I like the soft coloration and overall high-key effect. I'm not crazy about the hair over her face in this pose, though. Makes me feel that the image is incomplete somehow.

DannyZ,

Nice image. The hair in the face works for me. There is enough face for me to connect the dots. I really like the feeling it creates. I like more saturation, but the lightness works here.

The only thing I would have changed is that I would have wanted to keep the top of her head. If you have it with the head, could you post it so we can see it too?

Thanks

I like to see the eyes, but you weren't going for that look, so I'd say you did really well. I like th high key effect and her hair adds a wild look.
Very nice work.

I like it. The hair in the face along with the sheet gives a nice disheveled look, like she's still in bed, or just getting out. The problem with an interpretation like that is that the all white background doesn't fit in.

Can I assume that this was shot in front of seamless? If you're trying to tell a story why not put her in a bedroom?

Thank you everyone for your replies! =)
I'm still learning, so they're very much appreciated.

I added another photo below from the same shoot. It has a different feel to it, but I think it touches on many of the suggestions. =)

Mr. Ford, thank you for the comments. I see what you mean sir. I guess I hoped the hair would help draw the viewer's attention by obscuring her expression/emotion.

Mr. KG, thank you as well. Unfortunately, that was the crop from the camera.

Mr. Vic, thank you!!! It's good to hear from you. =) I hope all has been well since we met!

Mr. Zytkiewicz, yes, you are correct sir. It was indeed shot in front of seamless. Thank you for the suggestion and the great sample photo. I did not have a bedroom suitable for the feel I wanted for this series. Instead, I tried to create the bedroom on the seamless. =P

Here is the second photo:

Funny! Here is a prime example where if you shoot by the rules, light in eyes, hair off face, good saturation and exposure, you get a less successful image than the one that broke all the rules.

With all due respect to the model and creator, this is just a bump on a log picture of a girl. I liken it to a between shots, at rest, pose and it really isn't very interesting. Not as much flow or energy as the first image.

Don't get me wrong, still a pretty girl, but you didn't "do" anything with her. The sheet clumped around her hides her form and makes her look dumpy. Crop off the whole bottom of the image, pull the sheet off both shoulders and then you have a bust of a beautiful woman. Create an interesting line with the sheet above or between her breasts.

Great eyes, but unfocused off in the distance and no hint as to why. In a wedding portrait, often they look off to the future or out a window to give motivation for the off camera look.

On posing tip for hands. Rotate them palm down and tip the knuckles back lowering the wrist. That will show the thinest side of the hands make them more graceful.

I'll bet you grew up in the age of television!

Us older types that still remember the days of radio and even (gasp!) books still have remnants of imagination and don't need to have everything spelled out for us.

I agree with kgphoto that this isn't as interesting an image as the first you posted.

I also keep thinking about his comment to the first - about not cropping off the top of the head. I think that having the entire crown of hair would have remedied my "feeling of incompleteness" issue. That's an excellent image, sir.

Keep at it.

I agree that obviously the first photo is great, although I don't think it breaks any rules. Having hair in the face is fine if it works although it's hard to do effectively.

THis is also a tough exposure of white on white and you did well, thanks for sharing. Lovely expression too!
