I'd really like some honest feed back on this image. It's my first real attempt at a 30-40's glamour thing. Thank you in advance.

I like it. Could you post the specifics of the shot? camera, lens, lighting type, light postions/angles, f-stop, shutter, etc?

I have to agree with Don. The postion of her head and her gaze does not look natural but more like she is uncomfortable. Don posted a nice example.

I think its close to the era idea, but with that pose, probably better that she not be looking at the viewer. That would capture the spirit of the era better. Also the light on the face is a bit too hot as it makes several shiny spots (that may be a make up issue, however).



Cheers,
rfs

Since everyone has mention the gaze/expression I won't bring it up again. Oops. Its because of her head position that the shadow under the nose is unflattering. Different head position would equal butterfly lighiting.
