Very strong image Donna. It is probably the strongest one you have posted to date. Most of the things I would look at changing are quite minor; even out the colour and shade of the background and bring a bit more texture back into the sleeves of the black sweater(?)she is wearing (i.e. dodge those areas).

Well done!   Posted: 12/04/2019 09:47:47

I like the emotion youve caught here. Well done. I think id suggest lightening the black sleeve just a touch, as noted above. Additionally, and this might be a result of the size requirements here, but the background and facial tones seem noisy. With 2 off, you might have been able to up the power and drop the iso.   Posted: 12/06/2019 22:56:15

Thank you Manfred and Jim you help me learn so much. I see what your telling me. Thank you for the kind words also. You both are so nice to start with what you like and then what needs to be fixed. Thank you.   Posted: 12/10/2019 15:20:26

I like the irregular placement of the hands. Great job posing.   Posted: 12/16/2019 03:35:44

Good expression, makeup and costuming. This kind of masculine lighting is very popular to use on women at this time, but I'd suggest upping the intensity of the fill light to produce a more feminine style to reduce the shadows on her face and brighten her shawl and be better for a fashion photo. Her hands seem a little too tense and having her relax them would make for a more graceful look.   Posted: 12/27/2019 08:21:39

Very good shot, beautiful model, good makeup.
In my proposal I've used lights from a shot made on a stage with artificial smoke, I think she has the oportunity to show his eyes better.   Posted: 12/27/2019 13:24:18
