Unfortunately her hands under her chin are hidden by the light which seems to make her arms look a little distracting / confusing?
Comments or critique welcome.

I like it nice touch. I tried seeing what was in front of her prior to reading the comment on her hands. Still well done.

It's a great photo, and nicely lit. Maybe try it again and reposition the hands, I still think its one to keep.

I like the look of the first one, but I agree, the hands are distracting. I was puzzled by it until I read your comment below the shot.

I am not as fond of the second one.


Critique and advice are always appreciated, even when it's brutally honest.
