    Hi Jared,I’m loving the light and the pose on this one, very solid! Did you have a reflector or other light source off to our left, or is that just natural light? It looks quite nicely balanced, and I see a bit of shadows on her tummy from the strings that go in both directions, which is a bit distracting.

    Like I said this pose is great, however I did want to mention that another great shot would have been, of course, if you had completely killed all the light coming from our left, and then had her look either out the window to our right, with her chin up a bit, …or to our left, chin down again, into the darkness.

    What’s short lighting?

    This image is almost flawless. Wonderful shot Jared. Pose to lighting and exposure is fantastic. A couple small things that I’ve noted below. Fantastic image.

    There are a couple flyaways like this one that are over dark areas that are particularly noticeable. Her hair style is meant to have some, but I’d trim out the ones that are overly pronounced in PS.

    I’d prefer that this flyaway was pulled in while the shot was taken so it doesn’t cover the chest.

    Fantastic use of the arm to define out the hips.

    Broad lighting the face here, but it works for the subject since she is quite lean to begin with. Great job balancing the shadows on the left side of her face. The highlight on her nose is perfect.

    Probably the biggest adjustment that would help here is just raising the chin slightly to straighten out and further define the jawline.

    Fantastic expression, a slight smirk might be nice to give it a little more of that playful/sexy feel to the image.

    Slight discoloring here, remove in PS

    Nix this grate as the shape is a little odd and dark.

    I’d trim this highlight as well, or just darken a bit so it doesn’t distract.

    Before printing, remove the little dark/bright areas on the ground background that can print as overly bright/dark areas that could potentially be a little distracting.

    Either pull the pants up a bit to remove the belly button, or reveal the belly button, it’s a little odd when it’s only partially seen.
