And eyes (Center of attraction - or as you hope to be) is on the darker side.

Its actually good that you don't have the wire at the back of phone.

Image is not as sharp as you want to see it.

Model is too much turned into doll.

Overall a very good image and did great.

I am not a professional, but since I do notice one thing its that her belt part doesnt really fit. Not fault of your own. The undies look too small, she is probably very tall, so it gives an awkward feel to the image. Also, did you have to move a head off of an image to place in this one to make the perfect image? This could be a lighting issue playing tricks, but the technicalities arent my strength obviously (look at MY photography and you'll conclude that) but I can look from a practical standpoint and note little things. Just looks like the head is enlarged by either how the lighting falls or was taken from another image. Hardly noticable, really, so if you did move the the head you did great with it.

But I think its a great photo. Hard to critique it though.

I really like this composition but I am not such a fan of the lighting. It looks like you’ve used just one light to the models left and you could have used another from the camera position. This would have softened some of the shadow in her face, legs and arms.

Canon 5D, 350D, lots of patience and a sack of other stuff.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

As far as Photoshop alterations go, I used the liquify tool to slim down her thighs and some muffin top that was coming out of the corset. Looking at it now, I should have used a layer to add in the garter straps at their original proportions because they did get too skinny when I slimmed down the legs.

Lighting. I'm still learning in this area. One main light with an octabox to camera right and a large PLM high and slightly left for fill. Now that I look at the gradient, I think I could move that light lower.

I could probably stand to add some lightness and sharpness to the eyes. However, a little grain was added to give the picture a little more gritty feeling and I was going for a darker, more shadowy kind of look.
The overall look of the model was supposed to be a little glamazon and barbie doll like, so I'm pretty happy with the overall feel of the image and conveying the idea, but I appreciate the critiques on the finer points!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the thighs looked a bit off.

Overall I like the look, and I can see what you say you were trying for. For for my tastes though, I'd like to also see you try it a bit brighter so that it shows off the details in the stockings, corset and her face more; no law says you couldn't shoot it both ways as long as she was already standing there, right?!
