I like the eyes and the lighting but, again, the hand doesn't look in a natural position to me. I hope this comment is of help.

the lighting is almost spot on and the toning is excellent, love the eyes and her head positioning, the vignetting works very well for me too. I do hate the hand position though, so many photographers/models do this and it always looks uncomfortable and false, it just doesn't need to be there, but that's just my pet hate... Cracking work Smile

She has such wonderful eyes, reminds me of someone but I can't get the name into my head. Did you work on the eyes? just a little halo like ring showing.

This is very good, I would of put her hand on her left shoulder but what do I know.
I like her expression and lighting.

Thanks to everyone for your comments and feedback.
Tony it an interesting one around the hand for me it helps balance the shot but can see your point of view.
Dougie- yes there was some work on the eyes - I think the haloing is my error on the dodging and burning.
Regards Richard.

I think the most difficult part of portraits is the placement of hand within the picture space. Good focus and skin tones. Generally a good portraitand much more good points than negatives.

Great portrait. I would have been very happy to have one of myself like this many moons ago.

Hi Richard, Marvellous smooth finish and just the right degree of contrast to get the tonality right, which I think you have done. Its a very fine portrait, well done..
