Love the styling, love the pose, beautiful model, however I do feel that the lighting is somewhat harsh. This is particularly evident on the models nose and forehead, this might be due to to higher a setting on your modelling lamp.

This could be right out of the 1950's. Well done.

Ive downloaded this for a closer look. Theres something about it thats not quite right. I like the model and the pose in general. I also wanted to check her face and exposure in general.

So what I notice is that the colour saturation is very high; Ive applied a -20 ti the saturation adjustment, and the sweater, which is almost glowing, becomes closer to what you would expect.

This did help somewhat. I narrowed it down to her left hand; it appears very large, seems about the same size as her face, and is taking attention away from her pretty face. Theres sort of best practice with hands close to the face that suggests the hand should be seen only side on, for this reason. I think the overall image would look better with a change of the left hand position.

Theres a very strong red line under her chin caused by reflected light from the sweater, and I would suggest de saturating this area a little, even after an overall desauration. More light from the front might have helped out here by reducing the shadow.

Something to try the next time.

Hope this is helpful,
