainly that the middle of her body (prob from neck to the bottom of her dress) looks quite squashed - and I think this is simply due to the colour and style of the dress she is wearing.

I think the angle is definitely one that works and using that lovely detailed floor as a backdrop works as well.

Hope this helps!

Like the lighting and tones in this - thing this pose does work but there is some tension in the model.

I like it and, on the whole, I think it works well. I should mention that this is some way from my own style of photography but I hope my comments come under `alternative perspective' rather than `doesn't know what he's talking about.' Smile

The pose looks natural, though it might be nice to see just a hint of her right arm. I agree with Chris that her torso looks a little squashed. I think it's because the angle of her hips mean that her left side runs almost in a straight line from her armpit to the point where it meets the shadow on the floor, while her right side also runs straight from her shoulder to her hip, and then straight from her hip to her knee. So I think it might help a little if she either shifted her hips or pushed her stomach forward a touch, just to let the curve of her hips and waist show a little.

A couple of other little things. Her cheek is a little dark so getting a little more light in there might be good. And I might apply a bit of a vignette, just to push the eyes away from the lower corners.

Love the background and the beautiful model. Nice soft tones and good lighting.

I think it's a really nice shot. I would have added some fill on the left just to create a little more separation from the floor (her feet start to blend in). Perhaps the alternative would have been to revolve her so that her feet rested on the lighter area?

Anyway, doesn't seem awkward to me, just not contrived which is, IMHO preferable. The arm missing doesn't really detract - it's a fairly obvious flow line behind her, so it's not as if it's been cut off.

The only minor critique I have is for the composition. I'd like to have seen either centralised in a square comp, or moved to the bottom of a portrait comp.

Nice work though.

this works for me, apart from the young woman being attractive! - in that the tones compliment each other, dress/hair/floor - understand re: the comments re: dress/mid torso; be interesting to see a slightly lower viewpoint, perhaps that would help with torso comments

good shot that would have benefit with a bit of fill/reflector onto cheek

Hi John,

I like really this image the model is stunning and she's obviously gotten herself into a comfortable pose to look up at you from your vantage point.
Nicely done Smile

I like the shot, quite like the outfit too. Your model looks quite happy to me, maybe a slightly lower viewpoint would ease the awkwardness.

Great model and pose. Personaly i think the angle is good, I maybe would have moved round to show the other arm and had her a little more relaxed. Great shot though.
