Always enjoy your work. You have a knack of finding very beautiful models to pose for you.

The first image appears to have light fall off into your lens at image left. It seems cloudy...or this could be my monitor.

Like the sharpness of image two but my eyes are led to the small light shining through her hair - it's a little distracting and had my mind looking to interpret it.

This can aslo be said of your third image with the light between her legs.

But all in all, I'm sure you enjoyed working with this model and she enjoyed the images you captured for her.

See if these look any better to you.

The first image still doesn't appear to have the richness of colour as the other images. I've had the same problem when I've had a light directed back toward the lens and not having it screened off. This may or may not have been what had happened when you took this shot.

But then again, it may just be my monitor...I wonder if anyone else sees this on their monitor?

What makes that odd is that there weren't any lights directed towards the camera lens. All lights were aimed towards the model and background. There also wasn't any color desaturation done during the processing on any of the images. The only difference between the first set and the second set is that the wall was darkened on the left side of the first picture and darkened on the right side of the second one.

Hmmmm....was the light possibly being reflected off a surface?

Would like to here other member's opinions on this...

Other things in the room was a cloth couch, a wooden table, some books and the two tone wall but that was painted with flat paint. I don't see any light spill anwhere on my monitor and thought that maybe it was just the light on the wall that gave that appearance.

Maybe, after looking at your posting of the two images and comparing them, it could be a sharpness issue that's making it look "cloudy".

I'm comparing the hair and eyes between the two images and the second one looks sharper. Or maybe it's just my opinion...

Hmm, Never heard of that one before.

Great shots as always. I also noticed the same "cloudy" attribute in the first image, but not in the close-up. It's most noticeable in the model's hair on her right side - just not as vibrant and deep as every other image I have seen of yours. I was thinking it was flare as well. I had a lot of trouble with flare using shoot-through umbrellas. Nothing pointed anywhere near the camera, but it turns out I was getting bounce from all over. The problem went away when I put foam board flags on either side of the camera.
