Very nice shot, the lighting is outstanding. You sure have mastered studio lighting, it's dynamic and interesting. Compliments your pretty model.

Yay - great lighting and the bear... well - I can understand the smile .

While it IS a big smile from the model for some reason it doesn't really feel like an all too artificial "cheeese" shot and that's what I like here. Color tones on the skin and the white blouse(?) is very nice.

For me it looked a bit on the soft side, probably a problem of the forum, don't know. I bet the full sized image is pin-sharp...
So I tried for some detail works - especially the eyes could use some "boost" from my point of view, also the bears fur and the armlet and the (hm... what is it called in english...??) fine ornaments(?) of the blouse. Embroideries?

Don't know how it comes out on your monitor, though. And I hope you don't mind the lil' PP.

Kind regards,
Th.

Hey Eddy, one question... How do you get your wife to let you take these photos of all these fine looking young ladies? Mine would be having a fit!

Thank you, I always appreciate your comments.

Studio lighting is a trial and error affair. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don't.

This one had been saved and reduced a couple of times. The original is a bit sharper. Although, not as sharp as you have made it. I tend to not like over sharpened images. The softness adds to the Aura of the Model.

Thanks.
