Wow, I really like this.

You handled her dark skin very well. I am intrigued by how the texture of the light falling on her body mimics the texture of the light on the columns.

My only comment is that the crop at the bottom -- it feels like you cut her a little short. With that said, as I visualize a crop a little further down, I can see you hitting her at the elbows -- no good, and then any further, the shot loses its impact.

Bottom line -- 9 out of 10. Great shot! :)

Thanks. It is an in camera crop, but I can see that I could have had another inch or so to work with, but then yeah, I would have gotten close to her elbows, and that would have been awkward ;)

Thank you! It is definitely one of my all time favorites.

Stunning! The tones of her skin and the warehouse and the contrast of all the colors are amazing. Great composition too.

very nice shot, my only critique is that the horizon is slightly tilted (not enough that it looks purposeful), and that logo has got to go....it looks very 80's prom-ish. very nice use of natural light though.

If it's tilted, it's a minuscule amount. The door in the background is crooked.. I checked per the columns and they may be off, but not a significant amount. Yeah I know.. I need to work on the logo. :P I have friends supposedly making me one, I know like 3 graphic designers, and you know.. not a priority.

Lovely work. Nicely done spotting the light and turning her into it.

Oh come on.. be more original.. the logo has already been commented on. Perhaps I should just leave it 'terrible' so I can be distinctive.

I have to agree the capture is excellent but the logo does take the umph away from your work.

While you're at it, change the spelling of your first name, too. ;)

Love the image and the tones. Great use of color and light. The tilt bugs me though. The image is so close to perfection that the imperfection really stand out.
