I don't share images to hear how great they look. Of course, if you think they look great and want to say so, I appreciate that too. I'd much prefer to hear suggestions on how I can improve it, however.

I think it is a very nice portrait, the only things I question are, has the image been softened (neat image or something like that) a little more than needed, her skin appears a little too smooth. Also have you done any work on her teeth? They appear very light, maybe she has great teeth:-) Apart from that the shadow that makes the teeth appear dark on the left and bright at the very front could be why Im asking about the light colored teeth.

I like the photo and choice of the necklace, I know odd comment but I do like it. One thing thatmakes the picture seemodd is the amount her eyes are dilated compared to how much catch light there is in them.

This was shot at a higher ISO so I did run a little noise reduction on it. She has flawless skin and with properly applied make-up looks even more flawless. The noise reduction has little affect on her skin other than removed the slight noise from the high ISO.

We actually didn't have much light to work with and I was shooting at a high ISO. Dim light explains the size of the pupils. I edited the catchlights a tad because I want it to appear the light is in fact coming from a large window. Now you have me rethinking that decision. :?:

I agree that the shadows and highlights tend to overemphasize the chin, and give a somewhat 'dented' look to the right side of her face. One other thing that bothers me is the hair, whch lacks detail, even for a .JPG. It appears that the noise reduction was a little too aggressive.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I don't do much people photography, but do enjoy seeing good portrait work. Most of your posts are spot on as far as I can tell, with very good lighting and composition.
