    Hey Pierre, thanks for sharing this shot! Perfect job on the assignment; I think the light could have been just a bit softer in some places, (under her jawline) but overall it looks good.

    My main critique, unrelated to the assignment, would be two things. Firstly, it looks like focus wasn’t perfectly achieved on her eyes, if that’s what you were going for. Maybe you were trying to shoot softly for most of everything other than her lips, but if you were trying to focus on her right eye, I would have shot multiple shots with either single or continuous focus, with a single focus point right on her lower eyelash.

    Secondly, I would have retouched out this one stray hair. ;-)

    Thanks Matt! So I shot this with an 85 1.4 manual. I still need to practice for to achieve good focus without the auto. But thanks so much for the constructive advice.
