This was one of my favorites from today's shoot. Was unsure if I should have removed the white highlights from the window or not. Also havent done D&B before but maybe this couldve been applied to it? All critique welcome thank you *Note, image is much softer, it is not as sharp as it appears*

THe biggest issue I have is you have lost almost all of the detail in the dress. I am also not sure how much I like the facat that her right arm is out of the shot. Maybe pull it back a bit to get more of her in the shot, or have her do something different with her arm so it does not get cut off right at the elbow.
Probably should tone down the window hightlights a little bit at well. But that is just personal preference for me.

The pose looks uncomfortable for the subject.

Some cameras, some lenses

Prior to doing another shoot...locate a good beautician and use a better quality wig. ;)

You have blown out the whites on her dress. The laying down pose is really hard to nail a good angle. If I'm going to attempt this pose I take a lot of different angles. The best angle I find is almost upside down. (The opposite direction you shot) It elongates the neck and hides double chins. With the angle you shot at, it looks like she's looking down at you which shortens the neck and can look awkward. Watch for cropping of the limbs. Get the model to pose both arms closer around her head.
