Not bad but I think the skin processing if overdone and having the hand coming in from the side of the frame gives a very disjointed feel.

I don't know...I mean the hand coming into the frame/cropped out elbow.....yea, I can maybe see that but the skin processing looks great to me.
Beautiful model and image!

Would like to see a little more on the left of the frame, and the skin on her face is a little over-processed. Other than that, very nice.

+1. I don't care for the PP. To me natural light means just that, natural light. Ken, you take pictures of gorgeous models but have the tendency of over doing the skin tones. Makes them look fake

Thank you all for the comments.

Wolfs - natural light is one thing - processing is another ?!

This is true but what good is natural light when so much processing needs to be done? It takes away from any type of light being used. Sorry but that's just my 2 cents. Like I said, you do wonderful photography but I'd love to see you tone it down just a bit on the skin tones.

I think it rocks. This is your style not theirs. If we all processed the same then this site would be boring. Keep up the fantastic work. Your concepts are great, your models are even better and your processing tops it off perfectly.

Ken,

I thought you posted this in the People Sharing section not the Critique Corner section. ;)

I have always enjoyed viewing your images and (personally) greatly respect your knowledge to light your subject - either naturally or in very few cases with lights. I also have come to realize that when you compose an image that thought does go into it, so who am I to critique your work.

Keep shooting and I will keep viewing.

:) some just have to say something and others like to take a shot :P - I wish they would just contribute more (or in some cases contribute something).

Yeh, natural and available light is my favourite, so challenging. I find studio work so boring these days
