Do you you think this looks o.k. ? I ran it through Lightroom and adjusted a bit. I had a gold umbrella on her left side and a AB800 for main light with an apollo softbox.

I looked at the first one and maybe it was overshopped here is the out of camera.

Besides the color issues. The light is a litte too strong. The photo needs some contrast but if you up the contrast you are goint to blow out the highlights. She is a very attractive woman. I would re-shoot.

I concur with the others... For interest, there should be some shadow--not necessarily strong, but any shadow helps to define the shape of the subject.

try it with a single light first, and then add a second if you think you need it. Also, I would shoot in the portrait orientation for this sort of shot.

You did ask for my opinion, so I gave it.

But I said I would re-shoot a day ago, so I got the idea it was not great.

Anyways here is one from the re-shoot...
