Sorry. I didn't see your other post.

Very feminin look.
Normally i would say no to dappled lighting, but i do like the design that it throws on her cheek seeing how it is a crisp shadow. It reminds me of the shaped grids that you can place in front of stobes/flashes.

That being said, she does not need as much eye contact as she is basking in the warmth of the sun. It isn't something that i would normally go for, but for the occasional photo i think it works.

No problem Micro :)

Thanks for this comment, because this were EXACTLY my thoughts!
First I tried to put her out of this position but I couldn't so I tried it with the shadows in her face and after taking the picture I thought: WOW :)

It's different looking than the usual portrait, but the dappling works as an "extension" of the background patterns of the leaves. I think the one thing I don't like is her eyes; I'd like to see them a little more lit. It would be interesting to compare the shot as posted and one with brighter eyes to see if it would or wouldn't be an improvement.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I don't think this is showing off her good side. It's the broad lighting. She looks great in the other image in which she faces the camera straight on.

My least favorite of the four...I think the dappled light on her face is totally distracting to me and her eyes are very dark.
