This seems to be an attempt at a high-key portrait.

All I can say really is that the composition is good and the eyes are nice, and of course the subject is rather beautiful.

As to whether it's successful as a high-key shot we step outside my area of competence. It doesn't seem quite right to me but we really need someone who knows this stuff to comment on the technical details.

I think getting high-key work right is very much a matter of being master of your lighting set up, and is very very hard to do without a set of studio lights.

If Rodney's still lurking I'm sure he could help, because he really is an expert at this stuff.

if there were just a little more detail in the nose i think this would be perfect. as it is i think it's darn good .

its a great composition.. and the expression is just perfect..

i agree with peripatetic, high-key type of look is really difficult, if not impossible, to do without a studio lighting setup.. the trick is to get the high key look without loosing details.. here you have lost detail in the nose and the lips because there is too much lighting difference between the two sides of the face.. with a studio setup you will be able to have full control and will be able to fine-tune it until you get the high-key look without loosing details in important areas such as the lips/eyes/nose..

best of luck,
dustin
