Is that for the sofa or the model?

Sofa, of course!

The highlights on the sofa back don't bother me as much as the way the back of the negligee straps, being a little washed out, make it look as if she was photoshopped in with a bad mask job. If you can re-shoot, you may want to adjust the angle a little to avoid that. Otherwise, I think it's a well done shot of an attractive lady.

So you are saying that blocking some of the strap is viewed the same as cutting off a models feet or fingers. Will keep that in mind for the next shot. Going to have to make a check list of all the tips and suggestions for the next time I shoot.

Thanks for the comments,
Craig

The lighting looks well balanced, nice catch light.
The strap across her back arm looks like its squeezing her arm in half. I would suggest removing that strap I'll bet it would look better. The angle of her head does not bother me with the nostrils that much, but the background definitely could be improved by separating it better either through more light on the background or more out of focus or both. The wood is distracting with the bright reflections.
Very attractive model.

Thanks Mike,
Next time I'm going to move the sofa further from the backdrop and use the larger sofa (12 feet long) instead of the short one. Won't dust the wood this time before the shoot, maybe that will help the reflection.
