I like it, but I'm not sure if that thing on right balances the shot or forms a distraction.
Don't like the tattooed eyebrows but you didn't do that ..... did you ?

Like the lighting on her but agree the lamp on the right is more of a distraction.

Calmness. Strength. Resolution. Hint of joy.

This is a very good shot that could be great. Lose the right-side object. If you have pixels available, change the crop to bring her head to the right and add some space on the left. (If it were mine I'd even create that left extension, cloning clothing as needed.) Add just a touch of expose. Greatness!

You know, I just might do that, mate. Be right back in a few hours /we'll put little Olafs to sleep, have some Saturday's cake at first/.

What did you mean by expose?

What great chit-chattery! . Always so much personality in your posts, Olafs! . Love that!

About the image, I love the way it is composed, with the subject looking OUT OF the frame instead of in towards the center of the frame. . This has become a bit of a signature style for you and I absolutely love it. Everybody always wants to do the same old same old same old obvious thing and have the subject looking in toward the center of the frame. How damn boring is that?! I love that you break away from the norm and do something a bit different.

As for the background object in the right side of the frame, I actually like it. . I don't know what it is, but to me it looked like a small bookshelf with most of the books placed in the regular standing-up way, and then a couple of books crammed atop the others lying down on their sides.

I really like that it is there because it provides the scene with a "sense of place". . If you removed it, then what context is left? . You'd pretty much be left with the subject and ..... nothing else. . Could it still work that way? . Yeah, I suppose. . But then it wouldn't have anything interesting about it because all meaningful context would be lost.


.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Whoops? Brain said exposure. Fingers did their own thing.

Just a little bit more apparent light -- maybe just bringing out highlights and leaving shadow alone -- could, I think, bring out more of the great texture of her skin.

I don't mind seeing the bookshelf, the light itself is out of place for me.

The light shining on the books, if it were out of frame i think it would be better, just my taste.

So! I went with a bookshelf. Darkened it, moved a bit and almost erased the lamp itself.

The BIG issue here was the fast, that we could see window frame behind her, thus there were an obvios location of ...something... And in this image it just didn't make sense to make the right side completely dark, as it didn't add to story. So, yeah. Went with the shelf. Pity, of course, I could't pull it out more - I shoul take an extra frame with lit room separately. Well, yeah. Not the best shot.

P.S. got the call from local magazine - maybe will start shoot for them. Fingers crossed, friends. If it goes through - beer on me!
