Curvy Baby!

By trivets12  
This is another shot from Stacey's Mum 'n Tum shoot and she gave her permission for it to be uploaded onto here.
This was shot in her home with white sheets over the large window and also on the floor. I did have to Photoshop a bit of stray furniture from the top left corner! I lit this image with two speedlites but am not sure that I quite nailed it. She had seen this pose in a magazine and wanted me to copy it, though the original image, I think, was shot from directly above the subject but I was unable to do that because of space limitations.
I quite like the image and would appreciate some feedback. She likes the image and has ordered a large print of it, so I guess I must have got something right!

im not that advanced but i would have had a go at cloning the sheet a bit to soften it? Or a closer diagonal crop? or someone with more experience may be able to give a whole load of better advice! come on guys wheres the votes and the comments? shes nice and sharp and i love the style!

I think this is a good shot.
I think that it could be impoved by getting rid of the shoes and perhaps the jewellery though and possibly enhanced by having a black border round the edge of the shot. Nonetheless, a good tasteful pose.

Thanks for your comments. I agree about the shoes, but as I said earlier, she had seen this pose in a magazine and wanted the same shot with shoes. I did try blurring the white sheets a bit more but it seemed to make it look more false - as if I had photographed her and then copied her to a different location. But that may say more about my lack of Photoshop expertise than the layout itself!
