Great lighting, if I were to make any criticism it would be to dodge out the slight light on the floor to make it even more graphic, and maybe boost the highlights a just little on the shin/foot. But they are minor quibbles and it works really well without them anyway

Like the lighting and pose but think a crop to above the knee will give a more powerful image with this lighting.
Just a suggestion

I think this is amazing, the lighting is excellent! I agree with the light patches on the floor but other than that - superb Grin

The lighting is just about right but I would give it a square crop as the lower shadowed section of the image is a distraction.

This is an excellent shot, subtle lighting, and an example of less is more for sure.


I agree with all the above, - its an image that can work with many crops. The floor area is certainly better darker, - just paint in black.

What I find is that I would like a little more room between her head and the top of the frame, no matter how its cropped.


Ive loaded 3 mods, one from the suggestion made by Richard, and two more, one the original in a 19:6 format to move her head further from the top.



Well done,




Regards

I love it as it is because it gives a sort of candid feel to it.

Excellent lighting and pose

This is rather nice. You don't say what the lighting was. Looks like a single toplight, possibly tungsten. For me, either crop to the top of the body, or add a littlr more light to the lower body. Not enough to detract from that on her face though.
