Wow, very nice portrait. Beautiful subject, beautiful eyes. And I love that even though her hijab has such a complex pattern it doesn't detract one bit from the subject.

Obviously that was part of a bigger shoot, right? I mean, using 130mm lens you must have needed a ton of reflectors (and assistants?) or I-dunno-what to get that superb lighting all over her face and yet retain good, dark shadows in the deeps of her shale.

G'day Vaske

Another of your really superb images of a beautiful woman ~ I don't know where you find them !! ... and as PP ^ says "a very nice portrait of a beautiful subject"

As to the focal length of lens used - I would presume you have carefully chosen it to enhance her facial features and to exclude any distortions as one may get from trying to capture the image using a 'more-conventional' nifty-50 lens

Looks like a magazine shot. The skin is too smoothed for my taste, but that's what what get's published these days.
