Beautiful woman, great compostion of 1/3rds. Excellent eye contact with complimentary single source of light for perfect skin tones. Happy to see its not airburshed to death. Leman

Thanks Leman, i like to keep smoothing to a minimum now as i'm no longer a fan of the super smooth doll look.

Fine shot. Being picky, as that is what I think you would want:

- Perhaps a little more space above the head
- Eyes slightly more central in their sockets
- Shooting down on the model, to make the nostrils flattering
- Soften the creases on the neck and cheek-bone

Yes thank you Michael i appreciate it when suggestions on improvments are made.
I take on board your last 3 suggestions but as for the composition not leaving more space above the head this is just a style i like to shoot when doing horizontal portrait shots.

Thanks again Smile

I like this a lot. I reminds me very much of a couple of shots I have in my PF. Similar light, similar look, similar composition. I am a fan of the close crop to be honest, I like it when you get drawn into the face or figure...the eyes have it, so why not focus them? Its a personal compositional thing I think, some like it, some don't. Not all is right or wrong. Just difference in taste and thats a GOOD thing. But this is really lovely. I guess if there is anything about this that I have to be a tiny, tiny bit picky (and blimey, this really is trying to achieve perfection on something thats nearly there!) is that I might have got her to bring her chin down just a touch....as Miptog said, its not her nose and nostrils as such, but the angle does accentuate them a little, so bringing the chin down would level this out, yet you could keep the same expression and mood with it. Miptog said about shooting down to alleviate this...which is one way, but this can also have a slightly distorting effect if not done correctly, so best to move the head in accordance I reckon. Again, personal opinion on boths sides, neither written in stone! Smile But this is lovely. Nice, natural, simple, good light, lovely model (as always), nicely composed.....a really nice image!

Like the details and good eye contact in this Iain, works well with the space to the side. Don't think there is anything wrong with the crop.

A fine shot, it could be used in advertising with the right caption on the left side,
