The colors are great. The background and shirt really pull out those amazing eyes!

G'day Matt

Lovely model, great image - keep going
This image seems slightly dark on my screen - is it -1/2EV down?

Regards, Phil

Cheers Oz! The histogram was fine so it may be your monitor?

Thanks anyway,

This is not a comment, but a question.

As I look at the subject, her eye on the left of the photo is slightly larger than her eye on the right. My guess is that she is right-eye dominate.

Would the photo be better if the set up were flipped? Bring in the light from the other side (the subjects right) and make the other eye the center of the photo, thus shifting the open space from the right side of the photo to the left?

Lots of people have one eye slightly larger than the other, so I am not in any way taking away at the beauty of Stefanie. I'm asking the seasoned veterans about dominate eye photography advice.

Thanks!

Michael

Great colors, good composition!

There's just one thing that kinda bugs me... To me, it looks like she has a black eye (the eye that's in the light). I don't know if this was on purpose, or maybe she really did get into a fight. But, she is such a pretty girl and I can't help but focus on what appears to be bruising.

Hi guys,

In lieu of comments received, I've slightly modified the original image by lightening the skin around the eyes and also the eyebrows.

Let me know what you think :)
