About the Image(s)

Technical: 1/200, f/5.6 ISO 100 at 62 mm (FF)

I saw once a picture like that, and I wonder if I could take such a picture. It was in July 2021 in a studio. Professional model.
I have my own opinion (I had to do better….)

Classical treatment (objective, decreased a lot the highlight, increased the shadow and white, decrease the clarity rand texture). Square format seems to be adapted.

I like it, great tones and clarity. It has an intensity to it that is captivating. Her eye pulls me right in, then I see the camera and the rest. I think cropping her right arm works well, and much better than the full arm in the color version. Good one.   Posted: 10/05/2021 09:47:20

What you don't say, was the studio shoot solo or a group shoot so you did not have control of the lights. The problems with the image is the original lighting, they are very safe and have over light the model from all angles which leaves you nothing to use when you return with the image to your PC. So being braver with the lighting would help.
The work you have done is very good to get the result you have from the original you took. But you need the ground work first.
Watch your focus, it should have been on the eye not the camera, the eye is just falling off.
Good effort.   Posted: 10/15/2021 07:51:59

You have a lot going on here: a fine model, a prestige camera, and an interesting human/camera/eye concept. I take it from your comment and the composition itself that the main point is the human/camera/eye concept. If so, I think the model draws attention away from that because she is nude, blonde, and engaging more as a person that a photographer. I suggest cropping down to the most basic elements of the human/camera/eye composition, as attached. What do you think?
I have attached a second image, a famous shot by Andreas Feininger (of photographer Dennis Stock for Life Magazine).   Posted: 10/16/2021 16:13:46
