Blimey, some mixed reactions here, thanks to all who took the time to comment. Sorry if some of you don't class it as a head shot, it does show parts of two heads though, not other body parts ;-)a
We all interpret things differently I suppose.

Good grief. I can't believe you guys are picking those nits. 'It's not really a headshot....waaaa, waaaa...' Please.

Great picture, EOS fan.

Thank you :-)

Guys, the subtext of my point was that IMO one of the key functions of a head shot is the ability to identify the subject. IMO that function is necessarily compromised when you bisect the composition of the face. In my initial comment I conceded that it was both a good photo, and the issue was a matter of differing opinion. I didn't intend to start up a disagreement that can't be resolved.

I LIKE THE SHOT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

I'm colorblind, so forgive me.. but is that the same backdrop in both photos, just lit differently? Well done, btw :)

Correct. It's white seamless. Both shots are a single flagged speed light on the background; one with a 1/4 CTO, the other with a blue gel.

Really like this lighting, do you have a setup shot? Mind explaining it?

If I shoot with the same setup today I'll grab a pull-back shot. It's a 48" octabox feathered from above and camera right, and a silver reflector opposite camera left. Background is white seamless with a flagged speed light using gels.

It's amazing how much visual pull the sticker in the bottom of the camera has. Her face is well lit and her expression is nice but my eyes just want to go to the camera. And I don't think it's just because I like cameras.
