did you have this on a tripod? cause it looks a bit soft...did you sharpen at all?

perhaps move the screen further back to blur it out more so it's not so disctracting around her hair. also watch for the skin being pinched by the fabric.

My brother
From your earlier post I expect this shoot brought with it challenges. Let me say first of all that I await my first Asian female model (yep worked with a Japanese male first, which was a great learning experience). Key as I see it is you are first of all dealing with skin that is not caucasian nor is it African, middle eastern or whatever. It is beautifully warm and most often luxuriously smooth. Second, you as a White Male like myself have an impression of Asian models and therefore cast them in that light. Hey, we're just photographers here. So with that said. Yes the image looks a little soft but quite frankly that works for me because of the flowers and the other parts of the environment. What tricks me a little is that there is an overall tonal quality and a compositional quality to the image. Tonal is earth tones which I would expect but within the compositional the dress and her lipstick gather more of my attention than her eyes or her face. Don't get me wrong bro' I could see myself shootin this as you did. There is enough going on within the whole composition that her face is not the prime attention catcher, at least for me. There is also a green cast on her shoulder that secondarily bothered me but quite honestly I think that was only because I got caught up with the dress. She is lovely and you need to shoot and share more.

As I said I am woefully bankrupt in beautiful Asian women.

Mike,

Thanks so much for posting. I get the green cast, but the earth tones? I would figure a little more green on purpose to get that. Do you care to expound a little?

Hey, if you come out my way, I'll get you an Asian model or two.

By earth tones I mean the warm yellow to brown. Between her skin and the background I see the warm rich browns. The red dress kind of pops, so my eye gets locked in on it. All that said red is a prominent color within Asian cultures. The more I look at it I think my problem (mine not yours) is that the texture of the red fabric draws attention because it carries highlights. Minor stuff here just my old eyes I guess. The green on the shoulder may be a refelction from something outside the frame.
