You have caught the style of lighting called Rembrandt lighting Barbara, and very well done.

Rembrandt Lighting is a lighting technique that is used in studio portrait photography. It can be achieved using one light and a reflector, or two lights, and is popular because it is capable of producing images which appear both natural and compelling with a minimum of equipment. Rembrandt lighting is characterized by an illuminated triangle under the eye of the subject, on the less illuminated side of the face. It is named for the Dutch painter Rembrandt, who often used this type of lighting.

Good moody lighting here.
And yes,I can understand the difficulties getting the right formula.
As a kid I never did get a decent glass of Creamola Foam.
I always put too much or too little of it in the glass !!

I think this is very well done Barbara - good to see Trevor's comment so that we can recognise this again.
I'm a little unsure of the light bit below her face (like fingers). If this were darkened/cloned out - it would just leave the face to focus on.
Wonder what others think?
