This portrait has a 3D quality, extremely well done. The small blobs of blue in the BG are not disturbing except the one over her RH shoulder I think should removed. The pose is great, the hair falling over her eyes is just perfect.

Beautiful work Richard, I can't praise it enough.   Posted: 03/05/2020 20:16:02

Richard, Great detail and skin tones. The white polkadots are mesmerizing. The lighting enhances and highlights her hair on both sides without causing her skin tones to wash out. Well done.   Posted: 03/06/2020 16:13:52

This is a very nice portrait; very sharp. I like the way her hair comes over her right eye. Your two light setup produced some very nice lighting; especially on her hair. I might add a very think border.   Posted: 03/10/2020 15:38:54

Richard, this is a fabulous image. Your handling of the model, combined with the wonderful background, makes it almost 3D. And, you captured her expression in a way that makes it a very thoughtful photograph.

Often I find that it's important to have a model looking at the camera. However, her pensive expression is perfect for her downward glance. There's nothing I can offer in the way of modification. Beautifully done!
