The Bride's Maid

By trivets12  
This was taken at a wedding on Saturday. This young bridesmaid loved posing and I took several shots of her, this being my favourite. The light on her hair is from the room lighting and we used a reflector to lift the shadows a bit.
She put her hand up to her cheek naturally, not necessarily what I would have chosen, but what I find a little distracting is the catchlights in the eyes - are they off putting as they are low in the eye, or am I being fussy?

Nice portrait. I love her expression. Personally, I think the catch lights work well and give the capture life. Good work Smile
