    Well done Andy.

    You have to realise that quite often those that get plenty of votes normally ALWAYS get plenty of votes because they each belong to the same "mutual appreciation society". You know what I mean...I'll like yours if you like mine. You see it all the time with comments such as "great image" when it clearly isn't.

    Take heart from the fact that yours have been hard one and are genuine.
    Have another and good luck.

    Hi Tim
    Your profile says "any advice would be welcome" and as such I would like to be truthful with you. I dont know how much notice to pay to the observations of others but the truth is that much of the "compliments" stated here are falsehoods.

    The lady here may be beautiful but I am afraid your image doesn't portray her as such. Also the lighting isn't "great" and this isn't " a great piece of work".

    The reasons for me saying this is that the eyes are in deep shadow. From a distance she looks like she is wearing a Zorro mask and if you zoom in the eyes take on a guoulish appearance. Other undesirable elements resulting from poor lighting are the dark, hard shadows under the chin, across her arm and also that in the pelvic region. The latter gives rise to the horrendous display of the bones in her hips. It makes her look as though she has had a tummy tuck but the sides have become undone, with the skin all dropping down. I don't know what has happened around the lady's left wrist. If it was there, as opposed to something resulting from a bad big of cloning, I would have either tried to tone down the light area or have had her place her arm in such a way as it wasn't visible. Finally I have to say that the background does help either. It gives the impression that she is part of a nude police line up.

    I note that you used natural light and I would suggest that that a reflector angled front would have helped a lot here.

    As with any photograph, the observations of others are always subjective and I don't know what was your photographic vision when taking this image. For me, the resultant image is not a beautiful, well photographed one in spite of what others might say here. Ask yourself this question. If you were her would you like this particular image.?

    In conclusion I want to assure you that I have not set out to be deliberately negative but I just felt that you deserved some honest opinion and, if you agree, I hope it helps going forward Tim.
