Nice shots, and a gorgeous model, (I wish I had some Alien bees! There's on my "to get" list), but that watermark just slays me. It ruins the photos.

Do you really think somebody on POTN is going to steal photos of a perfect stranger? I can see putting watermarks on your proofs so your customer doesn't steal them, but here?

Please review the Image Posting Rules. Your images were over the 1024x1024 limit, so I linked them. If you resize, you can put them up again.

The light looks hot in both of them to me. Shooting at f/14 you must have had your lights cranked and right up close :)

If you have enough room and can't get the ratio you want with your lighting you can move them back and reduce the light. If the space is cramped then you have to just turn them down.

The background in the first shot looks like either your backdrop or your sensor is dirty.

If you had a little less light I think these would be very nice.

One of the people on POTN could be a customer of his or maybe he only makes one proof for all purposes?

If I were out to steal some photos a photo forum would be a likely place for me to look too :)

Nice shots, but I agree with the previous poster - light looks a touch too hot. Also on the first pic, you may want to use the healing brush on her shoulder blade/back area - my eye seems to be drawn to the "imperfections" there.

Note that the pics are hosted on Flickr - where much "theft" can take place. I watermark all my photos on Flickr with my website address, not that I'm worried about someone stealing my photos and making money (not that I think they are worth a lot ;) )...but so that if they do, at least the link to my website is displayed!...free advertising! :D

Suzy, I will resize, thanks.

Chairman, they are on my flickr.. and some costumers go on them.. but I will make it better next time.

Solinger, you are right.. I didnt have much space to work at. And no, it wasnt a backdrop.. just a normal rugby white wall..

Will buy a backdrop soon =)

Pridash, will work on that =)

Thanks guys =)

A little too much sharpening I think.

Lovely young lady though. She has a very exotic look about her. Hope it's a long and fruitful photographer/model relationship.
