The second one makes her look a little slimmer, IMO. I also like the way the netting just sort of melts into the background. White balance might be off a tad, depending on what you were going for.

Well done.

I don't like either one. First of all, neither is sharp. The focusing looks off.

There are no catch lights in her eyes. They look cold and lifeless.

The backdrop is a bit overwhelming for this image. The brightness dominates.

You have a gorgeous model there. Try again.

If I have to choose then it would be the second.

I think sometimes its odd that the only standard is the same old thing again and again.

Let me explain the shot and the effect I was going for.

This shot is at very high ISO and shutter speed against a window with natural light. I have many shots with strobe and catch light and such but isn't everyone tired of the same old shot again and again.

Trying something different but apparently without success. I guess I just need to do what's expected.

Hmm....you posted the image and asked for an opinion.

You didn't hear what you wanted to hear and now we're stuck in "the same old thing again and again."

We offer constructive criticism and now you "just need to do what's expected."

I sometimes wonder why people even BOTHER to ask for an opinion or a critique, and then I scratch my head and wonder why I even bother trying to help certain people and offer pointers.

As usual, the reasonable "solution" here is somewhere between the two positions.

The O.P. certainly realized that he was doing something different and that it was not a "standard" glamour image. He probably should have said "this is what I was doing, and why. What are your thoughts?"

For what he was attempting, it might well be a nice shot. But I agree with Dave, in that I do not care for it either.

Enough said.

I think it was the simplistic comment: Gorgeous model. Try again.

I will post the standard images of her with catch light and reflector for your perusal as well.

Did not mean to offend you David or make your effort on my behalf seem wasted.

I'm with you.

There are too many contributors that only see images through a strict set of rules. They are unwilling to think out of the box that they have become comfortable in, and wish to keep the rest of us in their box. Then they play hurt, instead of engaging in a meaningful discussion.

Of the images, number 2 is my preference.

You're right. I never would have thought to have my copyright notice protruding out of the model's rib cage.

Way to think outside of the box!!
