I like the "quality" of the photo in general and I think the overall lighting and model have great potential. When I first saw your original presentation of the shot, the inner frame made it look like an old french post card. I think it still has that possibility. But the slight distortion caused by the wide angle lens is still a problem. The real problem is in the little details, however. For example the white glove on the arm in back of the head is very white and bright and calls attention to itself. The position of the bra strap I believe would have been better on the arm, as it looks more like an accident here. If you note the black stocking on the leg facing the viewer it seems to have a black piece sticking up onto the leg. That breaks the harmony in that area. the chair legs in the background prove a distraction also (but they could be cloned out).



Cheers,
rfs

This image has a great combination of texture (the comforter) and tone (her skin). I also like the contrast of her eyes and eyebrows and her garters, stockings and tatoo. Keep it up!

Cheers!

I like the shape she's making with her body, but your lens selection is killing you here. Her legs look too small for her body and her head looks too big. Compositionally, The upper right corner bothers me because of the white elbow and stool/table. My eye is pulled to that corner and won't move off of it. I would suggest trying to compose the shot so that her body moves diagonally from the lower left of the image to the upper right. My eye will then follow that line and end at her face. As it is now, my eye moves from left center to right center, which isn't as interesting. Others have mentioned the clothing issues, so I won't repeat them.

There are technical aspects that are pretty strong. You did a pretty good job of separating your subject from the rest of the image. Also, I really like the warmth of the shot. I think the tones work well here. Overall a good first post.
