Great shot. I have given it a little bit of a rotation in PS for a more dramatic diagonal and cropped in more tightly. (see mod) However, your version has a nice open airy feel to it.

I can see where you're coming from, bill, re mod.
thanks for the mod

This is a wonderfully smooth shot Steve. The lighting is very delicate and really brings out those lovely textures and shades.

Beautiful girl too - obviously a very happy one as well judging by the expression on her face.

Classy shot.


Thanks again for all the great advice BTW. Much appreciated.
The lighting and natural pose of the model look perfect here.

A diagonal composition would be an improvement and I dislike the hot background, careless lighting IMO, or lack of control of ambient light.. the ribs are a discordant note on the rest.

Thanks for your comments!!!

The lighting is exactly how I wanted it, nikon5700ite!!
Source was natural light, Janmsa!
fairly evenish spill from two roof windows directly above subject. I wanted a high key effect on WHITE! duvet, so she was floating in a sea of whiteness (like clouds, but obviously no real duvet can look like clouds!!!) and a smoooooth natural skin tone!
One modelling light to lighten the face slightly.

although the conversion was done in ps, I prefer to do as little digital alteration as possible.
So I could have taken out the ribs in ps, but I thought, no, it's all about natural here!!

For those who are interested, all the digital manipulation here is...
-conversion to tif from raw file, "cloudy" white balance, 0 sharpening, all other settings on auto or default.
-conversion to B+W (hue method) from colour tif file.
-Slight top and tail level manipulation of the histogram to bring the contrast where I wanted it.
-Re-size for upload, and a sharpening because people tend to say "too soft" or "unfocussed" if you don't!!

Lovely shot, very peaceful.
Superb tone and what a beautiful lady.

Very nice glamour shot Steve with your beautiful model enveloped in a sea of white duvet which makes for a beautiful soft feel to the blend but not without good body and facial details. The balance of exposure is perfect.

i think you should leave it as it is well done
