I like the pose, and the model is very attractive.

A few observations.

ISO 1600 was likely a little high, though there no visible noise at this size.

The skin smoothing software has caused an issue with here eyes, and a couple of other places; if you look closely at the whites of her eyes, you can see that the red facial colour has bled into the eyes; it has also bled into the blue at the top of her shoulder. It may e just a case of fine tuning the programme.

The skin tone is very yellow biased, and a little underexposed; the levels/curves may show overexposed, or close to it, but that because the red and yellow channels are over-saturated; once this is addressed, the image easily responds to +0.8 with no difficulty.

The composition has her head rather high in the frame, - and it works well also with some space above her head to lower it.

Loaded 2 mods. You can see a difference in her eyes, and thats simply because red was desaturated in the eyes only. Nothing else done to her eyes.

The colour balance for the skin was adjusted separately, along with exposure.

See what you think.
