Nice work. While the headboard makes a great place for your logo I am not sure it is the best overall crop for the image. I would have done it tighter but that is nothing more than personal preference, not a criticism. Thanks for sharing.

It's a very pretty picture, but I'm not clear on why it's "vintage" glamour. Black-and-white does not a vintage shot make. When I think vintage I think Bruno Bernard (http://www.bernardofhollywood.com) or Peter Gowland (http://www.petergowland.com).

That being said, for what it is, whether it's vintage or not, it's pretty good. I would have used a shallower DOF or a deeper one if I could, but I don't know the conditions under which you shot and this might have been the optimum setup. The "corner" formed by the leftmost pillow is a little distracting. That's about all the complaints I have.

Hi. This is a nice picture, but doesn't look vintage to me. The model's hair is too modern and her makeup is more year 2000, than vintage looking. There is a hair/makeup artist on ******** who goes by "Synthe" who does terrific hair and makeup for retro shoots. Her images will drop your jaw. Take a look to see what I am talking about. If you need the webpage, drop me a note and I will get back with you. Sincerely, Angela

I have to agree with Mike on the placement of your name/logo. Of course the wierdest thing is seeing MY initials on your picture... lol.. my initials are ACG as well.

so I just found that a bit unerving.. but I like the picture.

Thanks to all who critiqued/responded. Mike, good point about the headboard, in retrospect the image could gain a lot more impact if that was cropped out. Also, I think I used the term "vintage" too easily; perhaps it is more that just soft-focus/diffusion to make an image "vintage". Again thanks to all; your words help me become a better photographer. Regards, Austin Germaine
