Hi Dawg,

Another awsome portrait! She obviously wasn't intimidated by the Bigma. . . I think most people would be.

I really like the lighting.

There are some strange rectagular areas in the lower right corner though. . .

I don't like the artifacts in her eyes, but it for sure this is a very nice model and a vere good portrait. Plus it really works in b&w.

I know, this is "only" the forum version, but for the print version I'd really start over with the smoothing/postprocessing tbh.

Delightful picture Dawg! I did not realize that the Bigma was capable of working at such a close range. How far away was she from the lens?

Dawg,

The light and texture are just amazing. She is also a beautiful girl and her expression a perfect match for the shot. I also think this is the perfect portrait to render in b&w as the skin texture comes out so silky smooth. I was looking closely at the reflection in her eyes for the source of light. Two windows or artificial? This shot just blew me away.

Mike
